I want to study corporate law at university and I start my a levels in September and I have picked English literature, chemistry and psychology. Are these good choices ? Do you need economics as I don’t enjoy economics and I was wondering if it is really necessary for corporate law especially and are there any other a level subjects that are recommended for corporate law or are my subjects good. Thank you.

Your first degree will be LLB Law - a general Law degree.
You can only specialise in Corporate Law at postgraduate level.

You do not need any specific A level subjects for LLB law. However, you do need high grades - so choose 3 subjects that you will enjoy, and where you are confident of getting A/A* grades. Many people find an essay-based subject helpful in terms of skills - so one of History, Eng Lit, Politics etc may be useful.

Your entire degree will just be in law, normally. As indicated you don't specialise in particular areas of law until after you graduate. There are some qualifying law degrees in e.g. law with business or similar, and you can select optional modules in corporate law/company law in your degree, but you will still need to study the full range of core law subjects and you won't really be that specialised until after you graduate. Your specialisation will come about as a product of your professional working life (i.e. working in a law firm mainly on corporate law related things) and/or through doing a specialised masters degree in the area.

This is neither here nor there, but why any young person (or old person for that matter) would want to study corporate law as an academic subject is honestly beyond my comprehension. Horses for courses eh?
