You will typically need high school grades of 70% (or at least 60%) or a university degree with a 2.6 GPA. No matter what your grades we can find a route to law school in the UK for you!
Canadian and American students have the choice of studying a qualifying law degree at a wide range of UK Universities immediately after high school or after they have completed an undergraduate degree.

Students who already have a degree from Canada or the US can apply for a 2-year graduate entry programme in the UK. These degrees have varying titles in the UK for example LLB Senior Status or Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) or the postgraduate level qualifying law degree - the MA Law.
This degree is particularly popular with Canadians as it allows graduates to qualify with a law degree in only 2 years and practice in Canada, California or New York. Students can also study for a 3 year LLB Law degree straight after high school, a less intense option than the fast track.

Where can I study law in the UK?
There are over 100 law schools across the UK. There are law schools in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland where you can study either an LLB/JD course or an LLM. SI-UK can help you to identify which law school is best for your academic and personal needs, informing you on what each university is like.
Location can often be as important a decision as an academic institution and so it is important to decide whether you are interested in a bustling metropolitan city campus, a smaller city/town feel or a more rural setting.
