    Hi all,

    I'm planning to apply for Law having done a science degree to pursue a career in Medical Law. I'm wondering if I would be better off to study another undergraduate degree, since that would be a qualifying Law degree, even though it does take longer and costs more. Also because the GDL degree doesn't offer medical law module.

    Also I would like to know if it is important that which university law students graduated from? I could only do part-time law degree, since I will be working alongside. And only Westminster Uni, BPP and UoL are the ones that provide you to study PT, but two of which are even on the league table. Career-wise, would it have a great impact where you studied? I would imagine city law firms would only take graduates from the top universities.

    Thanks very much for your views!

    Hi

    The University of Westminster does offer part time LLB Law degrees however as you already have a degree you would be better off studying the GDL as it is cheaper and takes less time. For careers in Medical Law you need to have a qualifying Law degree which you can get through the GDL. After this students will typically study a Masters in Medical Law or Medical Negligence to be able to specialise in this area.

    You can find out further information on careers in Medical Law in the UK from the All About Law website.

    I'd recommend you attend an Information Evening at Westminster to find out more about the Westminster GDL.

    Best wishes
