The Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) opens to degree holders in any subject intending to be qualified as solicitors.  But a prestigious formal law degree still puts you in a better position and is likely to be favoured by law firms.  A rigorous LLB will give you solid foundation to pass the SQE assessments.  SQE includes two assessments: SQE1 and SQE2.  SQE1 assesses functioning legal knowledge (FLK).  Most of the FLK areas are covered in the LLB curriculum.  For full details, please refer to the Solicitors Regulation Authority:

Bar training

You still need a qualifying law degree (minimum 2:2 classification) or a non-law degree plus a Graduate Diploma in Law to fulfill the academic stage if you want to become a barrister.  Your law degree must include seven foundations of legal knowledge which are all covered in the LLB curriculum.  For full details, please refer to the Bar Standards Board:

Admission in other jurisdictions
