Law personal statement international student - Literature

    • Thread Starter

    I want to include The Prince by Machiavelli, The Republic by Plato and another book that talks about the opportunitys that a law degree offers.

    Is that enough or should I include other books in my personal statement?
    Or is that enough ?

    I want to apply for law at Oxford, LSE Kings and UCL btw.

    There's no 'enough' really. The point is to get across what you're interested in, in a way that's convincing and reasonably distinctive.

    A PS saying something interesting and relevant and The Prince, The Republic, and a book about the opportunities of a law degree ('What About Law?' perhaps...?) sounds great. You don't need to go searching for other things to mention.

    I wouldn't put any of them in. I'd just talk about why you want to do law.
