    I'm just looking for a bit of advice about which of the following subjects would be the best to study with law, at the moment I'm leaning towards psychology but I'm worried that sounds a bit 'wishy washy', so to speak. By 'best' I mean which would be the most respected, or which would give me more options afterwards etc.)

    LLB Law with:
    English Literature
    History
    Psychology
    Sociology
    Criminology
    Politics

    I'm aware that the general consensus is that its best to study law by itself, but at this moment in time I'm not 100% certain that I want to pursue it as a career, at least not directly after graduating. Any thoughts would be appreciated

    I'm not so sure you should be going for the most respected option, I mean this is a degree for the next 3 years of your life. Do you have a keen interest or fancy to any of the subjects you've listed?

    Some of the subjects do, of course, overlap - Politics and Criminology gel well with certain Law modules.

    Few people actually go into a legal profession after graduating with a law degree.

    Psychology is the hardest science in the list, the others are also well-respected subjects which could open up options, but not too any great or significant extent. They do overlap, of course, Politics and Criminology gel well with certain Law modules.

    Thanks for your reply I do like the idea of doing psychology, it would only be 2 modules a year as law obviously takes up a big chunk of time, but I think I would enjoy it nonetheless. I guess I'm just getting stressed and as you said, its 3 years so its best to do something I enjoy (given that law won't exactly be a riveting experience ). Thanks again.
