The SQE/ Edinburgh vs Durham UniWatch
More law resources on TSR
Hi! I am currently trying to choose between unconditional offers between Edinburgh and Durham uni to study law. I love both but Edinburgh would be free as I am a Scottish student. However, if I want to go on to be a solicitor afterwards (though not 100% sure I want to) I would have to convert from Scots law to English law (I don’t want to stay in Scotland) which adds on a whole extra year before I can go on and do the LPC. I have been researching this and found out about the SQE which will be coming into place soon but was wondering if anyone could confirm that this would mean I would no longer have to do the conversion course by the time I graduate in 2023/ 2024. If that was the case I would choose Edinburgh, but if not I would choose Durham to keep all options open. Thank you so much if anyone can help me or direct me to the right place to ask this!
One route will be a lot cheaper, the other shorter so it is up to you what is more important
