    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

    will I be at any disadvantage over someone else who has done A-level law?

    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.

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