Yes, you can. It's a one year law course called the CPE (Common Professional Examination). It's for university graduates with a first degree in any other course other than law.

You can find more information about CPE here:

It's around one year long, after that you'll have to decide what youw ant to be a solicitor or a barrister, If youw ant to be a Barrister you'll have to take the BVC and for solicitor a LPC. And then you'll have to find yourself some training contracts/pupilage

Both the BVC and LPC are an extra one year.

Training contracts from solicitor firms are usually two years in length

Does anyone know about any two year Law Conversion courses? I'm talking about the degree type. Bristol for example offers a two year Legal Studies MA and at oxford+cam you can take their three year BA in two years (if you already have one degree)

any help would be amazing!!

loads of institutions do conversion courses. The college of law has branches throughout the country from Guildford to York. www.lawcabs.ac.uk has a list of them or alternitavely your university or college should have a list in their careers library. Tuition fees are not the same as a degree because of the more one on one nature of the course and can be very expensive. To do a conversion at Guildford it is just under £6,000 for the CPE and nearly £8,000 for the LPC!! Hence why many people try to get training contracts with law firms as they normally pay this for you

its harder to do a law conversion course and that would be seen as better. But do a course you like, I wanted to do PPE as well as law, but i compromised with law and law and politics.
sorry i didn't really answer you question

It's not better or worse to do another degree before doing law. In fact, some firms like non law graduates, because they bring skills that a law graduate may not have, for example a history graduate would have the skills to analyse sources critically, and for something like tax law, a maths graduate may have skills that a law graduate would not
