I'm not sure you understand how an LLB actually works.
It requires to first have an undergrad in prelaw and then get a "second bachelors" in law
I love it when people speak authoritatively, yet are completely wrong.
An LL.B does not require a preceeding Bachelor's degree. The LL.B is usually completed in four years, followed by supervised on the job training. This is how it works in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and the Caribbean.
I'm currently preparing for the UK exams, and have several friends and family who are UK solicitors. Trust me, this is how it works.
I believe that Jon Levy is also a licensed UK solicitor?
In civil law jurisdictions the law diploma has various iterations. Sometimes it's a doctorate, sometimes not. It can be completed in four to six years depending. Admission to both LL.B and civil law diploma programs is usually quite competitive, and universities will strictly limit the number of entrants.
Half of law school is electives anyways. Why waste peoples time with that an internships?
I agree. Electives at the graduate/professional level are an absurd waste of time. Just a way to get more tuition. Most students would be far better served spending that time learning how to draft a will or living trust, review a contract, or filing a motion. Our legal education is almost entirely academic, and needs more practical training.
