    what uni.com has reviews. i doubt there are many universities that don't offer a 'solid legal education', yet some people might make out that a student cant have a good legal career if they go to an 'ex-poly'. the top firms employ from a wide range of universities, although the majority of employees come from 'good' universities. civil sets tend to take on people from top unis and in criminal it's different. the top sets take on people from a wider range of universities.

    once a barrister or solicitor how well you do in law is in your hands, Michael Mansfield's a good example. there are trends - the top students go to places like UCL and they tend to do well there, and tend to be employed by top firms. that's not to say someone is at a disadvantage because of the university they attend - providing they do well. A levels are important in most graduate applications.

    westminster have a better choice of modules than BPP, although BPP offer the degree over two years.

    Very hard to say really because BPP is such a new law school. I suspect that the teaching and careers support are extremely good though, its a very professional operation, unlike most traditional unis.

    IMO you should probably make your decision more based on lifestyle than anything else.

    Agreed. Also agree that it depends on what you want from uni - the student lifestyle (traditional unis) or a fast-track to the LPC and employment (BPP).
