"The law is the public conscience."

-Thomas Hobbes

If you want to become part of an age-old institution that imposes order on human behaviour and stabilises society, or you just fancy studying what Gandhi studied, then you might want to consider a university degree in law. The LLB degree can be studied on its own, or joint with another subject like a modern foreign language.

As you might expect, studying law requires a great deal of reading and writing. If you need a whetstone to sharpen your pen against, look no further than Marked by Teachers' collection of law essays. Reading the worked examples will speed your learning process, teaching you how to consistently construct strong arguments and essays.

Students of law usually go on to further study and careers in law, but they're also well equipped to enter other fields, including politics, consulting,finance and management.
