    Hi Folks

    My son who is in year 11 at school is thinking of becoming a barrister. Can you please advice which 'A' level subjects he should choose and perhaps which degree course he would be better of doing?

    Thanks in advance

    I'm pretty sure there's no specific A-level subject required to study law but most people studies essay subjects like History or English although Maths is also pretty popular as a choice. So maybe he should probably choose two essay subjects and maths or another facilitating subject.

    For the course, it's probably law. It's pretty straightforward and it's the shortest way to get into law. Although he should know that you can still get into law with another degree through the graduate diploma in law but it gets a bit complicated cause sometimes you have to move to another university.
