"You're better off going to law school abroad."
That is one of the 10 Things Law Schools Won't Tell You from Annamaria Andriotis' Smart Money article.
English universities don't offer a core curriculum of arts and sciences. Prospective students declare their major during the application process. After three years at an English university, law students can complete their undergrad studies and qualify for the Bar exams in 27 states...
