    Hello, I'm currently deciding on which University to go to to study the CPE, which are the more reputable CPE/GDL unis? Do employers consider this important when hiring for training contracts?

    Any replies from law students and graduates would be much appreciated...

    That's what I was led to believe too. The only thing I would investigate is which places are semesterised and will therefore examine half the course in Feb. I think a lot of places do, but I'm being examined on the entire course within a fortnight next month - just a bit stressful!
