Which schools would you recommend, the ones which are more open towards accepting lawyers or students from alternative professions? And which ones yield good return also?

Most courses demand economics background. Though I am doing Finance with law and courses such as corporate finance, how should I use that?

That's not really the case. All are looking for some sign that you can work with numbers. They are not looking for economics genberally, but some schools (especially in France and Italy, but also Warwick) are highly technical. City University, where I did my MSc, say the Cass MiF requires "Some level of previous study or evidence of skills in finance or quantitative methods is essential." That sounds very open. You have some prior study and could easily take a MOOC is some more quantative area. Maybe pick one:
- https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-best-introductory-statistics-and-linear-algebra-MOOC-out-there-for-Data-Science
- https://www.quantstart.com/articles/How-to-Learn-Advanced-Mathematics-Without-Heading-to-University-Part-1
- https://www.edx.org/course/essential-mathematics-for-artificial-intelligence

I think you need to spend a bit more time working through these courses. Score them each on a square of 1 to 10 on hor hard-core their rrequirements are, and then look for what is missing in your studies so far. Then fill the gap.
