What to do with conflicting career/degree interests?

I am really interested in doing something in biological sciences, but also Law (maybe as a career, but for now I am interested as an academic subject).

I do mostly science a-levels, so that's what I was always going for, but recently I've thought about wether that's something I actually want to do. I've wanted to do law in the past, and have started to become interested again. I've done some further reading (things like Letters to a law student) and watched some youtubers to get a good idea.

I don't know what career I want, but I think I could enjoy either of these degrees, not that I can really know until I start studying.

I've got a month or so to decide (if I apply early), but how do I choose between these. They're not exactly similar.

Thanks

You can always take another undergrad degree and then if you find you actually want to pursue a career in law, you can complete the GDL? I dont think it matters what degree you hold, but i would advise you research upon that just to be sure

Oh yeah I'm aware you can convert (although the GDL is actually being phased out), but I'm not sure at this point if I want to do law as a career. I'm primarily interested in it as an academic subject.
