I know there are many of these threads, but I am torn

Which is the better law school? I imagine Liverpool is a better city, I've spent a considerable amount of time in Exeter and it has a total of like 4 clubs and bars :/ However, if Exeter is a considerably better law school, then it'd be worth it.

Exeter is certainly a better law school than Liverpool. Personally, I'd go to Exeter; I've only ever heard good things about its Law department and the facilities the universities has to offer. Go where you'll be happier.

I reiterate my stance; Exeter, but Liverpool is by no means far inferior mind you. Yes, you might argue Liverpool being more traditional, red-brick etc, but they still lag behind universities like Manchester and Birmingham in that sense for law. Also, being in the Russell Group does not mean that it is in the top 20 or so universities in the UK. It is a misconception; The RG is a group listing the largest research-intensive universities. By comparison, if you look at league tables in general, you may find more 1994 Group universities, like Exeter, Leicester in the top 20. As far as I am concerned, Exeter has a solid reputation and is pretty well regarded in law. If you asked me personally, I would opt for Exeter. The City of Liverpool being more "prestigious" is open to debate. To each his own and some might like the peaceful and picture-esque campus of Exeter, especially the Cornwall campus. Hope that answers your query.

Exeter is always mentioned as one of the top law schools in the uk and it is a misconception that it has very few bars and clubs. It is a very much a student town with more than you need to have a good time. Added that it is in a very nice part of the country...for me this would be a very easy choice. But if you enjoy the 'hustle and bustle' of a city then choose Liverpool. It must be where ever you feel the most comfortable and at home.

Exeter is the better department, but Liverpool is by no means bad.

Exeter is in Devon, very small town. Has a rep for being full of posh beautiful people from the Home counties.

Liverpool is a big city, big nightlife and associated scene. I believe the girls going out with the hair rollers started there.

Go where you will feel comfortable - they are very different University environments and different cities.
Liverpool - big vibrant city, close to other big cities, and older city campus Uni, diverse student population.
Exeter - smaller place deep in the West Country, modern campus outside town, more 'select' student types.
Look for the Campus Tour films on YouTube - and look for the tourist films for each city as well.
Where will you feel happiest?
