Hi, being a former student and tutor of English law at a traditional UK university (UCL), I can offer you these comments, which I hope you find useful:

Generally, the degree classes are something like this in a typical UK university:
- First Class Honours - overall marks of 70% and above; generally, about 3-8% of students graduate with this.
- Upper Second Class Honours (2.1) - overall marks of 60% - 69%; about 50-70% of students graduate with this.
- Lower Second Class Honours (2.2) - overall marks of 50% - 59%; about 10-30% of students graduate with this.
- Third Class Honours - overall marks of 45% - 49%
- Pass (General Degree without honours) - overall marks of 40% - 44%

Do bear in mind that traditionally, English law schools mark out of a maximum of 80%, so any law student who scores something like 75% in a traditional university is considered outstandingly brilliant.

In the UK legal profession, a 2.1 is increasingly becoming a requirement, especially for the leading firms. No employer would demand a first class honours LLB because in any UK university, only a small handful will obtain this in each graduating year.
