In a book recently, I saw a reference to someone "reading law" at such and such a university in England. But I thought "reading law" was a way to bypass law school and still enter the law profession (after passing the bar I presume). Is that only in the United States? Any other countries?
Does England have a similar way to become a lawyer without going to college? Then what do they call it?
In the US, do persons who read law and then become lawyers get to put anything after their name? Obviously they would not be permitted to put J.D.
