I have explained previously that I am taking a two year law program; thus I have to take some papers (courses) that are for second year students.
So currently I am taking - Constitutional, Tort (these two are for 1st yrs - to be more accurate for Part IA) and Contract, Land and International (these three are for 2nd yr student - for Part IB).
There are seven papers that one has to take to be qualified in the UK and that include Constitutional, Tort, Contract, Land, (I am taking these four this year as a Part IB student - I skipped Part IA as I entered Cambridge as an affiliated student) and EU, Criminal and Equity (these three I will be taking next year as a Part II student).
Trust me. The Cambridge tripos system is so very complicated. I still don't quite understand. Maybe I kind of understand now but I am probably not using the terms correctly.
International was an optional paper that I was "strongly" recommended to take. I would have taken IP if I could but it was "strongly" recommended for me not to take. Argh. I was a bit disappointed as I only get to choose three optional papers until I graduate but... it seems that International Law is very interesting and it definitely helps me to understand better what's going on around the world.
