Law with spanish watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi, I've always wanted to be a teacher - however I watch a lot of crime programmes and law has really striked my interest. I've done work experience in a primary school and it has put me off being a teacher. I would love to study Law with Spanish and I have immersed myself in the Spanish culture and language by going to Spain and being an aupair. I am studying an open university course in law in my last year of school this year too. To make a good application and to be considered for the course would I have to have some relevant work experience to do with law? I have a lot of extra curricular things I can add to my personal statement; for example, I am deputy head girl,I'm managing director of young enterprise, I volunteer at brownies,I have done duke of Edinburgh bronze, I am a pupil supporter etc. I just think that I will sink below the rest who have work experience - is this the case?

    To apply for law you need to show an academic interest in the subject because the degree is academic and not to prepare you to be a lawyer. Work experience is helpful if relevant but not necessary.
