    Do you think they will remove EU law as something most study depending on the brexit deal by time I get there?

    That is a good question, I don't believe they will remove it. Because the EU is still going to be a huge part of law, but one day, perhaps

    It's not about disliking it, it’s the fact that what you learn is distorted by the time you get to first year. It’s also regarded a “soft” subject and it would be much better to do a facilitating subject which can teach you the same skills of analysis etc

    You said Law is not as liked. Which universities would this be?

    Which universities regard it as a soft subject? Just point out on their entrance criteria which unis these are.

    You can go to any university and study Law there... If you are a student who is really good at it and has an amazing knowledge in Law then even if you go to like the 60th best uni in UK you will be better than someone who is just about making it in Oxford for example. It all depends on how good you will be at the subject.

    It is written on Trinity College, Cambridge that A-Level law is on their list of 'non-preferred' A-Levels. LSE have also made this clear on open-days and in their literature. Manchester University will accept it so long as your other 2 A-Levels are from the traditional academic list. It is widely known that is is a soft-subject; I don't need to point that out.

    Actually law is generally preferred at LSE now and even before, the policy was only on the basis that it was non preferred if you weren't doing a law degree.

    On the Trinity site it just says at least two facilitating subjects, but thats one Cambridge college compared to the hundreds of law degrees on offer. Is the OP applying to Trinity? He merely needs to satisfy the requirements of the course he is applying for. he can still do Law as his third or fourth.

    LSE its on the list of preferred subjects.

    Manchester say its fine as well.

    http://www.manchester.ac.uk/study/un...course-profile
    A-level


    Grades AAA

    Two AS levels are not accepted in place of one A level.

    We welcome all A level subjects from Arts, Humanities, Mathematics & Science, including Law. However, we do not accept General Studies or Critical Thinking.




    The vast majority of unis are perfectly fine with Law as a subject choice and the subjects that cause difficulty are General Studies, Citizenship and Critical Thinking.

    Some unis have preferred and non preferred lists, but the range is quite wide and I'd be surprised if Law was on the non preferred.

    Far more important are grades.
