Actually I do think it is at least slightly interesting in that Oxbridge students are more likely to TRY to go to the Bar, presumably this contributes at least slightly to the increased proportion of Oxbridgers who SUCCEED...

It's coincidental that Nottingham isn't on the list and you have decided not to be a Barrister...

On the contrary, this list may be interesting for those yet to choose their University.

I often found the preoccupation of the vast majority of my peers with Solicitor-type stuff extremely disheartening. I'd love to have had a larger group of peers with similar ambitions and more people going through a similar application process etc.

So not as completely useless as you first thought...

I thought lots of people at King's wanted to go down the barrister route. I heard (ages ago) that they had a lot of graduates becoming barristers.

Although my memory could be fading in my old age...

the % of international students in the law faculty of UCL is not particularly high when compared to some of the unis on that list, like Nottingham, Warwick and Manchester, all of which have quite a few internationals reading law. also, not all internationals go back to their home country right after their degree. some do stay for the LPC/BVC and TC/Pupilage, then go back.
maybe its just that more of the international students in London go back home after realising that its a dump

Next time I'll take 'very interesting' to mean 'soporific drivel'

Onearmedbandit - KCL probably does have a high number of Barrister-destined folk (And splendid barristers they'll be...) But it did seem like a minority... Maybe they are just less vocal

Well of course they will be in a minority- the Bar's a much smaller profession! And it's also still Oxbridge dominated so that hardly helps things at King's. Also to get into the really good sets you ideally need a first- which most people obviously don't get. So all reasons why the Bar option would be a minority one.

Dreama are you heading off to the Bar or are you going the corporate route ala Lewis?

She's Bar route last I heard!

Good points about why they (Barristers) are the minority - that, and no-one likes them so they get pushed into a corner.
