I've always had a thing for becoming a detective and stuff, and I've already decided to study in law school, but what subjects are required for it? Thanks in advance.

Most unis ask for subjects like physics, maths, chemistry, further maths just any subjects that are deemed tough. Most dont always require a level law

Hi i was thinking of going into the same field when i was choosing my alevels, so i picked sociology, psychology and law. They are all really interesting subjects and all have something to do with crime. I also picked these because i wanted to do a degree in criminology, which may be an option if you don't want to continue doing just law. Even though i don't want to be in the police now, this still leaves other jobs in the criminal justice system open, like now i'm thinking of a job in probation.
