    I am currently in year 12 and have my sights set on becoming a lawyer in the future.
    However I have been told by people who studied law in University that it is long, boring and difficult. Although I understand that this is just the opinion of a few, I have heard of other options.

    One of my teachers mentioned that I could do a course in any subject and then do a conversion course to law. She says it is a very good idea as if you pick a subject you are really passionate about, you are more likely to do well in it. I really enjoy philosophy and ethics so may choose a course in those subjects.

    I was wondering what the pros and cons of choosing a conversion course to law vs just doing the full 3 year law course at university is.

    Also I have my eyes set on big universities like Cambridge and LSE and was wondering if a conversion course is supplied by the best universities in the UK.

    Finally, I am also wondering if I do a conversion course, will I be at a disadvantage to people who have done a full law course when getting a job in law in the future.

    Thanks for any help you can give.
