I am thinking about doing a law/economics or law/commerce course at USYD or UNSW and am trying to gather every bit of information I can about it.
I can handle the difficulty (if it is really difficult) but I just really want to know if it is boring and WHY exactly it can be so boring...
I just mean that I am not going to change courses because I think it is too hard, I can always try (although I don't want to try if it is boring. lol)
theres a bunch of core law subjects that they make everyone do and you will certainly run into one or more than you just dont give a fk about.
ie i fkn hated constitutional law (failed and had to do it again, fk the constitution)
and theres bullsht subjects like law and social theory, useless arts sht like that.
vice versa, all the arts/laws student are like wtf is business associations 1, wtffff is a takeover.
you get the point
If you don't have any interest in Law, then you may find it extremely dry. Often students do Law just because they got a high ATAR and they figure this out in the end.
B. Resource Economics (Hons.) IV @ USYD
Thesis: 'Consumers & Retail Energy Suppliers - A study of demand sensitivity in NSW energy markets'
Umm its more interesting than some commerce subjects imo. What sucks though is the amount of stuff that you have to read before each class.

It can sometimes be boring - but I think every degree is boring at times. Now, in my 3rd/4th year, things are a lot more interesting, most of the core units that we need for a good grounding are out of the way, and I'm starting on my electives which are obviously more interesting to me (Animal law!) In terms of subjects, I found constitutional law a bit of a drag too, ethics was god awful, and jurisprudence was a touch dry. I loved crim, torts, contracts and property law - but everyone's different. In terms of the general material, statutory law is pretty tedious in comparison to case law. Basically when it gets boring I remind myself that law is not just about information, it's about skills, and pretty much every unit and every assessment is going to help you learn to think clearly and express your ideas clearly, and that is never wasted time.
most of those subjects you mentioned blow... (except crim and torts...)
if you want to do law stay away from the draining subjects for as much time as possible... subjects such as Admin law, constitutional law, corps law etc... of course inevitably you will need to do subjects such as these...

Studying is in general boring. Not sure why I spent so much time doing it.
If I had my time again I'd spend my study time renovating and starting my housing/building/soon-to-be-hotel portfolio earlier.

I found constitutional interesting, as well as administrative.
yet to do property law though, i'm kind of dreading it, and luckily i might not have to do jurisprudence
29Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. 30And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
