I like these subjects equally, and i've been trying to make a decision for ages now and my brain is starting to hurt. I just really want to know which subject has better graduate prospects and if any of you have done either law or politics at uni can you share your experience with me please

Why not do a joint honours or maybe a law degree with politics?

Yeah sorry i'm really jet lagged i travelled halfway accross the world haha. I just know i can't do a joint honours and i have to choose one of them. I'm trying to place myself in the shoes of an employer: would i rather have a politics grad or a law grad working for me

Iy makes littel difference. Where you studied and class of dehree, then how you interview will matter more. Law I would think is more useful, but its not going to matter that much to an employer.

If you want to practice law there's no need to do the LLB as you can do a conversion from politics later. That being saaid politics at degree is NOTHING like alevel or lower its great deal more about philosophy than the practical or real side [so boring, trust me i did it for a BSc] Law equally is a lot of philosophy and a huge amount of reading and memorising archane legal precedents. Basically both require a lot of reading but pol seems to offer a bigger upside[marginally] at least its not quite as common as law, those degrees are a dime dozen.
