    Hi Guys,
    I was wondering, if you have an English LLB, is it possible to practise Law in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks.

    No. There are three legal systems (England/wales, Scotland and NI) and you need to have a qualifying law degree from that particular legal system to be able to work as a lawyer within it. Dundee is the only university in the country to offer qualifying LLB degrees for all three legal systems but it is possible to gain an LLB in English Law and then study additional subjects so that you can gain a professional qualification for Northern Ireland. The Republic of Ireland is a separate matter altogether.
