Hopefully 2020. I’m in year 13 and I have booked an open day but I really wanted an outsiders opinion first.

Lancaster LLB vacancies BBB
Queens Uni Belfast LLB ABC/BBB
Surrey LLB vacancies at BBB/BBC
Sussex LLB vacancies at BBC
Kent LLB vacancies at BBC/BCC UEA, RHUL, Keele, Hull LLB vacancies (grades not known)
Reading reportedly went down to BCD
Keele LLB vacancies at BBC
Sheffield LLB vacancies at AAA/AAB
Sheffield Hallam BBC
QMUL indicative grade requirement of AAA
SOAS LLB BBB/BBC
City Uni LLB BBC/BCC
Aston LLB Law & Management BBC
Oxford Brookes LLB 96 UCAS points

oh my gosh. I want to marry you now. Thank you sooo much.
I’m from Birmingham so I’m looking for something near. Leicester’s website does say A’s as well but I’ll make sure to find out more on the open day. Thank you once again.

Leicester were advertising BBB for Law in Clearing on their own website and the "reportedly" refers to a TSR member who posted that they had been accepted onto the LLB there with ABD.

Aston's BBC for the LLB in Law & Mangagement was also listed on their own website

Hi there!
Have you considered the University of Kent for law at all? Their current entry requirements are AAA-ABB so could potentially fit with your predicted grades. As harrysbar has said though, the clearing grades for this year were around the BBC mark. Kent is in the top 20 universities in the country for law as well so it could be a good option for you
If you're interested in Kent at all then (as with any uni you're looking at!) I'd really recommend checking it out on an open day as it's the best way to get a feel for a university. Kent has a couple coming up this October I'll leave the link to the LLB information page here incase you'd like to take a look!

Good luck with your university decisions and applications

Don't. The former head of the LL.B. has left this 'train crash' that he made and fled to be Dean of Business and Law at Hull.

Avoid the disaster: Apply/accept elsewhere.

Hi,

Thank you for considering studying Law at Coventry University!

I am a recent LLB International Law graduate. I did three years of studies at Coventry Law School and a year-long legal placement at Volvo Group UK. I really loved my time at Coventry University! Lecturers and tutors were always very helpful and took time to explain what I did not understand. They reply to emails promptly, have weekly surgery hours and are keen on scheduling an extra meeting if needed.

What I enjoyed the most about Coventry Uni were employability opportunities - our Law School prioritises clinical legal education and we have many pro bono legal clinics where students can volunteer. I, for instance, volunteered in the welfare benefits appeals clinic run with Coventry Law Centre. We also run Business Law Clinic, Immigration Law clinic and Employment Law clinic in cooperation with magic circle law firm Allen & Overy. Those are great opportunities to enhance your skills and apply what you learnt!

Coventry Law School also offers year-long placements which are still rare amongst other Law Schools. Those are great opportunities to build your CV and gain some experience. Our students do placements at Shoosmiths, DAC Beachcroft, legal department of Volvo Group UK and many others!

In all honesty, Law is a tough degree and legal industry is a competitive market regardless of University you graduate from. You need to be dedicated to pursuing a career of your choice and put the work in to get there! But Coventry University provides you with the support to succeed. I, for instance, come from underrepresented background and as a Coventry University student managed to get a training contract with an international law firm before starting my final year at Uni.

I hope you find it helpful. Please let me know if you have any other questions! We also have a virtual open day on 10 October - it is a great opportunity to learn more about the course and speak with lecturers and current students. You can sign up here: https://www.coventry.ac.uk/study-at-...our-open-days/

Kind regards,

Monika
