Okay, so I have decided to return to university after previously dropping out of my course (for a number of various reasons). One of which was that i decided i wanted to study law rather than history.
However, my main concern at the moment is that i will be unable to obtain any work experience or find a job once they find out that I previously dropped out of a degree.
I’m just wondering wether this is something that I would be able to ‘hide’ or bury in my application, and wether it would have a significant impact. Will it limit my ability to get work experience? Or block me from working at top firms?
I would appreciate any insight.

You wouldn't be able to bury it. You could mitigate it by going above and beyond though. Short of being exceptional this time around, firms are going to see it as a pretty big red flag.
