maybe not at a top uni, for sure
but there are more options than you'd think
depends on the degree and btec combination they have though

potentially may need a foundation year etc?

Depends, which degree at which uni, and exactly what how "academic" is being defined here. You could probably do a subject generally considered as "academic" (e.g. philosophy) at many unis with a BTEC. You might be less likely to be able to do such a degree at e.g. Oxford or Cambridge with a BTEC background. It's fairly relative...

But a BTEC will not be the best preparation for a traditionally academic degree (subject) in terms of certain skills, as they usually are structurally more similar to the assessment formate of A-levels than BTECs - and if you don't have appropriate study skills corresponding to those kinds of assessment (usually developed during A-level) it may be more of a difficult adjustment to uni level work.

That said the actual way you learn and are taught at uni for such academic subjects/degrees is quite different to A-level. Not being used to such a rigidly structured teaching format of being taught (or perhaps, spoon fed) exclusively to the exam may be a hidden benefit that could make the shift to uni level study easier in a way in fact...

Yeah, you can, I'm not sure about law specifically, but for higher unis, you might have to take a foundation year. I'm taking BTEC computing and need to take a foundation year to get into the University of Birmingham.
