Law is very competitive, you will need to show strong academic performance and demonstrable people skills; empathy, decision-making and more.

Understanding and reflecting on the role of a lawyer is vital. You will show this through your personal statement and interviews, and you will need good insights- especially those gained via work experience. This experience needs to be gained before the final year of college, so you can write about it in your UCAS Personal Statement


Remember: check for additional Admissions Test requirements.

Each university will have it's own perspective and policies. You should research extensively on the university's website who you are applying to, to find out their own tailored advice for applying.
