There doesn't appear to be much in it soI would go with your personal preference. In my case that would be Sheffield because I aren't much for Brum anyway. Both are very well respected institutions though.

Sheffield was top 10 last year its only dropped down because some of its teaching assessments are out of date (or thats what it said in the Guardian guide anyway). Its a traditional red brick uni so really not much less established than Brum and its also in the Russell group as is Brum. I would say they are pretty much on a par so it is down to which place you like best.

Yeah i imagine that would be the case. But i just found the jefferson one the best out of all the law texts that i have used for crim law. The ones written by oxbridge types ive found really dry, such as the padfield ones. Tho i realise this is just one area of law. Ive not come across any written by any Brum lecturers yet...............

Tell me about it alot of my texts are by oxbridge people and they are so unbelievably boring also have you noticed that people who write law texts generally have bad spelling and grammar which bugs me. Oh well one of the side effects of having an English degree I suppose
