Before studying law at any university, there are some things which you need to know, like your subject combinations for your JAMB and WAEC.

Many students joke with this. Do you know that if you do not have the right subject combination, there will be no admission for you. Now, let me break it to you here, if an aspiring law student takes up subjects in school like Mathematics and English, which is compulsory and picks up others to compliment it, he/she must choose the right combination.

Filling in the wrong subject limits you from gaining admission into the university. Even if you score the highest, your chances of gaining admission are very slim, which is not even certain at all.

To study Law, there are WAEC and UTME subjects-combinations that must be employed. In this article, ‘JAMB Subject Combination For Law And WAEC Subjects Required For Law’, subjects-combination for the WAEC and UTME exam of a Law aspirant, are provided. Afterward, we will go ahead to provide a list of universities where this course can be studied. Furthermore, this article will be incomplete, if we do not take a look at some great legal practitioners in the country (late and present).
