Law degrees are rewarding but also challenging. So, when you're considering law at uni, it helps to hear from the experts.
In this section of The Student Room, we've worked alongside staff and students from The University of Law to create a knowledge bank on studying law at university.
Alongside tips for undergrad law degree applicants, we have advice for those considering postgrad law, articles on barrister and solicitor opportunities - as well as a look at some subjects connected with law such as criminology and policing.
