Hello,

I wanted to do an undergraduate degree in philosophy or Middle Eastern studies before applying for a law conversion,

my teacher has just informed me by the time I would be applying for a law conversion course it might not exist anymore and that I would have to apply for an LLB (I think she meant LLM, because it would be a post graduate course)?

can anyone offer me some guidance on what I should do because my plans just fell apart slightly haha :,)

Thank you so much
Areen!

You would take the SQE 1 and SQE 2 exams, followed by two years of work experience, in order to qualify, rather than doing the current GDL -> LPC -> TC route.

This link breaks it down fairly well:

Yes, so probably you would take a GDL type course to pass SQE1 and then sit SQE1 and then an LPC type course and sit SQE2 and then 2 years training but with more flexibility than the current system. After year 1 of your degree start looking at law firm websites and applying for vacation schemes as firms recruit years ahead and if you get a job with them they would fund you through your SQE2 and SQE2 courses.
