    Or would it make more sense to do law? I don't know what I actually want to do yet but I find religious studies really interested and would possibly want a career writing / lecturing on it but at the same time it would be really hard to get a job in that field and it would be much safer to just do law. I am a little interested in Law but would prefer to do rs.

    there is no way you can be a lawyer with a religious studies degree. Law is a really intense course with hundreds of legislation as well as compulsory units on EU law etc. a major-minor degree might help you fulfil both but you need to do Law degree to become a Lawyer.

    I would recommend doing what you truly find interesting. Even if you don't know what the job prospects are. I used to want to do Law, I did a law unit for my current course and I absolutely hated it because it was so boring.

    You don't need a law degree to become a lawyer. Currently you can take a one-year GDL, after your degree, that will teach you the basics. Many people a year do it; even theologians.

    And fair enough. Might be the module you did was superficial box-tick law, probably in business, and by nature is going to be boring. I would suggest that a theologian reads drier texts than the law student.
