    I know that I want to be a Lawyer as I have completed work experience and spoken to lawyers. However, I am really interested in biology at university and think will achieve a good grade, achieving around 98% at AS. Can I go to Durham an or Bath, study biology, and then take the GDL (assuming that I get a 1st or 2:1) or would the firms not consider me as a candidate?

    I've researched the partners at top firms and they all seem to have the LLB where I looked, but i'm unsure as to whether this is causal or just that not many scientists choose to go into law.

    No, not at all. Tons of people go into law after doing the GDL. It's not unusual for firms to pay for applicants' GDLs, either.

    Lots of scientists go into IP law. Of course, you can also go into anything else, but that's something that scientists are especially well suited to.
