    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 :laughing:).

    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.
