    Hey there! Unfortunately I cannot really advise you on that... of course universities like Cambridge or Oxford would get students better, possibly sometimes undeserved opportunities because of the name or title.

    But I have only heard great things about this course and the department of Law at Brighton do everything possible to enrich your studies and open doors for opportunity. If you graduate with some experience, extra curricular, great advocacy skills and top marks for the whole 3 years - then how can someone tell you that you are not good enough!

    There is an organisation, called Aspiring Solicitors - started by a student who attended Brighton University in recent years. Graduates from Brighton Uni, Law/Business course have approached him for help with CVs etc and a lot of them have succeeded in getting really good jobs at excellent law firms up and down the country.

    I suppose some firms may not 'respect' the Brighton course because the entry requirements aren't tough enough.. luckily I am quite a few grade levels above them! But I love Brighton and I am attending university for a complete experience, somewhere you will live for at least 3 years of your life. So even though somewhere like Glasgow may have a good Law course, I would never study there even it was free and paid for.

    The top rated universities, for Law are all rated on a whole range of different things. I believe that no matter where you study, if YOU want to do well and get recognised for being excellent at what you do, then only you can control your success in the long run.

    Sorry that I can only offer opinion!

    Over the next few weeks, you might get some more replies here to help answer your question!
