I’m thinking of doing Law in university, just wondering, is Law and Politics are completely different? because I wasn’t really fond of Government and Politics A level but I have a profound interest in Law?

I would say that when studying law or writing a Law essay for instance, what can get you the first, or take you a little higher than your peers, is thinking about the political climate around a legislation. It sometimes helps you better understand why the law was made in the way that it was or what it sort to control. That said, politics is distinct from Law; and you do find that you have to deal with governments in a different way in both. There are some fields of Law where politics is a huge influence like public law, or international public law or human rights law. Asides that, you can look at Law without needed to worry a great deal about whether you liked politics or not; or a huge chunk about politics in general.

Law and Government & Politics are like cousins; they share enough commonalities to remain related and enough differences to remain unique unto themselves. There’s very little politics in Law but a significant amount of it is related to government and democracy. In referring back to our analogy, all of these subjects belong to one family and just as you may like some members of the extended family over others, it’s important to keep in touch with them all. In short, it’s fine.
