    Well done! Can I ask what you got at GCSE please? Imo, Bristol and KCL are the best two so it depends now on location/uni U prefer, they're pretty equal with rep.

    I have an offer from Manchester also and waiting on Kings. Was going to apply to LSE but my AS results weren't that great so I was a bit hesitant. I think kings might reject me based on lnat idk how it went. But I'm leaning towards Warwick for now anyways as its really high in employment prospects.

    QMUL isn't highly thought of as a law school though?
    (Original post by JohnGreek)
    Both KCL and Bristol are reputed to be better, apparently. Not to say that any of them are poorly thought of, it's all relative

    Any thoughts on Nottingham?
    stop talking about rankings and reputation. talk instead about the level of teaching quality. many of the lecturers in the unis that you mentioned are from Europe, Africa and Asia where english is not their first subject. so their accent will be a lot harder to understand. lectures are perhaps once a week for 3 hours and most of the time people will be asleep cos they can't understand what the lecturer is saying. your tutors are PHD or Master in law candidates at the same uni. they will be crucial in helping you to answer your questions.

    If you ask me this is the order of the london unis in terms of teaching quality for law. Kings > UCL > LSE > Queen Mary > SOAS. How i arrived at this was based on the videos of lectures that my friends in those unis had recorded and kindly sent to me.

    How about Durham? How would you rank it with KCL, UCL, LSE, QM, SOAS

    Your Firm choice here rests on your confidence in achieving an A* and only you can judge that.

    You haven't got an obvious Insurance choice there - bit late now, but you should have included an AAB choice even if it wasn't Law. Bristol looks like the most flexible offer so that might be the best Insurance choice from what you have.

    i don't have any friends in durham. so i can't say unless i watch or listen to the video recordings of the lectures. but i think durham tries to be like oxbridge with its collegiate system. anyways the problem with this forum is that when it comes to law everyone is hung up about rankings and reputation but no one talks about the low level of teaching quality where
    1) the number of foreign law lecturers who have difficulty speaking English
    2) the number of foreign law lecturers who have difficulty expressing themselves in English
    3) the number of foreign law lecturers who are biased in their views when teaching European Union law. You know why?

    If UK pulls out of the EU, all these foreign law lecturers teaching in UK unis now will have to return back to their home countries and apply for work permits to work in UK as lecturers. That is not all. They will have to compete with better spoken, knowledgeable and smarter lecturers from the Commonwealth who breath and live the English Common law.

    This forum will have to learn the difficult way but by then it will be too late because you'll be stuck in the uni where the lecturers are hopeless and you will be wondering how to score those crucial marks for exams.

    For me the choice is clear:

    1. Firm Kings as its better the QMUL on all counts
    2. Bristol as insurance as its better than Manchester or Newcastle
    3. Both Manchester and Newcastle were available in clearing last year so you still have a chance at those even if you dont get Kings or Bristol, so definately not worth choosing them

    Firstly, King's is not better than LSE.

    Secondly, that info is so irrelevant is hurts my eyes. If the UK leaves the EU, competition for places will fall and that of course will reduce the quality of the system.

    What makes you think lecturers at universities can't speak English?!

    hey aren't you that greek guy who's in UK to study and famously said on this forum that you would return to greece after you complete your studies to try to solve the financial ruin that your home country Greece is in? how's that plan going about so far? it's so nice to see you here. anyways I wish you all the best of luck. who knows, you could be Greece's PM one day, long long after Alexis Tsipras has done enough damage.

    I have listened to all the video recordings of law lectures from Kings, UCL, LSE, Queen Mary and SOAS. Kings was by far the best in terms of accent, lecture delivery, lecturer's ability to engage with the students from time to time, timely breaks and much more.

    I've never trusted the opinions of the members on this forum because many of them are college students who are naive, bound to listen to people who give them false info and as a result, these college students perpetuate these false info and after sometime, they believe it to be true.
    Spoiler:

    as you know this forum has many members who are pakistani muslims. so if you create a thread or post anything that may make them feel insecure, they will gang up and report you and you will be banned.

    i'll give you an example. I'm German and a long time lurker on this forum. On several occasions in the past, many of these people would gang up together and reported any member for creating threads or posting replies on immigration issues.

    As a result of their insecurities, many, many people on this forum got banned for merely questioning the policy decisions linked to immigration/migration such as the one made by my Chancellor to allow all these migrants into my country
    1) without checking if they are holding genuine passports
    2) without checking if they have links to terrorist groups
    3) without checking if they have criminal records in their home countries
    4) without checking if they have HIV/AIDS

    Now that these migrants have turned Europe upside down, these very same people on the forum have on my occasions called for these migrants to be stopped at any cost. Do you see the U-turn?

    I hope all of you reading my post, bears this in mind. A country's sovereignty, security and safety of its citizens is so so important. With Merkel's blunder, we have become a carbon copy of UK & the rest of EU and their set of problems.
    anyways returning to law unis, like i've mentioned before I don't give a damn about rankings and reputation of the uni. what I want to know is if
    1) I can understand the lecturer's accent
    2) Is the lecturer any good or is he/she just talking gibberish for 3 hours at a stretch?
    3) Is the lecturer able to teach and lengthen my attention span with his/her lecture content?
    4) Is the lecturer able to answer questions and not say 'oh, can I get back to you later on this as I will need to check the info/I have forgotten' but guess what? Later never comes!

    Don't worry about UK pulling out of Europe, it would take years and anyway the UNI lobby or government would not allow the international business to be ruined by kicking out the lecturers. The same reason why USA doesn't kick out all the Brit professors who are helping to keep USA at the forefront of international Education business.

    Firstly, I don't think I said I'm gonna fix all of Greece's problems. I did say I want to get back and contribute, and thanks for your wishes, but I doubt I can do much more.

    Secondly, I doubt that matters much in terms of programme quality. The fact that someone speaks more clearly or that they make good jokes doesn't mean they are necessarily better than someone who doesn't.

    Where did you find all the recordings though?

    I don't know really. I think it went better than the practice ones but then again you can never be too sure with multiple choice questions. The essay was a bit dodgy though...

    Did any KCL applicants send their LNAT ID number to the university through email or the KIng's portal? I'm wondering whether I should do this or not because I've just seen a message on the portal which asked me to send my LNAT number, only this was sent to me two days before I sat my LNAT exam so they hadn't received my results from Pearson at that time!
