Is it any point doing a part-time distance-learning law degree?

Asked by lilgiraffe (283points) July 9th, 2009

I did my BA in Economics but now am thinking of doing law. Due to financial constraints I will have to do a 2-year part-time distance-learning course for an LLB certified by the University of London.

To be a practicing lawyer, I believe I will have to go to the UK to do a 1-year preparation course to pass the bar and be able to practice as a lawyer. I am not sure if a distance-learning LLB degree will permit me to sit for the Bar exam in the UK?

Also, what do people think of Law as a second degree for a career change?
