I try to go for events but then conversations tend to be very transient.
MNC? Yeah, you definitely don't outearn us.

Most of my friends who did business studies at ICL end up in consultancy or marketing roles. Do you even have the intelligence to plan your career path properly?

Not sure why all of you seem so fixated on law school and the prestige of law school.
In case you’re not aware, after 2021, you no longer need a law degree to practice as a solicitor in the uk. In fact if you just have a random degree in psychology or nursing, you can still practice law. This is not the GDL route.
This is the standard route after 2021.

This is the standard route after 2021.
What is the SQE?
The SQE is a new centralised exam for solicitors, set to be introduced by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) in September 2021. So far the COVID-19 pandemic has had no affect on the SRA's plans for introducing the new assessment.

The SQE will eventually replace the GDL and the LPC, but don't be misled - it's not a course but a series of examinations taken in two stages. If you started your law training before September 2021 the SRA expect a long period of transition.

Under the new system aspiring solicitors must:

hold a degree or equivalent qualification (such as a degree apprenticeship) in any subject
pass stages 1 and 2 of the SQE
complete a substantial period of work experience
meet the SRA's character and suitability requirements.
While the SRA has not specified that the degree level qualification must be in law, it will be helpful, in a practical sense, to have an education in law to pass the SQE assessments. It's also something that many employers expect.

Following the SQE route, law graduates will qualify as a solicitor in five to six years, while it will take apprentices and non-law graduates five to seven years.

What about non-law graduates?
It's the same story for non-law graduates. If you begin to study for the GDL before September 2021 you'll be able to choose to continue down the traditional route of progressing onto the LPC and a training contract until 2032. After September 2021, the GDL will cease as a qualification route and you'll need to take an SQE1 preparation course.

For non-law graduates, qualifying under the new system may look something like this:

study for a three-year non-law degree
take an SQE1 preparation course
sit the SQE stage 1
take SQE stage 2
complete a two year period of qualifying legal work experience
satisfy the SRA's suitability and character requirements
qualify as a solicitor.

Thanks for the list, quite helpful. As a FCH should I be aiming for the local side or the international side? I want the UK payscale as it reflects my grades

When you say valued, do you mean "good job" and a pat on the back? Your expectations are unrealistic, no litigation department in any firm ever says that. You're a replaceable commodity
