  • I am hoping to study law at university but i would like some adivce on my a levels. I'm thinking of taking Eng Lit, Maths, Psychology and Government+Politics. Do you think these are okay?

    Also, i have recently writen to about 10 different companies asking for work experience but all of them have turned me down, do i keep trying or is there a special thing they are looking for?

  • Hi, my name is Michaela, although I am only in year 8 I have my options and GCSEs soon and I was wandering if they subjects I choose for my options and my grades in my GCSEs will have an effect on my chances of being a lawyer. Or is it only really the A-levels that matter? I know I'm a bit young to be worrying about this yet I feel that if I know this I won't be too worried about it once everything is in place. I thought for my options :
    English
    Maths
    Science
    Because I have to do them anyway
    Then
    History
    Ict
    Business studies
    Law
    Though I don't know if I can choose business studies and law for my options?
    If you could help I would be so grateful??

  • I am looking at returning to law despite a fairly large gap (6 years) since I graduated from a Scottish University with an LLB. Do you have any advice on where I should look to start back in the process to qualifying as a solicitor? I am flexible between qualifying in Scotland or England.
    Thank you

  • Hello,
    I am 17 and am currently living in France and will be sitting the baccalaureate next year, so I am fluent in french. I am looking to have a career in law in the future, however I would like to know if there are any 'sectors' in law in which I could practice law and French, with English remaining my primary language.

    Thanks.

  • Hi, I have been offered a training contract at a firm specialising in property, PI, and Wills, but I initially wanted to work in the criminal field. I know how hard it is to get a TC, but I was wondering whether or not after completing my training contract I could still somehow in the future become a criminal lawyer, or will i have to stick to being a PI lawyer? Thanks
