    I'm 13, which might be a bit early to start thinking about careers, but I would like to pursue a career in law.

    I am a high achiver, and my best subjects are English, History, French and Welsh (my first language)

    However, I suffer from OCD, and I'm a perfectionist. Is this suited to a law career?

    What grades in GCSE and A level would be needed? And, out if intrest, how much pay do you get? Are there any subjects you should choose that are useful? What kind of person is best suited to a law career?
    Thanks

    Don't let OCD hold you back. Being a perfectionist can help as lawyers need attention to detail. They also need to be pragmatic and sometimes a practical approach wins out over detail.

    Just do the subjects you enjoy and want to do. Try and get your best results.

    Keep an open mind. Read the papers if you are interested and start learning about law that way. Start to see how the law plays a role in many aspects of our society

    in regards to pay, it's a very very wide field. Depends on what law you practise and for who. So a tax barrister is going to earn more than a high street lawyer dependant on legal aid

    It's impressive that you are engaging so early. Bests thing to do is try and get your beast results as this will set you up whatever you decide to do 😄
