    Well first off, are you interested in Scottish law or English law? Both countries have different legal systems. If you can make that decision, it should narrow down your options a little.

    Hi Ally,

    As Insecable says - the law systems are different, so if you studied Scots Law at Glasgow and did your professional diploma in Scotland, you'd be qualified to work in Scotland, but you'd need to do a conversion course to practise in England (and visa versa with working in Scotland if you studied at York or Leeds). However, Glasgow also offers a Common Law LLB, which is apparently a qualifying degree for practicing in England or Scotland - or further afield.

    I'm doing my DPLP (Diploma in Professional Legal Practice) at Glasgow at the moment (which is a step up work-wise from the LLB, but necessary in order to be able to practise as a solicitor in Scotland). Around half or more of my fellow DPLP students are Glasgow LLB graduates, so they must think the Uni's doing something right to stay on!
How are you feeling about your exams?
