    A couple of the London Russel Group universities offer the chance to complete your first two years in London and graduate with an LLB and then spend a further two years in the USA for a JD. I'm not sure if this is what you are interested in but there are two caveats. First, and most importantly, you need to be incredibly wealthy to be able to pursue this as there is no funding available (so tuition plus living expenses each year in the States will be around £80,000). Second, you have to come pretty much top in your year group in your first year exam results to be considered.

    Sheffield uni do. The degree is LLB Law (European & International). There's loads of places you can go all over the world but the American link is Wisconsin. No fees paid to them just half fees to Sheffield!

    Glasgow uni do. Only catch is you need a lot more money than doing a year abroad in Europe, as you don't get anywhere near the same level of funding towards your living costs. You only need to pay the fees you would pay to Glasgow anyway (even if thats nothing), so you basically (as far as I know) need to be able to fund your flights and living costs. Think there's a couple different places within the US that you can choose to go.

    Thanks all for your answers but most unis mentioned've got high entry requirements I dont think I'm meeting. Surrey and Sheffield may do though. Cheers, appreciate your answers and if sb has to suggest any more you're more than welcome to do so
