Of course it will be much more difficult, but how does studying it differ? For me, AS law has been memorising a bunch of information and then vomiting it back onto an exam paper. I presume an LLB would be greatly different...

I found A-levels intellectually harder than my course BUT I have to memorise LOADS for my course (its basically a course of rote learning for 5 years! - not law, btw)

so its hard in a different way

But I'm sure my course is similar to yours in terms of what we have to do to get good grades (mostly)

For Law, it is a greater amount of information that has to be understood and learned in a much smaller time frame.

I never took AS law (I'm Scottish and we cannot study law in school), so I cannot compare. But, if I compare to my highers, i would say the amount to learn for 1 10 credit subject is the equivalent of 2-3 highers, depending on the subject.
