    Any advice is appreciated.

    I have been accepted to Glasgow and Bristol for the two year law degree. My situation is a little unique as I am Canadian in his mid forties with a family. I currently work in the tax field (Tax Manager) of a large company here in Canada and am considering staying in the UK once my degree is completed and pursuing a career in tax law (I have a UK passport). Would Glasgow or Bristol be a better location to jump start a career in tax law? If I was required to move to London, which university would have a more favourable rating? Thanks in advance for any responses.

    Although I'm by no means an expert on either course, you need to check whether one is based on English Law and the other Scottish Law, and how that might impact your ability to work in the profession in either country.

    Depends on where you want to practise, as the law of the two countries is vastly different. If you want to practise in Scotland, go for Glasgow, but if you want to practise in England or Wales, go to Bristol. If you want to transfer to London, going to Bristol would be a necessity, unless you want to waste money retraining after time at Glasgow.

    Bristol if you wanna practice in England and Wales, Glasgow if you want to practice in Scotland. I'm sure that the principles overlap between the two systems on a number of issues, even though there's obviously a divergence in the relevant cases and statutory provision for either jurisdiction (e.g. the labelling of homicide law in Scotland v that in England)
