Difference, in terms of Law is negligible. Durham is more prestigious overall. Durham is of course made up of colleges (like the Oxbridge setup); Nottingham on the other hand is of course in a city, so accommodation is scattered like most unis. I'd personally go for Durham, but that's just me.

I'd also go for Durham, on the basis that it's slightly more prestigious, is regarded as the 'Oxbridge of the North', is very pretty, is the 3rd oldest university in England, has a collegiate system and I believe offers college accommodation for all three years now.

However, Nottingham is a very good university too, plus it's in a bigger city. Durham night life is not as good as Nottingham's, and you'd have to go to Newcastle for something comparable. Plus, Nottingham is a self-contained MASSIVE campus, which could be more suited to you?

The accommodation is by no means spread out in Nottingham. All the catered halls are on a giant, beautiful campus (considered to be one of the best, if not the best, campus in the UK) and the main self catered halls are a few minutes walk from the campus. There is some spread out accommodation but the vast vast majority is on or near campus. Furthermore, it is most definitely a campus university, not a city university. It is on the outskirts of the city, not in it.

Durham is indeed more prestigious overall, but not to a point where it really makes any difference at all. Both are great universities, and both have great Law departments.

Go with whichever you prefer, OP.

Fair one, cheers for pointing that out, can't say I know a lot about the Nottingham setup myself. Was mainly trying to point out to the OP, that Nottingham does not have the college set up, like Durham does.
