In the past students could often get most newspapers for 20p, only in their campus shop, but now The Times will send students books of 24 vouchers for free, each valid nationwide for one copy Monday to Friday for 25p.

Heat n rep n cute name.

Thanks! I am a law degree student - although it does not ask for proof of being a student, so anyone can get it?! Heat added

It's not worth 25p - really gone downhill in the last 5 years.

Thanks , i soon hope to be reading the Times

Anyway thanks OP, good find!

It's true that 'reading' a subject is a very old form of language. I study management. Voted hot, but wish it was the Guardian.

I used to get The Times while I was at sixth form but other than Monday's edition (with the football supplement) it's not the best newspaper, if you go into your SU you'll probably find a different broadsheet on offer each day with something for free.

got any of these for some quality newspapers like the Daily Star?

It's a pretty poor paper these days, thanks to Murdoch, but it is still the only one to publish proper law reports. Pity the Guardian doesn't, because apart from that it's a far better paper.

I just did it and Im not even a student - how will they know!?!?

well it does say you may have to show prove of student card if requested.

' I am reading law', - sounds so much better.



Nowadays, the term 'reading' tends to be applied only to courses offered at Oxford or Cambridge University.

Thanks + heat to OP!

That sounds like you are obtaining pecuniary advantage by deception.

Or, in modern speak, committing fraud by false representation.

OPA is still used. The headmaster who was convicted of killing his step daughter, then released recently after a successful appeal. was also convicted of OPA. When he was investigated it was revealed he had lied about his qualifications to get the teaching post.

Off the top of my head OPA is common law and the rest was from the Misrepresentations Act 1967.

Looks like the vouchers expire pretty soon. Item 4 of the Terms and Conditions...

The current vouchers are valid until September 1st 2008

^ lol not much use in having 24 vouchers then?

Thanks for the detail. I'm merely an interested layman in such matters. I thought OPA was still used, but understood that much of the Theft Act (in which OPA was introduced) was repealed by the Fraud Act 2006.

So, can something continue to exist in common law if the written legislation is subsequently biffed, or only if it was around in common law beforehand? Or am I making a right mess of this all?

I am in Scotland - so the law here differs - but your Theft Act from 1968 largely matched the common law here.

Common law is loses out to statue - but the law cannot move as fast as technology. This lets ridiculous scenarios appear. For example, in the USA where computer hacking of non governmental computers is normally tried as the theft of electricity from the victims PC.

After the verdict was read out the judge lifted a contempt order banning … After the verdict was read out the judge lifted a contempt order banning reporting of a charge of obtaining pecuniary advantage by deception faced by Jenkins.

That was the case I mentioned above.

Not sure but I am guessing the newsagent may ask for your NUS card as proof.

Pretty sure the newsagent wont give a toss ! The self service tills in supermarkets certainly wont.

Suddenly 'reading law' sounds so modern.So wheres it you is doing media studies then?



Love the powered wigs! Pictures please.................................:whistling:

Thanks, H&R added.

Politics at Newcastle but if that's the best you can come back with then you've clearly got a chip on your shoulder mate.

Personally, its my favourite paper, but recently they have shuffled the paper around, and I don't like the format.

great offer if you are a student. I'm not registering just in case they do for proof.

Isn't this place about Hot Deals? I'm quite suprised about the childish remarks whether someone is reading or studying! I went to uni in 96 and was stopped in the street by an ancient teacher who asked what I was reading at uni and I thought, eh?

Does it really matter??? Get over yourself, Ibiza.

Good deal btw if you read The Times.

Good lord, has the level of posts sunk so low? Ibiza, you really should be ashamed..

I hope you were intolerably bored in posting your series of pathetic digs at Charlene (and whoever else, I stopped reading soon enough) because they are truly pityful.

Cheers rowan. Heat and rep added.

Not new. I was at uni in the early 90s and student discount books brought the price of The Times down to 15p and The Guardian to 20p. I'm still reading the latter... if only on a Monday... :-D

I don't think some of the comments in here are relevent to the thread- please keep it on topic.

wish entire paper could be read online like a printed copy

well you can read the entire ]metro online...

Has anyone applied for this? Does it give you 24 vouchers you can use whenever you like, or are they fixed for specific days?
