    CILEX is another option but you seem to be driven by money and prestige. You won't earn anywhere near as much money going the CILEX route.

    I wouldn't say there is much difference between the intellectual challenge of a postgrad LLB + LPC or the GDL + LPC. The former is three years to the latters two years though.

    GDL + LPC would set you up better to begin a training contract.

    Not necessarily - proper universities (with proper law societies) offer fast-track law degrees, and this guy will need some ECs...

    True. I thought the ECs bit was fairly self-explanatory tbh.

    A bit of research can answer this question for you.

    ECs = extra-curriculars.

    Isn't it too much an LLB in two years via distance learning? It's shrinking 3 full time years in two!

    while a GDL is one year course across two years with distance learning part time

    A couple of points of info: I don't know whether many universities offer distance learning 2-year law degrees; and you don't cover the same amount of material as you would on the full LLB - you do the core modules and then a limited number of optional/non-core modules (generally between 1 and 3, depending on university).

    If you're planning on doing distance learning, the GDL would make more sense anyway. I think the main benefits of the senior status LLB are (i) the university environment and (ii) access to the university law society, neither of which you'd get with distance learning.

    You'd be better off putting £100 on Wales to win the Euros. Winning the bet. Putting the winnings on Wales to win the World Cup in 2018. Winning the bet. Buying a mortgage free house and then continuing to work in your current job.
    Interestingly, the odds for Wales to win the Euros are 80/1 and for the World Cup its 500/1 (although it could slash if Wales win the Euro)... so if you put £100 in, you get £8,100 after the Euros and if you put that in, you get £4,058,100 after the World Cup. This is of course more than enough to be set up for a comfortable life. However, if OP wants a high-end prestige-filled life in London, then that would be difficult.
