Hi, I want to go an study Law at a university and want to make sure the A-levels I have taken are good enough to get into a good uni on a Law course.
I have taken,
Enlgish lit
History
Sociology
I didn't take a-level law because I was told you don't actually need it, is this true and are my A-levels good enough?
Thanks

English Literature and History are great for a Law degree, and Sociology is also relevant, so your A Level subjects are fine. Also, it's true that A Level Law isn't needed for a Law degree

Definitely not.. in fact I've heard A level law is a soft subject? I'm not sure this isn't based on any facts.

Your subjects are great.

Your a levels are fine, perhaps you may want to consider a fourth subject e.g. Maths, economics, politics etc but it doesnt matter that much.

From these articles don't think you will be and it may give you more options if you change your mind/ something doesnt work out/ you change careers etc

I highly doubt it, as no universities require A Level Law for Law degrees, and many don't even encourage applicants to take it
