    Hi, I have just graduated from a prestigious university. I have started LLB Law, however due to some serious personal problems I have failed from one of my subjects in the first year. (even in the re-sit exams).

    The University then transferred me to a course called LLB in Legal Studies. It was the same as the LLB Law with same lectures, exams etc. but it did not count as a qualifying law degree.

    I graduated with 2.2 last week and applied to some universities for the course of LLM International Corporate Finance. I intend to work full-time and study part-time.

    All universities ask for 2.1 and it is such a disappointment for me. As I have always got higher grades before except this time.

    I am thinking to get reference letters from my personal tutor and also from psychologists.

    What should be my next step? I want to practice law in the future as a solicitor but they all ask for a qualifying law degree.

    please help

    That's because you cannot be a solicitor without a qualifying law degree - hence the word 'qualifying'. If you want to be a solicitor you will either need to do a law degree again, or do the GDL.
