A-Level choices for a future in LawWatch
The most important thing is mega-high grades - so choose subjects where you feel the most confident of achieving this
won't work experience be more time consuming than taking it as a subject even if it's just for a year. plus A-levels are very hard especially with a job I know several people who have had to stop working because it's all too much
A week shadowing a solicitor, some afternoons sat in the public gallery at the local court, some relevant voluntary work etc. That is what is meant by 'work experience'. Without that work experience, and the ability to reflect on that in your PS, an application for Law is unlikely to be successful.
Even if it was offered for OP, it's best they not take it. Most unis advise to avoid taking A Level Law if you are thinking about a Law degree.
Most are clear that it's no advantage or disadvantage (and will prefer it taken with more traditional subjects) - I've never found a university that actively advised against it but I'm always happy to be corrected.
8% of LSE entrants for Law have A level Law (which has it on its list of "non-preferred subjects" that should be accompanied by 2 traditional subjects)
6% of UCL entrants (which has it on its list of preferred subjects)
6% of Oxford
12% of Durham
It's not the most common subject (but given that most entrants to many of these courses are from private schools where Law A level isn't offered that's not surprising).
