    So i'm 19 (scotland) and don't have the necessary qualifications from school to get straight into a university let alone law and need to know what my best option would be. Would appreciate no answers saying its impossible because it's something I know I'd be very good at and have a passion for and I will make it one way or another but need a starting point.

    Access Course (if they have them in Scotland?) would probably be the most direct route. Depending on financial constraints you may want to consider trying to get some work in a Law office - not necessarily legal, administrative work would still give you an idea of the nature of working in the area. On the legal side though you may be able to find a paralegal apprenticeship or similar which might be relevant.
