    So i've been given my offers for uni to study law at Southampton, sussex and UEA. With the sussex and UEA courses i would get to study a year abroad in america, which i thought may be useful if i wanted to work in america in the future.

    However, i realise that soton is a more respected uni so maybe it would be best to go there and study the normal law degree, which may give me a better chance of working in america.

    But from what i've heard, the only unis law firms in the US have heard of are oxbridge, so maybe theres no point in going to soton anyway so just do the course i really want?


    Sussex and UEA are still really good unis. Personally, out of all of them I'd go to Sussex.

    If you want to test your waters and try America for a year, I think a degree from Sussex and UEA will still be well respected.

    I don't really think it matters to be honest. In league tables, they are all roughly the same. I don't think a few places is really much to bother over. In some, Sussex is higher than Southampton, and some Southampton higher than Sussex. I think all 3 unis are good, so go with whichever course you like best.
