Hi Alice, we don't expect any knowledge of the law itself from non-law students. However, it is really important that you have thought about why you want to be a lawyer and have specific reasons which are personal to you. We want to see people with a genuine interest.
It can be hard to work this out as a non-law student, but I would recommend reading articles in publications like the FT and Economist and picking out the analysis of the legal issues which arise. Once you've done that, you should be able to look at any piece of news or event and think through the potential legal issues which might arise. You can do that without any actual legal knowledge, because it's more about problem spotting and solving.
I've answered a similar thread with Olha, so you might want to have a look at that too.
Thank you that makes sense! This chat is really helpful.
