    I would like to be a lawyer and thinking of doing english lit and history A level. Politcs would work well with these 2 and would be good for going on to study law at uni. But I would like to hear some opinions on the subject and I was wondering what kind of person you should be to do it.

    Politics was my favourite A Level, which I also did with Lit and History. If you have any interest in how the world works then you'll love it. I knew little about politics before, now I'm pursuing a degree and career in it! But FYI you can do pretty much any A Levels for law as long as they're fairly academic.

    I did those 3 subjects but really didn't enjoy politics, I felt it was boring and kind of like history in the sense I was just memorising stats from past elections and so ended up dropping it but I'm sure it gets better as the course progresses I'm just to lazy

    Thankyou, I'm thinking about it but I'm worried it won't suit me?

    You are correct at AS it is like that. But at A2 I did political philosophy/ideologies which made me love it.

    It's pretty academic, and quite transferable to law. I know a few people who took law and politics, and now study international law at uni.
