    Hey everyone, hope you're all having a good evening

    So I have received offers from Southampton and Sheffield which are two universities that I really wanted to go to! So i am extremely pleased

    However, I am now at a dilemma. I really like both universities, and their law schools are both fantastic. However, I am finding it difficult to decide which one would be better for :

    A. Teaching and professors and support from teaching staff.

    B. Reputation of the universities themselves (which I know both have good reputations!)

    C. Graduate prospects (how many graduates are able to secure training contracts within a year of graduating)

    D. A question for current law students at either two; how enjoyable are the modules?

    Thank you so much for answering!

    I would choose Southampton for its commercial expertise. I can't really advise on the teaching or graduate destinations; they are equally reputable.

    Thank you so much for replying! I was informed by someone that, unfortunately, Southampton's law school is underfunded and apparently not doing great?

    All law schools are under-funded. I wouldn't put too much stock in what a disgruntled student has to say, which might seem paradoxical. But a) they have studied elsewhere to know that elsewhere is any better -- "under-funded" implies they know the right funding level b) there's disgruntled students at LSE, Bristol, QMUL -- and there will be many happy students there too. Naturally, the p*ssed off student is going to give you a negative review.

    I know many people who have studied and indeed someone who lectures at the school, and they are largely positive. It is a nice city too, which I would recommend you visit.
