Hey, I've seen that medicine has it's own thread but couldn't find one for law, so here it is!
I'm going to list some questions as a template to start us all off:
1) what are your GCSEs?
2) what do you study at A-level and what are you predicted?
3) why law?
4) why at Cambridge?
5) do you know what college you want to apply to?
6) what have you done outside of your studies to make your application stronger?

Hopefully there will be a few of us to get involved!

Hi,
1) 8,8,7,7,7,7,7,distinction and a 5.
2) law , history and psychology a level . I’m predicated all A’s but I’m hoping to get A* in law.
3) I really enjoy the alevel and I love watching documentaries surrounding our legal system and the issue within it . Also I love debating and like things to fair And just . (Only a couple of reasons but I could end up writing an essay why I love law).
4) why not? It’s one of the best universities in the world , with beautiful campuses and the law degree looks varied and interesting.
5)I’m thinking of Newham at the minute.
6) I am a student ambassador for law a level in my college, participated in debate club, gone on a work experience day, taken part in mooting and done an online workshop about careers into law.

Wow, you're prepared then, huh? How do you feel about the application process that's looming ahead of us?!

Also, is there any particular aspect of law you're drawn to??

Hi, umm yeah I felt the need to do quite a lot of extracurricular to make up for my gcse grades as a lot of people usually have all 8/9’s.

The application process is kinda freaking me out ngl, it just seems very scary to make a ps with no help from my college atm . Though to be honest, I think the interview and Cambridge law test don’t seem to scary after doing some research around them.

Well from year 11, I always wanted to do criminal law but I’ve realised there are so many different types of law which are really interesting too. So I am still very drawn to criminal law but also international, human rights and immigration law now.

How do you find law alevel? I think it’s really interesting and definitely confirmed my belief that I want to do law in the future. Also , maths and English a bit of a mix. why did you chose to do them?

I really enjoy it! I'm the same as you!

I get this quite a lot haha, I chose English for obvious reasons relating to law, and maths just because I liked it. I have since realised how the skills in it can be applied to law though!

1)8,8,8,8,8,7,7,7,6,B
2) I'm doing Maths, History and Politics. Haven't got my predicted grades yet but probably A*AA
3) The law just fascinates me, I love films like legally blonde lol and although they're not all that accurate they still got me really interested. I also like the more humanitarian side of helping people get justice.
4) it has my favourite course, and I went on a trip there and loved the atmosphere. The tutorial things are also a pretty neat idea.
5) no idea, id just be happy to get in tbh
6) I'm doing an EPQ related to law, entered an essay competitions, an online course and over the summer I plan on doing a lot of reading

1) 8888888766
2) Physics, History and Maths and I was predicted a AAA (but I don’t think I’ll get it tbh)
3) I just really enjoy it, especially reading about it and doing my own personal research on different areas
4) I’m not sure if I want to go to Cambridge but it is an option. I liked their teaching system and modules they offer
5) idk yet but trinity is one of them
6) Non-related law: I’ve done different types of volunteering. Related to law: I’ve done essay comps that I enjoyed but I don’t think I’ll do anymore because I don’t like any of the questions for the future ones; I’m doing an epq relating to law; I’ve read some books and I’m planning to read more; I’m currently doing a law programme from Durham.

How about you?

The Robert Walker one had a really interesting question which was nice to research, and it was the first time I did a proper researched essay with footnotes and bibliography which was good to practice. How did yours go?
I'm torn between the racial discrimination and women rights questions for the John Locke essay

I think I'm probably going to do the women's rights one, I dont really know how I'd approach the others tbh
