    Are there any universities other than the London universities which law firms target for law?

    Russell group are the obvious ones, but I’m not even sure that is important. An open day I was at recently at a big US firm the trainees that spoke to us were law graduates from Leicester and Lincoln, neither of which are prestigious.

    That said this was just one firm.

    Leicester, in particular, is very well respected for law. Leicester is 1994 group rather than Russell Group, but still an 'old' university (i.e. pre-1992 uni).
