You will receive help from your sixth form or college with your UCAS law application – however, it’s a good idea to familiarise yourself with the process beforehand.
Your UCAS law application will include your personal details, grades, a personal statement and a teacher’s reference.
See our step-by-step guide to applying to UCAS for Law below:
The UCAS law deadline is January, and applications can be submitted from early September.
However, if you’re applying to study law at Oxford or Cambridge you’ll need to submit your application in October.
You will need to score a specific number of UCAS points for each of the law courses you apply to.
You can calculate your UCAS points using the table below.
|A Level Grade||UCAS Points|
|AS Level Grade||UCAS Points|
If you’re submitting your UCAS law application after the deadline, there’s still a chance you can get a place at university. This is because some universities will accept applications up until as late as June at their discretion. If you are applying to university after June, you will have to do so through clearing.
If you’re applying to study law at Cambridge, you’ll need to take the Cambridge Law Test. Some universities also require you to sit the LNAT before you apply – below is a table of the universities that require the LNAT.
UK LNAT Universities
University of Bristol
University of Glasgow
Kings College London (KCL)
LSE London School of Economics and Political Science
University of Nottingham
University of Oxford
UCL Faculty of Laws
Make sure you remember to check the deadlines for the Cambridge Law Test and the LNAT beforehand. If you’re sitting the LNAT, you’ll need to sit the test by January, whereas for Oxford you’ll need to sit it by October – so check the deadlines in advance! You can find more information on the Cambridge Law Test on our Law at Oxbridge page.
