    I have applied to UCAS already, but like u all know, I have a few days to change my choices if I like… I would like your opinions about my university choices to do a law degree in the uk. My chosen universities are

    1. Manchester
    2. Liverpool
    3. Sheffield
    4. Durham
    5. Nottingham
    6. Leicester

    The problem is, since I don’t live in the uk, or haven’t really lived there for long periods of time, I would really appreciate your opinions on how the places are like to live in, the social life, the university itself, any experiences u would like to share, and any other suggestions of where to study. My predicted grades are 2 A’s and 1 B! and I do 3 A levels… thanks for all the advice in advance

    Yeah I've got an offer from Keele for Law and Politics. Sounds like a nice place, but I've never been there before- so it's my 6th choice.

    If you were to get the grades, I'd say Notts and Manc, perhaps alongside Durham were the best, academically that is. Overall Uni, Notts is the best (i.e. better across the board, not only in law). Durham is quiet, they think they're a lot better than they actually are, but it is fairly well regarded. Manchester has been very good for law traditionally, it's set to merge (may want to read up on the effect that's likely to have). Although, does seem as though Manchester isn't a particularly 'talked about' university in academic circles anymore. Liverpool is a scary place, Sheffield too full of peculiar people and lots of industry. Lesta is full of semi serious dossers, i.e. even worse.

    Ah well, that covers them all! All the best.

    I avoided Durham for mainly those reasons and the teaching system. Saying that though, its respected Uni for Law.
