Law degrees are graduate degrees (JD) in the US, you need to have an undergraduate (BA/BSc/etc) degree before you can apply to law school there. So get a degree, in any subject, from anywhere, first. Then you can pursue a law degree in the US.

It's probably more straightforward to get a law degree in the UK and then focus on states which allow foreign lawyers to take the bar directly or after just an LLM or equivalent undertaken in the US (with any relevant coursework necessary), rather than getting a full JD paid out of pocket. Law school is extremely expensive, and you are unlikely to be eligible for any student loans for it (although you may be able to take out a bank loan, the relative worth of doing so rather than e.g. getting a mortgage or something is debatable to say the least).
