    The title says it all. I'm not sure but will I require maths to read a degree in Corporate Law?

    There is no undergraduate degree in Corporate law (in the UK at least)
    To practice Corporate law... no, maths is not required

    Is the Maths you deal with in the work place difficult? I've never been much of a Mathematician , scraped a B at GCSE. The Finance/Tax etc stuff did worry me a bit. I would have a go at it but whether I'd have the capabilities is what I sometimes wonder.

    Why do you even wanna do corporate law? You clearly have very little knowledge about it based on this question, is it solely based on money?

    You do not need maths per say but then again if your generally poor with numbers reading some of the complex judgments in tax and insolvency will not be a great deal of fun. I would say you don't exactly need supreme maths skills but people might just take it for granted that you have them and throw them into the 'equation' anyway.

    That is irrelevant to the matter. Just either share your minuscule knowledge or leave.

    Corporate law is pretty tough, I'd say a passion for the potential earnings alone would not be sufficient to succeed.

    P.S I am not attempting to enter debates on what motivates the OP

    lol. We are all in accordance. How strange. Let us rejoice.

    Kagu, i don't think it helps to start confrontations on this messageboard. Believe me. a_T was only asking a question (loosely) related to your thread. What's the big deal?

    I would say that as long as you have a decent Maths GCSE you needn't worry (above C). If not: retake. AS/A level/ degree level maths isn't required nor is it, I would assume, likely to put you in better stead for corparate '''LAW'''. (nuff emphasis on the law....did any1 notice?)

    No, you definitely need A level Maths to work in corporate law. Pretty much all you do is advanced probability and calculus. Because it has 'corporate' in the name, all it is is loads of numbers flying around that you have to execute super-complex maths with. I mean, that's why they hire Law graduates isn't it? Because, you know, calculus and shizzle has loads to do with Law.

    a t: how so?

    Danny 777: you 'NEED' A level law? 'Need'. Come, come, don't be so silly.
    A level Law is not, has not, and is extremely unlikely to be a pre-requisite for Corparate law practice. Perhaps some research into the academic background of those in this field will enlighten you on this small matter. Yes no need to be competent at maths, i'm not arguing with that, perhaps even very good at maths, but taking it at A leevl does not guarantee this. Nor is it mandatory. Check facts my legal friend
