One of the most complicated questions is how to study the law. It must be noted that becoming a lawyer has different requirements in different countries. In the UK, it takes average seven years to become a lawyer. First, you need to complete an underlying bachelor’s degree. Such a degree can be completed in any field and may not necessarily be linked to legal studies. After your bachelor’s, you need to give the LSAT or the Law School Admission Test. Currently, LSAT is considered one of the most competitive tests, and without completing it, no law school will accept the candidate. You can even end up at prestigious schools like Harvard or Yale based on the LSAT (Law School Admission Test) score and a strong profile. After a three-year degree at a law school, you will have to appear for the bar license and gain any necessary pre-determining qualification for it as well.
On the other hand, there are countries, like the UK, where the law school and bachelor’s degree are the same. You can complete your LLB within three years after high school. If your LLB degree has all the required prerequisites to enter the bar exams, which most law degrees do, you can appear for all 11 of the major bar at law exams within a year. You must join one of the four prestigious inns in the UK to do these exams. After the bar exams, you need a mandatory one-year practice, which can sometimes be completed while preparing for the exams. After this routine, you gain your bar license to work as a barrister. Studying abroad in the UK is the dream of most potential lawyer.
