    Hey, has anyone applied to Leeds for law? I haven't come across anyone who has applied to Leeds let alone receive an offer. Is it good for law?
    I've applied to Leeds and received an offer! It's a good uni and its overall ranking is higher than other unis like KCL and QMUL...I'm considering it, especially since I'm still waiting for my other 4 choices and I'm kinda losing hope!

    Leeds or Birmingham for law?

    Preferred the feel to Leeds and the way the undergraduates spoke about it on the open day but then Birminghams history with the character of the uni seems to be more.
    Which do you think employers would look at more keenly?

    Really interesting study done by Chamber student and The Times into what universities Law Firms appear to prefer. They interviewed thousands of trainee solicitors and noted down what universities each came from. Might be useful those struggling to decide what university to firm and what university is more respected by Magic circle firms.

    results from the Chamber Student and The Times are listed in the thread linked below

    But the uni's in clearing aren't the same as the unis in adjustment? right?

    No - you can approach any Uni you like if you exceed the grades required for your Firm. They may not have spaces or may not be interested in you, but you dont loose your current Firm while you ask. Here is the basic TSR advice about Clearing/Adjustment : http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/cont...ing-adjustment

    But honestly, if you get better grades than needed for your Firm, unless they are staggeringly better, its better to go to your original Firm (ie. AAB to AAA - is that course *really* going to be 'better' than your current Firm - not likely). If you get do get exceptionally/unexpected high grades (ie. BBB to AAA) you would be better dropping whatever offer you have for this year and making a fresh application for 2017. That way you get to look at the Uni(s) at Open Days, get a decent chance at securing decent accommodation and can think carefully about where you want to spend 3 years of your life rather than making an over hasty decision you later regret ....

    Can I remind everyone that a concentration of grads from X Uni at Y Law Firm does NOT mean that that Firm prefers folk from that Uni. All it means is that they have more of that Unis grads there - yes, that is all it means - -and that can be for any number of reasons like a group of particularly confident/strong grads from that Uni one year, an assumption by them that they will get in (so more folk from that Uni applied there) or simple geography (applicants who already live in London are more likely to want to work there), etc etc. AND, very importantly, even if this was reliable data, how do you know that in the 3 or 4 years you are at Uni that 'your' Uni might not suddenly slide down whatever clever list you are consulting?

    So, PLEASE don't use silly surveys like this as some sort of employment Bible. It is not a sensible or intelligent way to choose a Uni.

    No personally I kind of like the idea of a last minute Uni decision. I think it would be exciting to exceed your offer, make a few phone calls and next thing you know it you're halfway across the country. Obviously some research is necessary, but if it's for the same course and you can get decent accommodation, then I wouldn't have to think twice.

    Not saying it should be used as a bible but it can be helpful for those choosing university's. i.e. if im stuck between Leicester or Leeds seeing Leeds ranked highly INDICATES that university may have a better career service, more ambitious undergrads etc.

    Its certainly more useful than, than some of the advice here on TSR where often you here people telling others " employers prefer Warwick", "Employers prefer UCL to Kings", at least this gives you proper data to analyse

    has anyone who has applied for English Law (LLB) and French Law (Master) at KCL received an offer yet? A whole lot of offers/rejections seem to be going out for straight Law (LLB) but I have yet to meet one person applying for this particular course!
    I have and no offer yet, don't worry

    Sorry to hear that but congrats on your offer for Kings. I'm sure you're not that disappointed. My son got another email to say he was still being considered and could take another 2 weeks. Applied on 21 October for LSE. Are you firming Kings.
