We at the UEA, would like to let it be known that we offer the perfect law course for any women who, as Boris Johnson suggests, is coming to university primarily to catch and marry Mr Right.
There are many elements to that law degree, each of which can help you in this task – and help you to deal with the many problems that can occur in the process. Each has a part to play – and don’t forget that it’s not just about catching your man!
Tort Law – Whom to sue when he lets you down for misrepresentation
Contract Law – How to keep him for life
Criminal Law – What to do if Mr ‘Right’ takes a ‘playful tiff’ too far
Family Law – How to ditch him when he turns out to be Mr Wrong
Constitutional Law – Crucial, if you’re lucky enough to snare someone in line for the throne
EU law – What happens if Mr Right is a johnny foreigner?
Law and medicine – The ethical issues of tending to Mr Right’s wounded pride
Trust Law – How to turn all those empty promises into real money
Company Law – Understanding what Mr Right does all day in the City
Commercial Law – What’s yours is his, what’s his stays his
Land Law – How to sell your flat when it’s time to move in with Mr Right
Competition Law – What to do when you’re two-timed, and how to deal with unfair competition.
Employment law – Knowing what to do when your nanny or housecleaner calls in sick
Internet Law – When and how you can find out what he’s doing online
Media Law – How to get that key injunction when the paparazzi catch Mr Right out
It’s everything you need – who could possibly want more? It’s not as though women want education for any other reason.
The course texts will include regular subscriptions to Vogue, Cosmopolitan and Good Housekeeping, as well as ‘Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus’.
*Errr… in case you didn’t realise, this is a joke….
