Some of the law schools that I am considering have two year LLB programs (Leicester, Hull, Kent and Sheffield) while others I am looking at (Warwick, Manchester and Sussex) do not.
As a student completing a four year undergraduate degree, I would meet the requirements for the 2 year program and would be most interested to hear from you if you are in a position to assess any of the 2 year programs, particularly those mentioned above. I am aware of the way the course selection works- essentially you take the core courses with vitually no room left for electives.
What are the pros and cons of a 2 year versus a 3 year?
Thanks in advance.

You might want to visit this site: http://affiliatedlaw.blogspot.com/
It says Cambridge Affiliated Law, but it has good information about Senior Status Law Programs in general. I think the owner frequents TSR as well, Ad-Alta's the username if I'm not mistaken.
Personally, I chose the 2-year courses because of the costs of me going to, and staying in the U.K. That's basically it. If I could, I probably would have chosen the 3-year ones though, so that the workload would be distributed in a manner that would make my life less hectic (and would consequently allow me more time to be a tourist ).
Good luck with your decision and application!

thanks for that. Which school are you attending and what do you think of it? Do you attend classes with students in the 3 year program?

I just applied last month for entry in 2009/2010, so I'm afraid I won't be able to answer Question 1.
As for Question 2, I think affiliated students do attend classes with those in the 3-year program. I could be wrong though.
