I want to apply to LSE. I have 3 years of work experience in India. Is it better to submit two academic references or one professional and one academic?

@ chicken soup: My professors from law school will most definitely give me stronger recommendations. But is it okay to NOT give a professional reference despite having work experience?

From the LSE website:

You should arrange to supply two academic references (from tutors who have taught you at university) as part of the online process. This is a secure and confidential service for referees and helps speed up the decision-making process. You should use your referee’s academic (university) email address when requesting a reference.

Current students and applicants who graduated from their most recent study after January 2016 must supply two academic references. References should be from a teaching member of your current (or, if you have graduated, from your most recent) university department.

Applicants who graduated from their most recent study before January 2016 may supply one non-academic reference in place of one of your academic references. This should normally be a reference from your most recent employer (see our guidance for professional references).

Applicants who graduated from their most recent study before January 2014 may supply two professional references if they are unable to provide academic references. It is in your interests to supply academic references wherever possible.

I'm not sure they could possibly be any clearer.
