Hi,
What universities are the best for law in the U.K.? Which would give me the best chance of getting a top job as a lawyer or barrister in the future ? Is there much difference between Cambridge and Oxford in terms of job prospects after the degree?
I was also just wondering (as I have always been torn between law and medicine) if anyone has any particular pros and cons of each profession?
Thank you!

Oxbridge and then its grade.

They are different professions. Do work experience in both to understand how they work and what sort of lifestyle and work challenges will suit you.

You've been watching too much American TV where both professions are ridiculously over-glamorised. If you're 'torn between' two extremely different career paths, you don't know that much about them at all and aren't really interested in either of them.
