The link isn’t really relevent
There are 2 people studying this program in Taiwan, I used to study the Master’s level, but have to admit quitting it this year. The other people have noted that the textbooks “run out” for the later courses so you would need to make sure you can source these cheaply before commiting.
My personal experience with London External follows.
Basically you are given a study guide which is a like a “summary” of some important cases/theories, a textbook focused on the main issues and then streams of cases/articles and also you get access to 8-10 legal databases and an underutilized “student network”/web-forum… The summary is supposed to be a guide, but I found this discussion frustratingly broad. I was doing the IP specilization and my final exam for one topic covered everything from trademark history/filing/regulations in 5 jurisdictions plus international agreements through dilution and “other issues” to parallel imports selective distribution networks, EU competition laws (a. 81/2) and free movement laws (a.28) and design patent regulations as well as certification marks and “tribal knowledge”, ie, is the Redskins an offensive TM?
The final exam only asked about parallel imports that was 1 page in the study guide. This is the biggest problem - you have zero “weighting” of the relevance and importance of different elements you study and the exams are short and require detailed answers (as clarification, the study guide for that exams was about 600 pages long and included around 40 cases/articles and covered 5 chapters (60-80 pages each) of the textbook.
Finally, the editing of the study guide is wrong and the wrong cases are cited or misspelled. This means you end up having to check up on the summarised cases as well. For each 120 hour section I would spend maybe 140-50 hours studying
The exam fees charged by the BTCO are also extortionate - I paid 8000nt to sit three 45minute exams.
On the positives, it is a reputed program and is accredited as a QLD and is very cheap - the LLB is only about 1000GBP per annum for a 3 year graduate conversion.
In the end, if you are working in the field and want to improve your employability I would still recommend it since it’s the only one you don’t need residential weekends for. I have stopped studying not because I couldn’t pass the exams or hated the program but I was not receiving the support from my company to continue with the program - I had to use my own holiday allowance to sit exams and was left a little burned out from FT-job + study, also I was offered a training contract back home so will take that and recieive all the support I need.
If you are good at organizing your time and are willing to commit to the program and can budget for failry minor unexpected costs I would still recommend it as not everyone has the time/money for a 2 year grad conversion at law school.
PS sorry for spelling mistakes
PPS look into malaysia for sitting exams and getting a good support network since hundreds of Malays qualify using London External
