Studying for a degree in law is invigorating, fascinating, and highly rewarding...

… and once you have obtained your qualifications, working in the sector is just the same. Whether you dream of pursuing a career as a barrister, paralegal, solicitor or another legal profession, you will be setting yourself on a path towards a truly exciting future when you make the decision to study law at university.  

However, due to the intense nature of working in law, gaining a place at university to study the subject can be particularly challenging.

In fact, law is known for being a prestigious and intellectually demanding subject of study, requiring the applicant to devote much of their time to reading, research and essay writing throughout the course of their degree.

What’s more, depending on the university of choice, the ideal applicant will be expected to have a strong academic background and possess several different qualities and skills, such as good independent and group working skills, research skills, and above all, a thirst for knowledge.
