Hello, I’m not sure if this is the right thread to ask this question on, but I am in my second year of Law and I have to pick my optional modules for my final year. Part of this means deciding between doing a Dissertation (which takes up 2 modules) or a smaller research project (which only takes up 1). I was wondering if anyone has any experiences or opinions of doing a Dissertation - is it something you regret? Would you have rather taken another taught module? Was it worth it? Is it something that helped you in your future career/ when applying for jobs?
I was also wondering @Jessica Booker
from the perspective of a law firm, do you think a Dissertation would be a lot more valuable in the long term when applying to VSs and TCs? Is this something law firms care about? Will I be disadvantaged if I have not done a dissertation as part of my undergrad?
We also are given the option to take a Modern Foreign Language module as an open unit. I was wondering how Language modules were seen by employers? Would it be seen as a waste to take a language module instead of another taught law module?
Thank you in advance!
