    Hi everyone,

    If you refer to my previous threads you will see that I am looking at doing a law degree to become a solicitor but I suffer with various medical conditions which make exams difficult for me (I cant sit for long periods of time, nor can I remember and regurgitate information well currently whilst coming off and going back on lots of tablets). So, this has lead to me trying to find universities that are largely coursework based. I know York is, and I believed Bedfordshire is as well, but York is a long way away and Bedfordshire is unlikely to be a Magic Circle enticing university for my CV, so any suggestions for others would help. Preferably the closer to London the better, and I would love to be able to study Aviation Law during the degree as well. I have D*D*D Aviation Operations Extended Diploma (wanted to be a pilot but can't for medical reasons, so have turned to something else I have an interest in) so I know I can't get into Birmingham, Oxbridge etc, but any suggestions are appreciated greatly.

    Thanks

    Dont think theres an easy way to get that information other than doing your own research.

    Start with Russell group, then draw up a table identifying % of course work and which ones have an aviation module (not many). Its only going to be a very limited number as most dont do aviation or offer susbstantial coursework (other than a dissertation). there are also very few firms which do aviation law. I suspect you are going to have to compromise and decide which aspect is most important to you. Maybe you should look into distance earning as well.
