    I’m not sure that you can make this argument for law students and not make it for other undergraduates.

    I’m not sure you are correct. In which of York’s undergraduate programs will continued delay mean (1) lack of access to once-per-year industry-wide recruitment, related directly to the academic program, in which upwards of 80% of students participate, and (2) inability to access professional entry procedures, related directly to the academic program, for upwards of 80% of students (i.e. the ones who plan to qualify as lawyers).

    Thanks for the comment.

    True, there is a well-defined difference between a profession’s requirements of students in professional programs and the general job requirements of students in non-professional programs.

    Just because industry requirements aren’t so standardized and universal as they are for law students doesn’t mean that current York undergrads couldn’t be in a similar situation as law students — “once a year recruitment” could be admission to teacher’s college, for example.

    So while it may not be the case for all undergrads as it is for ~80% of law students, those who are impacted by deadlines are still stuck in the middle of this. Which is too bad for them.
