    Are you sure it isn't Nottingham Trent University rather than the University of Nottingham? It's just that it doesn't really seem to match up with the other choices.

    There's some very good universities in your list. Forget the league tables though, they're a bastion of obfuscation and a convenient way for research intensive universities to look more attractive to undergraduates than they should (bearing in mind such institutions tend to lack tutors who actually prioritise the teaching).

    What matters is what works for you. If you are studying full time, I would recommend you consider these factors and I have ordered them by what I think should be your priorities:

    6) Location. Try and strike a balance between cheap accommodation and an environment that you're comfortable in (e.g. a city, a town, the countryside etc). Also, solicitors firms and barristers chambers in the regions often want to see a commitment to the local area to check you won't leave straight after training/pupillage.

    5) Quality of the library. My so called 'good' university had one copy of each book that was not much use for a course attended by over 100 students. Meanwhile, the OU has an excellent online library of texts and provides you with all the core text books you need.

    4) Cost. How much debt do you want to come away with?

    3) Future aspirations. Do you want to do an LLM or maybe pursue an academic career? Then keep your options open with a university with a good reputation for research. Want to be a barrister? Then choose a university that has a mooting society. Give thought to where you want to be and how your institution can help you. Manchester Metropolitan has a very strong mooting society for example.

    2) Areas of interest. If you want to work in law, which area do you want to specialise in and is this option offered by the universities you are applying to? Don't worry if you don't know yet, but if you do then consider this carefully.

    1) Employability. What are graduate employment figures like? You'd be surprised how little difference there is between some of the so called 'good' universities and the others.

    From the list you have provided and from my own research of the options, I would recommend these institutions, but only if you are still unsure after you have done your own research. I will admit to culling some based on price (I just don't think they can justify costing more than the others):

    4&5) Westminster and Central Lancashire, because both offer the option to study a minor which could be another string to your bow (e.g. study some politics if you want to go into public law).

    3) Manchester Metropolitan. I would actually recommend a distance learning degree where you also get CILEx graduate membership. You could study this whilst getting work experience; if you waited two years after graduating and got a CILEx fellowship, you might even be exempt from a training contract if you wanted to be a solicitor under the current rules.

    2) Nottingham Trent. A very well regarded law school.

    1) Northumbria. These guys to an exempting degree so you can role up an LPC or a BPTC into your LLB and will be training contract ready at the end of it.
