    Basically, I'm currently applying to study law at uni next year. However, I wasn't able to get any work experience in any of the local law firms as it is quite hard and not not many law firms want to give work experience to a level students.

    My question is, will not having any work experience mean that unis won't accept me? My top choice is Westminster, also the only type of work experience I have is volunteering at a charity shop last summer.

    Many Thanks

    Work experience isn't important as law is an academic subject and doesn't lead to a specific career or job. Read around the subject and show how you've developed your academic interest in the subject.
