  • Hi
    I gained an unconditional offer to read law at uni but haven't got my A level results back but feel that i screwed them up pretty badly and may not make the 3 As that I need! Therefore, I've been looking into alternative first undergrad degrees so that i can transfer into law later. I was just wondering if anyone had information on first degrees that are favoured by pupillages? I'm considering a sociology route of some sort but wanted to know if it would be looked down on by firms when applying for pupillages? PLEASE HELP thank you!!

  • I have just graduated from an english and history Ba course at the university of Liverpool, I was awarded a 2:1. I am about to embark on a masters course in Cultural History at the same university. I have been looking at law postgrad courses at a variety of universities. I'm also looking for experience at law firms in Liverpool that I can take on while I study. Aside from this what can I do to be successful in obtaining a place on a law course and then getting into a law firm afterwards. Any helpful suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Many Thanks.

  • Hi, I have to choose my A-level options at school soon and was wondering if there are any that are good to take? We only have 4 options and I think I'm going to study law, sociology, english and RE. Are these any good?

  • I am currently applying for sixth forms and am unsure about which subjects I should take at a-level. I would like to be a barrister and do a law degree, preferably at one of the universities in the russell group. I am definitely doing english lit and history, but am unsure about the other two. Do you have to do a language at a-level? I am predicted an A at GCSE in French, however, I absolutely despise it and am not passionate about it in the slightest. But if it will put me above others in regards to getting a job and getting into a university should I consider it? My application deadlines for the colleges are next week, so I need an answer quite quickly. A list of preferred subjects at a-level to enable me to do law would be great?

    Thank you!
