Record numbers accepted onto law courses

University admissions statistics have revealed that more students than ever before have been accepted onto law courses. The provisional figures published by admissions service UCAS showed that no fewer than 18,394 applicants have now had a place confirmed at university or college to study law this year, an overall increase of 1.2 per cent since 2008. This makes law the most popular subject for students entering further education yet again. The statistics will further concern the Law Society, which earlier this year launched a campaign to warn students to think twice about embarking on a career as a lawyer.
