    Just received an Unconditional offer for Law with Business Studies at Birmingham!
    Finally some news from somewhere after waiting soooooo long!

    LNAT: 28
    Hey I scored 28 on the LNAT too, and you're probably the only other person I've seen on here who has applied for that course. I applied for Warwick's Law and Business Studies degree as well as Birmingham's and received offers for both awhile back, but I'm still rather hesitant about going for either. I'm considering emailing them to request for a transfer to the pure LLB degree, as I'm doubtful as to whether I can become a practising lawyer with a combined/dual law degree.

    I'm interested in learning about business as well as law, but is this course considered as two qualifying degrees for both business and law?

    If anyone knows anything about this subject please do enlighten!

    Currently, you HAVE to have an LLB law to begin practising as a lawyer (after lpc/pupillage post grad).

    However, the SRA are examining the LLB and it may in a few years time no longer be considered a qualifying law degree and require further training. So look into that, and if that's the case there's no difference between BA and LLB as law degrees for lawyers/solicitors as both have to do further examinations post grad.

    Not really. You can study any degree and then top it with the GDL, which makes it equal to the LLB.

    True, but why study law and business to then do another conversion course of law for a 4 year, more expensive course?

    Taking the 3 year LLB is the better, cheaper option.

    The Law and Business course can be qualifying if s/he picks the subjects required.

    Law isn't 'lenient' - they don't need to be. They will have people with the right grades (and higher) queuing up for a place in Adjustment, so they don't need to be kind to anyone who misses their offer. Yes, sometimes your grades might be accepted - but you cannot rely on this. If you genuinely think you wont get the grades required don't have this as your Firm. If you do get amazing grades in August, then you can reapply next year with known grades - far, far safer.

    No Uni will tell you at this stage that they will accept alternative grades - a) they will look like a softtouch who don't take their own offers seriously and b) they have no idea how many people will fulfil their offers come August., so no idea how many 'near misses' (if any) they might accept.
    The reason I asked was because Nottingham are giving out offers lower then their standard offer so surely they must not meet requirements every year and can therefore afford to be flexible when it comes to results day. That being said if i were to marginally miss the grades do you think they would perhaps be lenient as they are already giving out offers for AAA on an A*AA course before exams and results have even been sat and collected.
    And with regard to adjustment and clearing Nottingham for law have never participated in it in a good many years so I doubt that they would be accepting candidates from such avenues.

    All Universities give 'Contextual Offers', lower offers for those from low performing schools, as part of their widening participation commitment. This doesn't mean they will accept lower grades from everyone else on Results Day.

    Not all of those with lower offers are due to the widening participation scheme... Many come from above average backgrounds

    It's a bit strange. My son got 7A* and4A's at GCSE even though his dad died in the middle of them . He also got 31 in the LNAT and had an offer two weeks after the email so he must have been a good applicant. Offer was A*AA.
