There has always been a myth that studying A Level Law will prevent you from studying it at university, however this is not true. To dispel these rumours, it is worth considering the view of University of Cambridge: “While we are aware of the perception by some that studying Law at A Level might be considered a ‘negative’, we are somewhat puzzled by this. So, taking Law as an A Level subject does not put students at a disadvantage for admission to read Law at Cambridge, nor does it provide an advantage”.
