I want to study law at ucl, lse or kings college London and they offer a place at Columbia law school in the third year. I REALLY want to get in but they only take 3 from the year so my chances are really low. How do I get in or at least have a good chance. I have done internship and work placements and also volunteering in law. Is it based on academic merit or what...? please help

1) academic grades
2) extra curricular or input into the faculty
3) having the money to cover the fees (this excludes a lot of people in each cohort).

I did complete and FOI request with KCL on the LLB + JD.

In 2016/17, 18 people applied for 2 places.

Now they include Georgetown. In 2018/19, 19 applied for 5 places.

It is not as crazily competitive as people think. KCL indicates that successful candidates typically have a first or a high 2:1. If you're going to study at Columbia, this is something which should be rather easily achieved.

I’m not surprised to see those low numbers. The fees put the vast majority off, a lot of people know they won’t have the grades too.

The people who I have seen complete the course often have often had some kind of role in faculty too - whether that’s been some kind of assistant over the summer, or very active in student/teacher relations etc.

If I had $50k just laying around i'd consider it, but as J-SP rightly put it, the fee's are often the biggest hurdle.

Back in 2011/12, I know someone who had to raise closer to £120k to pay for their dual qualifying LLB/JD course.

Yes - there will be various schemes both in the UK and US. But there’s a significant chance you would need to at least part fund the course.
