Work Opportunities after LLM


Hi guys, i wanted to ask all of you solicitors and lawyers in England and Scotland about the job opportunities after the LLM.
I am a month away from finishing my B.A. in Law overseas, i got admitted to the LLMs in QMUL, Manchester, Bristol, Glasgow and Edinburgh, i wanted to ask about the job opportunities if i accept the offers to one of this programs, is it viable to get a training contract in England after the LLM in one of the english universities via the SQE?
Is it viable to get a job in Scotland after the LLM in either Glasgow or Edinburgh?

Hi, to practice law in the UK you need a "qualifying law degree" which normally equals an LLB degree from the UK university (nb scots LLBs are not considered as "qualifying degrees" in England.) I'm not sure whether having an LLM from a British uni counts as a "qualifying" degree (likely not). I think all the relevant info can be found on the Law Society's website. For non-qualifying degrees there used to be a law conversion course called GDL, but I think this has been scrapped and replaced with the SQE Preparation course, which is supposed to allow you to sit the real SQE.
