I have studied law in Leiden and I have followed regular, but also part-time education.In addition, I followed lectures in Leiden as well as in The Hague. This seems to me to be enough points from which possible experience to share with you, right?
Thing is that the necessary has changed.The largest change is those in the study financing. But the change to the Bachelor/Master System (in my graduation period) also makes my original vision obsolete. Finally, in Leiden a new law faculty has been pounded out of the ground (well, an old laboratory is far-rebuilt) which means the necessary for the centralization of the study in the city of Leiden.
Well, my first experiences in law studies in Leiden were mainly in the field of the massality of the combination of study, student life and the first standing on his own legs.I think that for several studies must have been golden (medicine, Psychology,…) But for me it was overwhelming. I would like to say that the novelty can still be overwhelmed. And against that is only one remedy: be prepared and learn from your mistakes.
Just a few examples: I had holiday jobs and deserve it, but could not actually deal with money at all.At home I had everything I needed and was quickly earned some extra pocket money but as a student I had to find the balance between study funding, work and studying and also find the means to live. That has taken some time. Funny thing is that I still know where I can get a cheap rubbish-bike from or easily do groceries for 芒 ‘ 卢 10,-to have a week of lunch instead of having to be lost in 脙 漏 脙 漏 n times ad MacD.
My second experience relates to the study system.Old style gave me the opportunity to criss-cross everything together (that’s why I also have three master titles in law), in terms of self-sufficience it asked very much. The BaMa system doesn’t really let you go much further if you don’t get something and is a lot of klassikaler. Handing in assignments is the lesson and that is an absolute pre. As far as the master of Constitutional and administrative law is concerned: Once you sit ID mill (read: The rhythm of preparing college, college, work piece, working group to discuss college and workpiece) then you will come out well. Criminal law and civil law I have done old style.
What I regret is that I stopped in the meantime and continued part-time.In the course of the study, the progression was too little and I could not go further in terms of growth at any given time. Also there it was: you may and may, but with full commitment.
For that reason I started studying full time in 2001.In addition, it was intended to be ready in 2004 but in the end it still became 2006. Because I was delayed again, I did state and administrative law.
I have been sorry about that last choice later.I had the first civil justice but my heart was in criminal law and there I missed two subjects of the master. This allows you to graduate. However, I found that sin and had been studying for so long that I have finished criminal law together with another master.
The point is that it doesn’t matter very much what your base is when you go to work.Although of course you should have a good story with your gradebook and the boxes you have followed. Now my choice gave me a better story (to my idea) but harsh was seeing people in criminal law (one of my current main areas) start working from a totally different background.
