I often see people here say along the lines that ‘studying law is pointless if you don’t go to a top 10 university.’

What exactly are the top 10 universities for law in the UK?

I dont see that many threads about it being pointless and they would be wrong.
There are numerous threads on the best and you can use google or the search function.
What you will find is theres no definitive list, but the same pool of about 15 unis are used.
There is less debate about who might be in the top 6 and then people tend to differ about who comes after.

They're quoting the Guardian law rankings -- Guardian which is well known to be the worst rankings going.

To OP, the 10 or done is wrong for the above reasons. Who even knows what the top 10 are.

Nah, I was thinking of kiki.

B'ham is an alright choice depending on what sort of employers you want to be getting your attention from. But it's not like you can choose to magically improve your grades; you play the hand you've dealt yourself.

Different universities get different amounts of attention from different law firms and sets depending on their status, location, and selectivity in picking out undergrads.

SO by going to uni of bham, I wouldn't get a job?is that what ur saying?
I considered applying to queen Mary but they want like 6 A's or b's at gcse and I didn't get that as well as kings but I never liked kings.
I'm also thinking Leicester but that's not a Russel group uni

Queen Mary is known to be quite lenient with their entry requirement so all hope is not yet lost. Higher A levels might put you back in the game.

Poor Kings :ashamed2:

Do you like Leicester? If you do then apply. It is a reputable university and you will work better in an environment that you genuinely like. It would not be wise to overly scrutinise the 'Russellgroup' title

Don't listen to this, its bad advice. UEA and Dundee shouldn't be on this list. Also the order is wrong.

I didn't, I'm asking did he mean that.

Really? I mean I phoned the lady and she said u can still apply but priority will be given to those higher achieving students and with Law, which is very competitive, it's likely my GCSE's will put me behind.

Poor Kings :ashamed2:

I haven't been to Leicester yet(or any open uni days :P) but my teacher's sister went there and now she's doing her training contract to become a solicitor, so she said it's really good.
But Bham and Leicester for me are at the top of my list.

No, you don't get a job by being thick and having bad grades. I'll give ya a hint: that's where your area of focus and improvement should be.
