Are you American or British? Law in the US is taken as a post graduate degree but in the UK it is taken as an undergraduate degree. If you want to study it at LSE or Oxbridge you would have to take it as a second undergraduate degree. UK students with non-law degrees who want a legal career generally take the year long graduate diploma in law (GDL) also called a Common Professional Exam (CPE). A list of providers can be found at http://www.lawsociety.org.uk/becomingasolicitor/qualifying/common.law#list

The GDL is not offered by Oxbridge or the LSE.
