    I m actually im my first year of law at the university of Fribourg in Switzerland. I m on a double degree program with the university of Paris II and at the end I ll have both Masters. What do you think an employer would value most, a double law degree from France ans Switzerland or should I go to the UK and do the LLB. I m on the waiting list of LSE and still waiting for UCL to reply but would it not be better to finish my degree and then go and do a masters course in the UK because an LLM must be worth more than an LLB, especially if you ve already got a diploma from another juridiction which shows you know differnt laws and you can adapt easily and work in differnt countries.
    Thank you for any advice.

    No need to do a whole LLB in England if you want to practice here. Complete the degree you're on, and then apply for the CPE, which is a conversion course where you only need to do one year but qualifies you to apply for an LPC or BVC (the qualifications requisite to becoming a solicitor or barrister respectively).

    Thanks for the advice. Does the fact of having an LLM change anything???
