    Law is a graduate degree in American universities. It's not offered at undergrad so you'd have to do 4 years of "college" (equivalent of university) first.

    I'm sure you have a good chance but remember they look at extracurriculars a lot and you have to take the ACT or SAT, and then the LSAT for law school.

    Thinking about applying to Harvard for undergrad (but I'm only in year 10 lmao) hope this helped 😁

    Unless you plan on staying in the US. Law is different in the US as it is to England, or Scotland, so you would have to do a conversion course before you got hired by a law firm. Unless of cours,e you ONLY want to do law at uni, in which case you'd have to read what purple whale said
