    I really want to get into a good university for law but i took 2 years out to work after doing a diploma in computer engineering( i did quite well . 3.94 GPA out of 4) . My contract with my present employer only ends in November. I did not do A levels but is there a pathway which would lead me to getting a law degree at a top university ?
    I was pondering on a foundation in law but was given to understand that not many qualify to enter the undergraduate law program even after doing foundation in law. Is there any truth to this?

    Law degrees are very competitive to get on. You are bets off researching the unis you wnat to go to and looking at their foundation program. you stand the best chance of jumping onto an LLN at the place where you do the foundation. You might wnat to look into some of the 4 year LLB courses. Whether or not they will waive A levels I dont know. If you gopt on thogh you woldnt have to bother about getting on the LLB because you would already be on it.

    I did notitce tha most of the foundation law are by colleges and id be wary that they were ood enough to then take it to a good university.

    It's mostly colleges that do foundations so i'd think checking them out would be your best bet.
    Law degrees are incredibly competitive and top uni's are very picky when it comes to who they allow on their course.
