This is my update on the UoL LLB. One thing that I find useful is when other posters detail their experiences in a particular program, so I suppose the least I can do is talk about my first year LLB studies. Granted, this is overdue, but the shock has finally worn off. First and most important, it's a lot of work. If you think that studying law via distance is going to be in any way easy, forget about it. I probably worked on average about 20 hours a week from early November to around the end of April, and the 3 weeks or so leading to exams it was almost every available minute. My results were not what I hoped for. I did alright, all passes and none of them borderline, but not as well as I wanted to do. Since I've never attended law school, I can't say how it actually compares. The only thing I can say is that it was a lot more work than my undergraduate degree in business. I would not suggest undertaking it using only the UoL study guide and textbooks. I studied with Law Tutors Online and found the service very useful. The notes that they provided were extremely helpful. UoL was extremely slow in sending out study materials. I paid my fees in October and received my books at the end of January. Exams are in May. If you do it you'll need time of work to take exams. They explain pass rates and so on in the student handbook, but if memory serves for graduate entry route B first year success rate is something like 55% (those who passed all 3 exams). Personally I found the studies interesting and challenging, but a lot of work if you don't actually plan on using it professionally. Please feel free to ask any questions, I dashed this off pretty quick.
