Each year hundreds of Canadians head to the UK to start their Law studies. There are a number of reasons for doing this, not least of which is the 2 year Accelerated Law Program (JD Pathway) available to students who already have a university degree.

This program is offered at a number of our partner schools, including our Russell Group schools which are the equivalent of Ivy League universities in North America. Not only does this program save time and money, but the qualifications are easily transferred to working back here at home so it is an extremely popular choice for many Canadians who are interested in pursuing a legal career.

Another benefit of UK Law schools is that the 3 year LLB program is available to students who wish to apply directly from high school. Again, this saves a considerable amount of time and tuition, and leads to credentials which can be used back in Canada without any difficulty. There is also a great opportunity to network both overseas and upon your return to Canada with the help of Canadian Law Societies which many of the universities have set up to assist students launch their law careers.

In addition, an International education is something which is greatly sought after by many employees. They know that students who have studied overseas have self reliance, discipline and can work effectively with people from all over the world. (Of course, there is the added perk of cheap travel though out all of Europe’s wonders once you are settled into your classes and have weekends off!)

Barclay Educational Services has successfully helped students study overseas for more than a decade, whether it is for Law or a number of other programs.
