I'm looking at becoming a lawyer but I'm having some issues getting into University I am taking steps towards getting into Uni however if this doesn't go to plan I need to come up with a new plan is there anywhere else I can get the qualifications that I need? Preferably online, My ATAR is no good any help is greatly appreciated. Cheers

Find the jurisdiction you want to become a lawyer in. Look up their legal profession body (i.e. their law society). For example: Home

Then look up the requirements to be admitted to practise law:
Admission to Practice

if the only way to meet those is to do a university degree, then there is no other option.

Plan A -Go back to high school. Study hard and get a good atar.
Plan B - Get into an arts degree and do well and then apply to transfer into law from there. If your ATAR was so low that you can't get into an Arts Degree then go back to plan A
