    I'm a hard working student, and will probably end up getting one A and 2 B's at A level with hard work so I'm pretty average actually, yes I would love to go a Russel group uni to do law but realistically I know there's SO much competition out there especially from people who go to grammar schools who get straight A*'s in everything, so the reality is, that I'll probably have to do Law at an average university. I've heard so many stories about people getting Law degrees from average Unis and then struggled to get a job. I don't necessarily want to be a barrister or anything, but I always thought having a ' law degree' sounds respected...even if I don't go into a job that's law related, with a law degree from an average university, is it still possible that I get a well paid job?
