Do law firms care which A-Levels I do?
A young wannabe lawyer needs readers’ advice
In the latest instalment in our Career Conundrums series, one solicitor hopeful is keen to know more about law firms’ attitudes towards A-Levels.
“Hello, my name is [name removed] and I aspire to be a lawyer one day. I just wanted to enquire whether law firms really care about the subjects I study at A-Level? Or are the grades the only thing they’re concerned about?”
Do firms still not recognise general studies? Is general studies still a thing? God it’s cold and my knees hurt.

Scouser of Counsel
