    I was on the third and final year of my course, but had to take some time off due to circumstances that arose. I was diagnosed with depression amongst other contributing factors which hindered my grades and essentially not completing my degree.

    My university has agreed that whilst I can't be readmitted back to my final year nor can I resit the exams they will however allow me to restart my course. Obviously this is not ideal, however, I am not complaining as Law is all i've wanted to do. Thus my question is, if I was to redo my degree, would I be asked why? Would this put me at a disadvantage when applying for experience? I will be 23 when I finally graduate, and ideally want to do a Masters then take the LPC. Any advice on this matter would be really appreciated.

    Not necessarily since you have mitigating circumstances.

    I'm just a bit shocked that your University is willing to make 2 years of your work go to waste.
