Will studying at the Open University limit my training contract chances?

Its status among solicitors is a worry

In the latest instalment in our Career Conundrums series, one reader has some law degree decisions to make.

I am currently working for a mid-sized law firm in central London while studying for my CILEx qualification part-time. I have applied to study for the LLB in legal practice at City, University of London — it’s an online course developed with CILEx. At the moment I’m waiting to see if I have satisfied my offer, but I am also looking at studying with the Open University if I do not. Do you think studying with the Open University will put me at a disadvantage when applying for training contracts?
