Graduate LLB - Glasgow or Exeter? Watch
I was wondering if any of you had any advice when it comes to choosing between the University of Glasgow and University of Exeter for Law?
My goal is to become a Barrister (I know that its tricky if you didn't go to Oxbridge) but I am trying nonetheless. I already have a first degree from a U.S. university so I will be doing the Graduate LLB program at the school I choose.
I have heard that people generally find Glasgow to have a nicer environment/people are happier there but at the same time, Exeter has a better reputation for getting students into good chambers in London. I want to maximize my chances of getting a good pupilage.
Any input would be greatly appreciated
I do have some qualms about the Glasgow common law course (which I presume you're talking about). Glasgow obviously mainly teaches Scots law; its academics are generally concerned with Scots law. At an English uni, you tend to get more established and leading English law academics teaching you.
Your undergrad degree carries some of the rep. If you managed to get a good grade at a good uni, then your life is a bit easier.
