    I intend to go to the Bar.

    If you want to be a family solicitor, QM is plenty prestigious. You only really need to worry if you want the top commercial law firms.



    Personally, I'd throw caution to the wind and reapply, but it really depends how confident you are of getting the grades. If I couldn't get an A* and make the leap to somewhere like Durham or Bristol etc, I'd probably stay at QM or just see what was in adjustment.
    Really? because sometimes I talk to people and there say things like "queen mary :s where is that?" , or "is that really in the russell group?" And i'm just standing there like uhmm. . .

    I think I may be able to get an A* in A Level Law as my UMS is pretty high and I just have one exam left. I think maybe adjustment is the best thing then.

    And interesting, do you want to do Criminal Law?

    Well, people on here know what QM is. I don't know about the general public, but I can't see any family solicitor turning their nose up at any RG uni, to be honest.

    On do I want to do criminal law: no. They get paid (relatively) poorly, have to deal with criminals all the time, and don't get complex points of law as often as barristers in other areas. I want to work in commercial/ commercial chancery.
