If I do law at a non Russel group university would I have a good chance in getting a job in a good London firm depending on the "grade" I get like first, 2.1, etc?

I didn't think there was a difference, I thought LLB stood for a Bachelor degree in law.

LLB is a qualifying degree which exempts you from the academic requirements for becoming a barrister or solicitor. The BA is just a standard degree. In order to become a barrister or solicitor you usually need either a LLB or a GDL (a law conversion course)

Whether a degree is a qualifying law degree has nothing to do with whether it is a BA or an LLB (or for that matter a BSc).

The standard law degrees at Oxford and Cambridge are both BAs. It is possible to do a QLD at Nottingham that is a BA and it isn't all that long ago since the standard law degrees at Durham, Leicester and Kent were all BAs. The only QLDs that are BScs are now joint honours degrees but that wasn't always the case. There are plenty of graduates with BScs in law.

Fair enough. my law teacher told me to avoid BA courses because they won't get you into law. Although she isn't that reliable a source on most things so...

This is the list of qualifying law degrees

http://www.sra.org.uk/students/cours...providers.page

Whether a particular student's degree is a QLD depends on whether he or she does the 7 core subjects. At some universities they are compulsory, at others they are not. As a generalisation it is usually easier to do a degree which doesn't amount to a QLD if it is a BA.

I've just gone into first year studying Scots Law LLB and my lectures consist of 3 per module and you do 3 modules a semester. That amounts to 9 hours lecture time and you usually have 2 tutorials a week so in total about 11 hours teaching time a week and I'd say you have to match that with preparation/reading etc throughout the whole week.

PLEASE HELP ME!
I didn't meet my LSE offer in 2014 because I got a B in A level History.Now, I am planning to reapply to universities and retake A level History in May. My question is whether universities give you conditions on retakes after you have already taken your A levels?
Thank you

Would need to ask the university or look at their entry requirements, some say first sitting.

Hello, I'm new to TSR today I'm currently studying AS and have to apply to Uni soon. I want to do Law (probably human rights) eventually, but not sure if I should do an english or geography degree at Uni and then a conversion, or do a normal Law degree straight off. Any ideas? Has anyone done a conversion course and could give me a first hand insight; or has anyone been in a similar predicament and can explain why they picked one or the other? so confused about what to do!

First thing you want to establish is whether or not you want to do an LLB in law or not. If not that conversion from one subject to another would be fairly easy. If you want to do an LLB (course that allows you to practice law) then conversion is near impossible from another course. I know of someone who has currently got a degree and is now doing a law degree in 2 years just by covering the basic modules.
