Law schools will have very clear guidelines for what they consider to be acceptable scores. If they accept both tests, they'll either tell you the minimum they require or what they perceive as acceptable. And if they do accept both, they won't favor one over the other.

If you think you could get a better comparable TOEFL score than your current IELTS score, then you should take it. If not, then don't.

I think an 8 IELTS score will be enough. I've noticed that most US law schools ask for a TOEFL score. However, there isn't a norm.

Hi,

The schools you will apply for will tell you which score they expect for either the TOEFL or the IELTS.

Otherwise UK schools tend to prefer the IELTS and US schools the TOEFL - although they usually accept both. In the case of KCL however they seem much more demanding about the TOEFL than the IELTS, might be the case for other UK schools.
