    Hi I’m currently in yr 11 (doing GCSEs) and I’m planning on doing law psychology and maths for a level, but I’m just wondering whether I’m suited for a degree in law or not. Because I hate politics and I’m not that interested in it at all. But I am interested in law... any advise? Thanks!!

    A law degree is a-political. You don't need to have a political interest to have an opinion about the law of contract.

    Honestly, to be good at law you need to be good at abstract reasoning. Are you comfortable with learning and understanding vague, seemingly trivial ideas and distinctions about bits of the law you never thought you'd be interested in?

    I've chosen to study modules (and topics) which are highly normative in nature (i.e. they're more about the big ideas than the nitty gritty of the case law), and I've rarely encountered any political stuff. There is more philosophy than I expected, but there's no assumed knowledge.
