In the world of top law firms (Magic Circle as they're called in the UK; White Shoe as we refer to them here), your statements are not accurate. Taking a quick look at these, you'll see that I provided very accurate information.
Hogan Lovells took NO ONE from QMUL -- but Durham, Nottingham, KCL, UCL, LSE, Bristol are all represented.
Queen Mary has only recently started to be targeted, but is not targeted to the same extent as any of the above-mentioned.
Queen Mary isn't even included in this list.
Here's a more detailed thread about it:
And, of course, you can read this post by someone who has more experience than you do:
Fact of the matter is that there are tiers among the law schools and yes, certain law schools are selected for or recruited over others. QMUL is not in the same league as Durham, Nottingham, KCL, UCL, LSE, Bristol at least no yet. Might it be eventually? Sure. Is it currently? No. And you need only look at not just my statements, but the statements of other people who have experience in the field as well as look at simple statistics. For example, referring back to the above, Lovells didn't take a single person from QMUL but did take more than a good number from the schools I mentioned.
Remind me, how am I wrong?
Finally, I would like to point out that you criticized me for only stating, as you called it, my opinion.
Well, now I've provided sources that indicate such ranking differences exist and that they do matter. You've stated merely your opinion
and did not provide any sources. Kind of ironic that you can state your opinion
as fact without any sources while simultaneously criticizing, as you called it, my opinion.
Good job with the whole being hypocritical there -- since you attempted to state your opinion
as truth, without having any evidentiary basis for doing so, while also claiming, as you put it, my opinion
as false because it didn't have any evidentiary support.
