What’s the general view on the university of Liverpool for law? Given I do well, do placements etc will I be at a disadvantage of an equally strong candidate who went to say Manchester instead?

well most likely yes.

liverpool might be stripped of it's russell group status soon. not that the russell group status matters as much, just the fact that the unis been underperforming massively and they still have the audacity to demand us AAB in our offers gurlbah we're escalating to #oxford.

i mean....if you want to pursue a career in law then would you want to do a masters at all when you could directly apply to do the LPC and progress into your career in law?

it's up to you, if you like the university go ahead and apply to it, the issue is lots of law firms do target certain students from universities and not only because of the reputation but because the uni has stronger connections so they can help with career fairs/graduate prospects i reckon. either way with the right determination you can get anywhere so take my words with a pinch of salt but if we're talking top firms then yes, if you can get into a higher uni e.g manchester, exeter, sheffield standard potentially it may do you favours. x

well manchester ranking 17th on the league tables with AAA entry requirements and liverpool at an immense drop of 33-40th suggests otherwise hun. manchester is actually accredited on a global scale compared to liverpool which is unknown and on the irrelevant side of the uni/prospect scale.

the challenge i made is that graduates from liverpool are less likely to be employed into city firms than manchester.

russell group or not, there are far better universities out there. this thread exists for a reason. one has low entry requirements and the other does not. one is a third-tier university and the other is not.

league tables may not wholly decide whether or not a person thrives in the real world but they're the first indicator.

for someone to even get into a good university for law they'd need good a-levels which an applicant at manchester is much more likely to have; thus making someone from manchester a more competitive applicant when applying to city firms?? proved by graduate prospects. i'm not saying a graduate at liverpool can't do well but ....to keep it #real.

yeah because ABB entry requirements for liverpool really portrays qualities of a top notch high-ranking russell group university and an attractive choice for people who literally want to be seen as 'competitive applicants' in comparison to others.

lower degree results = lower on league tables = less applicants = lower entry requirements = less competitive university

You can’t get A*AA at AS, the highest grade is an A.

The difference between LSE and Liverpool is huge. It between Manc and Liverpool, you’ll realise soon it’s tiny.
