Say I took law and politics at Cardiff... is that a qualifying law degree? It says it's the LLB but I don't really understand.

I don't think I have the grades to just do straight law at Cardiff but I really want to go there!

If it says the degree is an LLB then it is a qualifying law degree. So, even if its combined with Politics, or French, if it says LLB, then you can still qualify as a solicitor with it, as you still study the key modules the Law Society requires in recognising it as a qualifying degree. I applied to Law and Politics at Cardiff because I didn't have the grades for straight law, but I decided I'd rather just concentrate on Law, so did it somewhere else.

That's helpful, thanks. I definitely don't have the grades for Law at Cardiff but at a push I could probably get the required grades for Law and Politics. Good to hear it qualifies then. I love Cardiff a lot!

The Cardiff Law and Politics degree meets the requirements of the governing bodies of the solicitors and barristers branches of the legal profession so that LLB graduates may obtain exemption from the academic stage of the professional examinations (provided they include the foundation subjects in their studies). Cardiff Law School also offers the Legal Practice Course and Bar Vocational Course which graduates wishing to become solicitors and barristers respectively need to complete.

I suspect it will be up to you to pick the right modules in years two and three though.

Yes, it's qualifying -- as long, as course, as you pick the mandatory modules, but you can ask Cardiff what these are when you get there if you're not sure.

Yes it is (although I see that's already been confirmed. But if you're ever uncertain then always check with the solicitors regulation authority. They keep a list of accredited degrees. As you can see Cardiff's JH courses are there

My sister's friend did Law & Accountancy at Manchester, and city firms were pretty much fighting over him. Law and Politics would be a great degree imo.

That's it! I was trying to remember all of the seven core modules and I was having a mind blank I forgot EU and land. Forgetting land in particular is quite embarrising as I may be studying it in a couple of years time.

Lol, I didn't study it. I may be in the future (as part of an MSc in Real Estate). I haven't completely dismissed taking the GDL but I'd say a career in rural surveying is more likely than a law career, right now.

I am doing the Maitres. A wise guy like you doesn't need an explanation.
I am just wondering whether to become a French lawyer or Barrister first?
