    Is it more recognized compared to Leicester?
    City university is an average UK university, it usually ranks in most rankings somewhere in the 30-40 range. Leicester usually ranks in the 20-30 range. So Leicester seems to rank a bit higher. However, in terms of entry criteria they rank very closely at around 30th place. Source: http://exquisitelife.researchresearc...versities.html

    City gained its Royal Charter in 1966 and is a plate glass university. Leicester gained its Royal Charter in 1957 and belongs to the second wave of civic universities (like Reading, Nottingham, Southampton, Hull, Exeter).

    City university recently joined the university of London. This should further increase the reputation of the university. Source: http://www.city.ac.uk/university-of-London

    City has a world renowned Business School, Cass. It is very strong in Business and Management subjects.

    In terms of Law City demands 29 IB points were as Leicester 34. So if you assume that entry points are a good indication of how good a university is, then Leicester seems to be better in Law.

    So overall, in terms of Law there does not seem to be a great difference between Leicester and City. The rankings and entry criteria give a slight better picture for Leicester.

    Granted City does have a good business school (CASS), my cousin went there for his masters and got to the final stage interviews at Goldman Sachs. He works for a major oil company in the Middle East now. For Law I would put Leicester well above City.

    This guide to which there is a thread about recently in TSR will show Leicester to be a much better option;
