  • hey there anon, good luck with the whole selection process

    i have posted a link from the times online university guide, of course it would be wrong to base ur entire decision on the rank on the university you are enquiring about, but nevertheless i guess it can give you some idea of the nature of the law course on offer at the particular university

  • I am currently working as a legal secretary in a large law firm. In February I will begin my law degree. As I have to work full time the only option for me was to do a degree through Open University. What do people working in the law think of the degrees that Open University offer. Will this be looked at as a poor degree.

  • Hello, i have a big passion about being a barrister one day. i even left my psychology studies in brussels and came to wales, study in law currently. and as i study, everyday my desire to be "a barrister" becomes stronger and stronger. but then i must confess that "being a non-uk citizen" might be a problem which can close my waY to the Bar. i really want to practice advocacy in UK. even if i m aot a uk citizen, can i still apply a puppilage and later called from the Bar ? :( is there a criterion such as citizenship in Bar? I ve looked at the equality and diversity code too, however i didn t find an answer on "citizenship criterion".. can any reliable source inform me about this? many thanks

  • I'm currently in the middle of my fourth year reading law at a university in Sweden. I'm originally from the UK and will be moving back there in the near future, I'm curious to know if I stand a chance of getting employment with law firms in London. Is there anybody that has, or knows of somebody else, who is or has been in a similar situation? Thanks in advance.

  • O -

    Edinburgh University only offers a Scots law LLB, not English law. I think Dundee University offers both.

    If you want to go to Edinburgh but practice in England, best off qualifying in Scotland then taking the relevant exams whilst working to make yourself dual qualified.
    Easy to move between the two whilst working - depending on what sort of work you do i.e. corporate is basically the same across Britain, but criminal/ property is different.

    Basically if you want to work as a lawyer in England you'd be better off doing an English law LLB - if you do Scots law you should stay in Scotland until qualified.

    Maya if you want to practice abroad - solicitor (no idea about Turkish law requirements - I can't imagine it'd be easy though). Do you understand the differences between being a barrister and solicitor? There are plenty of articles on The Lawyer highlighting differences.
