    I'm going to do Access to HE and inevitably I want to do Law. I'm looking at Keele (and similar) because RG-standard unis like A-levels.

    Do I do a Law degree at Keele or should I do a History degree, get a first/2:1 and then try to get into a graduate-entry Law at a better law school?

    Is it worth the extra 2-3 years of study (and tuition fees) to get a law degree from a better university or should I try Keele Law and go for an LLM at a better uni?

    Rankings don't matter and studying law at undergrad level is about studying the subject not about becoming a lawyer. You may want to think about what you want to do career wise and see what the traditional and other pathways into it are. Russell group doesn't mean much for undergrads as you don't get involved with research really.
