Hi, I'm currently in year 11 and want to pursue a career in Law or business, ideally corporate law. I've chosen A-level English Literature (Aqa), Economics (Edexc) and Classical Civilisation (OCR). I aspire to get into a Russell Group Uni, (Cambridge would be a dream), but would they see my subjects as being rigorous enough?

there's no specific requirements for law - they usually recommend an essay subject which you have, so you'd be fine if you changed ur mind and wanted to going into business/economics instead, maybe consider adding maths ?

Your subjects are fine for Russell group or any uni but what degree do you want to do because getting a career in law or business just requires any degree.

A law/jurisprudence degree, or a business management degree. I'm aware that there are Law with business degrees, and that for law, you could do something like Human, social and political sciences and become a lawyer.

Only Oxford does a jurisprudence degree and you cant apply there if you want to go to do law at cambridge. You can go into law with an engineering degree tbh as long as you do a conversion (for barrister) and you dont need to do a conversion (thanks to SQE for solicitor)

Your subject choices are fine for applying for a law degree. Just remember that most law with business degrees aren't officially recognised by bodies for solicitors and barristers so just check that they are qualifying law degrees. Good luck
