    Hey guys i have just solved my dilemma of which route to take into law

    So i have chosen to do LLB Law with Criminology thanks to the help of a member. But Now i just want to figure out a route into being either a solicitor or barrister which doesnt take to many years because i dont really want to be too old when i finish training or practising to be either one of those so after i finish my LLB degree does anyone have any suggesting into what happens after that. i have done tons of research but still none of it really makes sense in my head.

    i have just left the library and i have taken out about 3 books about criminal law, so i just going to read into it seeing if it makes any sense to me and just try to get my head around it

    any ideas?

    Because you have done a Law degree with something else, then it will be a qualifying law degree, which means you are on track to complete qualifying as fast as any other law student. You will all be taking the SQE (starts 2020) by the time you finish your degree. The crunch point will be finding someone to employ you, which is where all the competition starts.

    You can read about it here.
    Just be aware most of the training contracts are with commercial firms, so make sure its criminal you want.
