I think the court one was a good idea - it can be very difficult but I suppose not impossible to get jobs in trad legal field without experience - the usual catch 22 thing -
perhaps have a little look at jobs go public site and charity jobs site - may be something that catches your eye - also this
Dont hate me - it is too late to apply for it but it might give you another way of thinking - you dont say what you do in the motor trade but is there any sideways move you can make or any contacts you can exploit?
It is a good idea you have though, so good luck with it

A little premature, perhaps, but I am considering doing a three year evening course in LLB Law at Birkbeck in September 2016. I am currently working full-time and am thinking of continuing to do so, hence doing the evening course rather than a conventional daytime degree.
I currently work in an unrelated industry (the motor trade) earning about £40,000 per year, but would my hours are long (8 - 6 and 1 in 3 Saturdays), so a 9 - 5 would suit me better, as would working in the legal field. I know that my salary will likely halve, but anything is better than nothing when it comes to working AND studying a degree.
So my question is, what roles would I be eligible for as someone with an academic interest in law but no legal background? Evidently this would be in and around London if I were to study at Birkbeck as planned.
Thanks for your advice in advance.
