I’m really stuck as to where I want to go.
I’ve visited UCL many times, having lived in London. I know that it has a very high rep so going there would be really good in terms of employment opportunities. I also know that it being in London means that law firms can visit for networking opportunities which can help me secure a training contract early. However, i’m also interested in Bristol as I know that it is also very highly regarded and that lots of Bristol graduates work in London law firms. I like that it is in a city and that I can live independently from my parents, but if I chose to go to UCL, I couldn’t do that.

I don’t know what to do; someone help me! I want to go somewhere, where I can get the best job prospects as I know that securing a training contract is very hard.

It depends what your priority is.
If you want to study outside of London and live far away from your family- go with Bristol.
If you want to stay in London- go with UCL.

It is worth remembering that if you stay at home you may be able to save a considerable sum that would otherwise go on rent.
This could be really helpful in the post-Brexit environment.

A good degree is still a good degree- it's ambitious networking, raising your profile in the legal field and establishing good contacts that will be the most helpful when it comes to securing a training contract.

I don’t what it is I want. Also home is overcrowded, so I think that living out will be nice but scary.

Go with your gut instinct, you only get to be an undergraduate student once.
I chose to stay in London but moved away from my parents and didn't give them my address to protect my privacy.
There's a higher maintenance loan available for students living away from their family home.

Best of luck.

You didn't give your parents your address to protect your privacy? Are they assassins; why would you need to guard your personal info from them?

My uncle had my address but knew not to share it with my parents and their revolutionary pals.
My parents were students of Labour's militant era, they both remain revolutionary socialists and hardcore trade unionists.

My maternal grandmother is an 80 year old religious fanatic who rants vile nonsense about the devil, sin and hell.
My mother almost always appeases her, knowing how she behaves.
My mother would pass on my address to anyone who asks her for it, she's done it with my phone number several times- always to jerks she knows I avoid.
