Hi

I know lots of ppl recommend history and English at a level to do law but there are no official requirements for this as such. Would you be all right doing 2 humanities (politics and philosophy say) and a MFL?

Thanks for your help

I see no problems with your A level choices.

Politics is great. It enhances your analytical and problem-solving skills, stands as a solid essay-writing subject and gives you good awareness of the political context surrounding law systems.
Languages is solid. It might not look very interlinked at first glance, but it will be considered an asset that many other students do not have, completely excluding the fact it gives you a good foundation for international work with global firms. You can also continue your involvement in your language through uni societies or extra curricular courses.
Philosophy won't put you at any disadvantage. It helps with your problem-solving skills and communication, as well as being another supporting essay subject.

At the end of the day, what matters is that you enjoy the subjects you are taking enough to dedicate time and energy, and get the grades you need.

If you want to English Law, there's no A level subject requirements with sometimes a preferred in an essay subject (but not needed) - so you can do 3 STEM subjects and do law. If it's Scottish law, you need one essay subject. You dont need English or History - Just choose the ones you like. I chose History, Maths and Physics so go for it. They are great A levels and a good combination

Hi spacegirl3

As you've said there are no specific A levels required for Law, so your choices would be fine. The main thing is if you enjoy them and think you can do well in them as uni's will mainly look at the grades you achieved.
