Is a Pakistani LLB degree (three years ) a qualifying Law Degree (QLD) in the UK ?
Kindly guide me. Some Universities are not accepting a Pakistani Three Years LLB Degree as not a Qualifying Law Degree (QLD) in the UK.

Students who have completed a full-time degree in any subject from an overseas university qualify for entry onto the Graduate Diploma in Law.

Overseas law degrees are not recognised by the SRA as qualifying law degrees .

If you have a law degree from an overseas institution, you can in some circumstances apply to the SRA for Equivalent Means, which can grant exemption from qualification and training requirements such as the LPC, Common Professional Examination and Period of Recognised Training.

If you're an overseas student...

Students who have completed a full-time degree in any subject from an overseas university qualify for entry onto the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL), after which you can complete the Legal Practice Course (LPC) if you want to become a solicitor, or the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) if you want to be a barrister. (In addition, foreign lawyers following the QLTS who have successfully completed the LPC are entitled to apply to the SRA for full exemption from the MCT.) Bear in mind that from September 2021 everyone wishing to qualify as a solicitor in England and Wales, including overseas candidates, will be required to take the new SQE.

Overseas law degrees are not recognised by the SRA as qualifying law degrees (nor are most LLMs completed in the UK). If you have a law degree from an overseas institution, you can in some circumstances apply to the SRA for Equivalent Means, which can grant exemption from qualification and training requirements such as the LPC, Common Professional Examination (CPE) and Period of Recognised Training (PRT).
All those acronyms :doh:

I think you just answered your own question. The answer is a Law conversion course like this one at BPP for example
