Can I have a review on how the course 2 year law intensive went?
Do not even consider the University of Law as a place to study an LLB. It is relatively new course and ULaw are well regarded because of their GDL and LPC, not the LLB. Pretty much everyone who does the LPC or GDL there will have gone to a proper and good university for their undergad. If you have/will have good grades (AAB or above at A level) and good GCSEs, go for a Russell Group uni or Oxbridge if you are good enough. Law is an extremely competitive profession, and where you studied at university matters so so much. You need to go to Oxbridge or a Russell Group uni to have a realistic chance of going into the legal profession if that is what you aspire to ultimately do.

My friend studied a 2 year (accelerated) LLB at the University of Law despite having AAB at A level and despite getting a high 2;1, has no legal work experience, and is doing the LPC but has no training contract. If you can go to a RG uni or Oxbridge you would be a fool to pick ULaw for the LLB. ULaw does not offer a respected LLB, they are lenient on A level grades, I heard of someone getting CCD and being admitted... Law firms filter your grades and you need AAB or above to apply. Even if you have that going to ULaw will not get you anywhere because there will be many well qualified applicants from much better unis (Oxbridge and Russell Group)

Seconded. You're sometimes even better off doing a non law degree and converting. I did a science degree and had no legal work experience but got a training contract with a magic circle firm who are now going to pay me through the GDL and LPC.

Why do a conversion course with UOL when you could just do the senior status or graduate entry LLB being that you will already have an undergrad?
