I bet you guys have herd from people like me before and if you haven't I hope I'm in the right place!
I'm really after some advice from you guys who are already in this area of employment as I'm personally thinking of doing this myself. I have a degree in computer forensics and I was hoping to do a CGL and then continue to train to be a barrister afterwards. I really want this career and am fully prepared for the financial costs of this training but I'm getting all sorts of other things thrown at me that is starting to put me off. I was just hoping you guys could maybe give your opinions of the methods you went through to train and whether you feel that you are enjoying it or looking back you would have tried something else?
I keep getting told that because my degree isn't in law and in forensics with the conversion that I will get looked down upon and not necessarily stand much of a chance of the training I need.
Do you guys feel that it is a brilliant career to follow (Im sure you do as you probably wouldn't be doing it) or would you ward me away from it?
any opinions/advice would be much appreciated
