ZERO, unless you have passed all UK lawyer exams. Good thing is that EU lawyers stand same chances unless a company from their own country operates in the UK. 100% of the UK recruiters prefer to see UK LLB WITHOUT LLM instead of a foreign law degree plus a few LLM's. I don't know how you get on the Roll in your home country, but the UK route includes 2 years training, which are crucial in the eys of any prospective employer. Even if you pass the QLTT (being regulated EU lawyer) and get admission with the Scots/English Law Society, this would mean nothing. Uni reputation vs fees also does not strike a balance; it is the UK LLB what matters.
