it depends on which university you will chose , USA and UK are the best countries to study in, in the same time there are thousands of universities in both countries , some of the universities in both countries are not internationally organized ( very weak) and some of them are the best universities in the world like: HARVARD UNIVERSITY ( USA) no.1 in the world and CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY ( UK) NO.2 in the world. however in which country you like to practice, try to chose a good university especially in law , and they are a lot in both countries . try to look for the following web site maybe it will help you to have look for the universities in USA & UK . good luckSource(s): http://www.webometrics.info/index.html

It depends where you want to practice, since the laws are very different in each country. A lot of European universities offer supplementary classes in American law, so you could get the UK degree then do a secondary course in American law. This would not give you the right to practice law in the US, though; it would just give you an understanding of the differences.

If you do a UK law degree you can then go on and take the California Bar exam in Birmingham (the one in England) so you can practise in either country. I'm not sure youcan do thye same the other wsay round.
Tuition fees are lower in the UK but then the chances of getting a bursary or other financial aid are slim.

I would say if you plan to pratice law in the USA then get a law degree in the USA if you plan for the UK then get a Law degree there.
