    Perhaps this should go in the uni sub-forum

    If you have an interest in law then by all means study it. However, don't just do it because you think it will be beneficial. Do it because you think you will enjoy studying it for three years.

    Benficial to what? Getting a job? I'd have to totally disagree with that, a lot of employers value the skills that a Physics degree shows. Having a numerate degree will allow you to go into many jobs such as accounting, investment banking, computing etc. Look at:

    Law is a very competitive field and if you're not 100% dedicated to studying it, when applying, it will show. And besides what is the point of doing a subject for 3+ years if you're not really sure you'll enjoy it?

    Besides which you can always do a conversion course after your degree and then become a solicitor/barrister, you don't have to study law to work in the law.

    it sounds like you're more interested in sciency type things so i wouls stick to that. unless you're really committed to law its not really worth doing it.
