Okay so I'll jump right in. I am 21 and due to issues as a teenager (15-19) I currently do not possess any qualifications. I currently work as a labourer but I feel I have not lived up to my potential. I have been looking at qualifications, degrees and careers for a while now as I save money to fund them. I've narrowed it down to a few I see as things I would enjoy or maybe give me the best career progression. Law is obviously one of those paths I'm thinking of but first I need to do some research into each of these choices
I have a few questions regarding my options and pathways into the legal sector. I haven't quite decided which direction in the legal world I'd like to go but I'm guessing they all start with a degree. I have setup an appointment with a learndirect centre to take an assessment and hopefully receive my level 2s. I am pretty confident I can pass these with a little revision. After I plan on enrolling on an access to HE law diploma and then on to university for a LLB degree. So to my questions.
1.Is this the best pathway I can choose to land a job
2.If so how will my lack of GCSEs and A-levels effect my career prospects in the Legal sector. I understand that Pupilage and Training contracts are very hard to land but will they look negatively on the equivalents even if I achieve a good degree.
3.Is a Law degree even worth me taking without the aforementioned qualifications and just equivalents. Banking and Finance is also a career field I am looking at, I heard law degrees are quite respected in that sector too.
