    You will come across as a nice patient, but academically and in relation to law, only your debating carries weight, in my opinion. Arrange for some work experience NOW and mention it (i.e. I have arranged a two week placement with... in the summer, which I expect will...).

    Work experience placements might not be too hard to come by if you try smaller firms - you're doing them a favour too, sometimes.
    Just taking a wild guess here, I'm assuming you think I'm applying for 2010? :p: Haha, I wish but I haven't even started year 12 yet.
    Thanks for the help anyway, though.

    Get a work experience placement at a law firm ASAP, in that case.

    It only needs to be a week or two and you don't even need to specify what you did, just the firm's name (unless you have an interview).

    LSE doesn't do interviews but thanks I'll see what I can find (translation: beg for :p:).

    I don't think they care about ECs except for possible experience in a legal environment. I am applying for English related courses and did not mention any ECs at all, apart from one sentence about raising money for charity and sports :p:
