Do A Level choices really matter for what law you would like to go into?

I was just wondering if you had to pick specific a levels for certain law degrees as I have picked Politics, English Lit and Psychology so would I be able to pursue degrees such as corporate law, solicitor or even environmental law, would I need to do economics at a level to be a solicitor or not. Do my a level matter for this? Or am I restricted to certain law degrees.

Law degrees do not require any specific A levels subjects. So pick 3 subjects you will enjoy and where you feel confident of high grades. The initial Law degree in LLB Law. You only specialise at graduate level, and by that stage your first degree will matter far more than what you did in Y13.

Hi @Hoosam,

Thanks for your question, no there are no specific subject requirements at A-level to study law at university. Like @McGinger said its better to stick with whatever you enjoy so that you can have a better chance at getting the grades you need to meet the entry requirements. Even if you do study something which will seem relevant to law you'll find that it doesn't really make a difference in the end because you'll be prepared with the basics from the first year of your degree anyway.

I hope that helps, if you have any other questions about studying law at uni or A-levels please let me know.
