Picking A-Levels

Your A-Levels are your first opportunity to take control of your studies. A bad choice here shouldn’t be fatal but there are some things to watch out for.

Choosing a University

There’s more to choosing a University than looking at where your friends are going and so we look at the criteria you should be considering when choosing a Uni to study law.

The Law Degree

We explain the Qualifying Law Degree (LLB), including the 7 core subjects, the structure of the course and what to look for when choosing different degrees.

The Personal Statement

Your personal statement is one of the most important parts of your UCAS application and all universities take it seriously. Find out what should be in yours.

The LNAT

The Law National Aptitude Test (LNAT) is used by some Uni’s as an entrance exam. Find out who uses it, how it works and what it takes to do well.

Legal Apprenticeships

Most lawyers go to university, but it isn’t the only way in. We look at an alternative route and try to help you decide if it’s for you.
