    Hey guys okay i have a dilemma.

    i have just completed work experience at the home office and iam so interested in the Law now and i am considereing become a lawyer, either a solicitor or barrister im leaning more towards solicitor i want to take Law and Criminology and University is this enough knowledge for me to learn to apply in the real world and is the bar Exam really hard ofc everything is hard but do you have to be academically advanced to do the bar.

    is it advisable for me to de law and criminology and then as a masters or posrtgraduate do the LLB im just really confused HELP i definitely dont want to do a pure Law degree.

    I Would just like some advice maybe from a law studnt or someone who knows about it so i can figure out whether to apply for law or crimonolgy and law at UCAS

    THANKS XXXX

    You could compromise and do a law and criminology which is an LLB?

    There's undergraduate degrees in law and criminology which are llbs so you won't have to do post-grad but you don't have to do straight law seems like the compromise for you
