A bachelor’s degree (either a BA in Law or an LLB, depending where you go) usually takes three years in England and Wales. It is an academic qualification and does not qualify you as a lawyer; for that you need to do further professional studies.
To become a lawyer through the traditional route, you’ll first need to complete a qualifying law degree (LLB) at university, or study another subject at undergraduate level then take the one-year Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) conversion course. At this point the pathways for aspiring solicitors and barristers diverge.
You need to study for five years to qualify as a barrister:
1. Three-year undergraduate degree.
2. One-year Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC)
3. One-year pupillage in Chambers.
