    You can, of course, it just depends what universities you apply to in year 13 and if you meet their entry requirements for law, have a look at their websites

    Yep, there's tons of routes into being a lawyer. Are you thinking of studying Law at uni? You'd get into many unis with BBB and they often just ask for some traditional subjects (English Lit/Lang would put you in a good place)

    Alternatively, you could do any degree and then do a conversion course to qualify as a lawyer

    I dont think it matters what college you attend its mainly about your academics and non academic achievements. Also every subject that you take is respected if you get a high grade in it tbh. My friend got into law, and she did english lit, socio, and politics with an unconditional offer. So it doesnt matter what subject you took, (unless the uni wants one or two certain subject such as english lit/lang but other than that it doesnt matter!!)
    Its the grades that matter!!! Work hard and achieve your goals you should be fine!

    Your college won't matter, it's the grades you get out of it that do. The only thing they might be able to help you with is giving a good reference.

    Have a look on the websites of the unis you're considering and look at their entry requirements, it's all available online
