    Basically I'm planning on applying to:

    Oxbridge for straight Law/Jurisprudence (haven't decided between them yet)
    KCL-Law with Politics and Philosophy
    Manchester- Law with Politics
    Warwick- Law with social science
    Liverpool- Law with Philosophy

    All are qualifying law degrees, however I was wondering if it'd be a problem as my personal statement will be largely focused on Law with just a few lines on how I appreciate how Law is intertwined with other disciplines such as Politics and Philosophy etc..
    Would this be okay?

    I don't think you have any choice. I'd do more than a few lines and it would need to find the balance of being viewed alone and being able to be read as applying to that specialism.

    Concentrate on Law within your PS and briefly mention the other subject and why you want to do a combined subject course. But concentrate on Law.
