Law Gavel

2-year LLB

Students who already have a degree from Canada or the US can apply for a 2-year graduate entry program in the UK. Particularly popular with Canadians, the degree allows graduates to qualify with a Law degree in only 2 years and practice in Canada.

3-year LLB

Students have the option of studying a 3-year LLB Law degree straight after high school. This is a less intense option than the fast-track 2-year LLB. Many universities will also offer a 4-year degree option.

Online Law Degree

An online LLB is offered by a small number of universities in the UK and so our consultants are often asked whether this is an option for Canadian students who wish to study at a UK Law school.

A major benefit of studying Law in the UK, as a Canadian or American, is that the UK's Bachelor of Laws (LLB) and Juris Doctor (JD) programs provide graduates with an accredited degree, allowing them to practice Law and apply for registration in Canada, New York or California. This is why we see over 500 North American students apply to Law Schools in the UK with us every year.

Did you know you can apply to Law School straight out of High School and complete a 3-year Law degree? Or did you know you don't need the LSAT to apply if you already hold an undergraduate degree? These and more frequently asked questions on studying Law in the UK are answered on our Law in the UK FAQ page.

Contact us today to receive a free consultation to discuss your UK Law School options. 

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. Speak to an SI-UK consultant to learn more about your Law School destination options.  

If you meet the eligibility requirements for a Canadian Student Loan, you may use the federal portion to study overseas.  All of our UK university partners have been approved as Designated Post-Secondary Institutions by the Canadian Government. Learn more about your allowances and find further links to official websites on our Law student loans page
