    I'm interesting to hear Student Room's thoughts!
    An informal list based on what I've heard from recruiters:
    Band 1
    - Cambridge
    - Oxford

    Band 2
    - Bristol
    - Durham
    - LSE
    - KCL
    - Manchester
    - Nottingham
    - UCL
    - Warwick
    - Edinburgh

    Band 3
    - Birmingham
    - Exeter
    - Leeds
    - Sheffield
    - Cardiff
    - QMUL
    - etc.

    And a more formal list with data:

    I think that is a great list--especially with including the tiers--do you think there is much difference between, say Bristol, LSE, UCL?

    I am applying to senior status / graduate law programs in 2017 and so far I will be applying too:

    Band 1:
    Oxford

    Band 2:
    Bristol, Nottingham, Edinburgh

    Band 3:
    Exeter

    What are your thoughts on these schools for law?

    People on here will say there is, but tbh, they're all top tier universities for law. I can't imagine an LSE/UCL/KCL grad having a massive advantage.

    That grouping looks good to me.

    Thank you for your help--Oxford is obviously a crapshoot--but either Nottingham or Bristol I will be happy. I have high undergrad grades so look forward to see what comes my way in 2017!

    Cheers
