    I have looked up the league table and university ranking for law. Oxford Brookes university according to the guardian is ranked 16th for law and the complete university guide rank Oxford Brookes university 44th for law. I want to know what you guys think of the university. Also which do you think would be best for law out of Oxford Brookes university, university of Huddersfield, University Of Salford, MMU and university of Bradford.

    Thank you

    I was thinking that the University of Huddersfield was quite good for law and it's closer to where i live. Also it's better than all the others i had mentioned excluding Oxford Brookes university. I would prefer to go to a university that is closer to home and is also quite good for law at the same time and the University of Huddersfield seems to fit that.

    What do you think?

    i agree with what squeaky said. if you want to be a solicitor, you'll need to go to a better university for law. i'd recommend working hard this year to get AAB+ then you can apply next year for russell group universities.

    Ultimately, just go where you'd be happiest.

    Unfortunately, most law firms will not care which of those unis you go to - they wouldn't consider any of them to be good enough. The league tables are irrelevant, as most law firms have their own idea of what a good university for law is: http://www.chambersstudent.co.uk/med...university.pdf

    In many ways though, that kind of makes your decision simpler. Seeing as the reputation won't matter, you should go to the one you'd be happiest at. Which is your favourite course? How far from home do you want to be? Do you like the location of the uni? Make your decision based off of these factors, not on league tables or reputation - they aren't going to matter for the unis you're looking at.

    If that's your favourite one, then yea, go for Huddersfield.

    Just remember that in the eyes of employers, it's not "good for law". If you want to break into anything bigger than a high street firm, you're gonna have to do a lot of hard work at university to make up for it. Get the best A Levels you can (many firms still filter by UCAS points), work towards a first class honours, and get involved with societies and work experience. Then you might make up for the relatively weak university.

    Anyway, yes, if Huddersfield is your favourite, then go there.

    Thank you, Chuck hades for the help. I'm glad to know that going to a university that is not a Russell group won't hinder my chances to become a solicitor or to work in a law firm. By the way I'm interested in criminal law.
