    I'd imagine rankings and prestige is slightly important with law because it is traditionally an elitist subject and career. The reputation of a good university will statistically increase your chances of getting into an extremely competitive field. This is pretty evident in some MC law firms, where around half of their trainees each year come from Oxbridge. If, however, you looked at a subject like engineering or biology, reputation is not really taken into account, whereas in law firms the intake of trainees shows a clear relationship between students from top universities getting in and students from average to lower ranked unis being almost impossible to find.

    Indeed but every list has different ranking. I noticed that when it comes to world rankings, the only university outside of London or oxbridge that always holds a place in the top 50 is Manchester

    just out of curiosity, where would Reading and Surrey place in terms of law schools?

    I am considering both uni's as choices but worried about factors such as job prospects

    In general, I think these are the top ones in England and Wales:

    Londons (UCL, LSE, KCL), Oxbridge, Manchester, Nottingham, Durham, Birmingham, Warwick, Bristol.

    If possible, better get into a Russell Group university.
