    4 of my choices were for straight law at various unis, with my last choice being Anthropology and Law at LSE.

    I don't know what to do if I were to get offered both straight law and A&L at LSE- I prefer the A&L course but I'm just bit apprehensive about the reputation of the degree.

    For example, Law is a very reputable degree, keeping my options open in the future. Just wanted to know how does A&L compare to this.

    I'm not sure yet whether I want to go down the route of law as a career yet, so I am keeping my options open.

    Any insights would be appreciated.

    Cross that bridge when you get to it. You dont have the offers yet.

    work out a pros and cons of the advantages of doing the anthropology. It wouldnt prevent you following a legal career, but you would need to take some extra exams, so you would qualify a year later (assuming its a joint degree rather than an LLB. The fact it is LSE will protect you.

    Yeah I know but can’t help thinking about it loool.

    It’s a qualifying law degree so if I wanted to go into law I wouldn’t have to do extra exams I think. Just wanted to know how employers view the particular degree as opposed to straight law.

    I doubt they will care.
    Personally id prefer the extra law modules. You might get a better grade and have more fun with anthropology. You should be asking when you have the choice.
