    They are both pretty decent. I don't know a great deal about Leeds but it has a good rep academically its solid but Exeter is more well known in the Russell Group. Look at the league tables, Exeter is 10 and Leeds is 19/or the guardians 9 to 23. For law though, they are both in very similar places.

    Facilities wise Exeter has just invested millions into the campus and has a fantastic (law)library.It also topped student satisfaction for all RG uni's in the UK during 2014, although accommodation could be better. I don't really know much about Leeds facilitates truthfully.

    Name recog with the public. This is totally subjective but Exeter is generally considered positively in ways a lot of normal/middle class students, it has a very sporty reputation and is great for people who love nature as there is lots around. Negatively, Exeter as city is very small and considered very boring by most as the night life is quite bad. Also there is a (very) small proportion of Eton/posh upper class snob prep types at Exeter which is off putting.

    By contrast Leeds is exciting and has a good rep for partying and cool kids to many which is great if your into it but unfortunately a lot of people associate this with drugs. Good shopping and accommodation there too. A lot less safer than Exeter as its wayyy bigger. As its a bigger city naturally its more multicultural ect than Exeter which can be insular but surprisingly have a large foreign student and asian community at the uni (people are speculating its because Exeter has the more "traditional" English experience with the architecture and countryside a lot of foreign students like)

    For grad prospects, there doesn't seem to be much variation between them either. Leed's was however one of the top 10 unis targeted by top employers in 2014-15. Personally, though Exeter's rep is getting better every year with employers and is well known
