I know it's competitive, what about 2:1?

Where it's from is a big factor. A 2:1, from a decent university, should get you an interview.

I assume you mean to work at a law firm. The majority of people that go into law will not have a first-class degree, simply because they're not handed out often. The majority of City lawyers will have 2.1s from, mostly RG universities, but also a significant minority from others too.

As a general rule though: the better the degree you obtain, the higher your chance of securing a job.
