So how do I know what universities want? Start by reading about the university, the course you want to study and the "entry profiles" as these will give you information about the type of student the university is looking for. Universities also want the truth so do not lie about your abilities and they want your writing so do not ask someone to write the personal statement for you. Some areas to cover include why you want to study this subject, what your future career plans are, what you do in your free time, what skills you have (academic and non_academic), what's interesting and/ or different about you.
4 _ Show an interest in law _ This doesn't always need to be work experience, however that is a great way to show interest. Even one week working at a local solicitors firm can do wonders for your application. You could simply enjoy reading about legal and political developments too, or maybe just really enjoyed your law AS level. Make it a legal personal statement rather than just a general personal statement.
