    Hi,
    I'm probably going to be doing Law at university, if not Law, Latin and Greek, and wanted to know if there was any sort of work experience I should be doing. I know about going to a firm (obviously) and that's sorted, I have also written to our local mp about working in the constituency office. But is there anything else I should be doing?
    Thank you.

    That's more than enough. Work experience is not at all necessary to make a successful law application. Tutors are looking to see if you have an interest in the academic side of law, which is what you will be studying at university.

    You could make an equally, if not stronger, impact in your personal statement if you talked about cases and law-related books you've read and how they have contributed towards developing your interest in legal academia.
