The thing is, you seem to just be targeting those Unis because you have heard they are prestigious rather than because you know anything about them. That is not a very mature way of choosing a uni but I see from another post that you haven’t picked your GCSEs yet so that is understandable.

At your stage, all you need to worry about is working hard at school and getting good grades. It may or may not be appropriate for you to be aiming for those sort of Unis - no way of knowing this far in advance whether you will end up being an A*AA student at A level.

If you do end up finding GCSEs easy and know that you can aim for the top Unis, the way to ascertain the differences between Oxbridge and the top London Unis is to visit them. They will feel very different to you and you can answer for yourself which type of environment you prefer. People generally start to visit Unis in the Autumn term of year 12 but you could also fit in a cheeky Open Day or two in the summer term of Year 11 if you are keen to start your research early

Are you asking about law, or jurisprudence (philosophy of law)? The answer is not necessarily the same. Oxford is very strong in the philosophy of law, with Cambridge and KCL somewhat distantly beyond it for that particular area of academia. However for law itself, Oxford and Cambridge are both very strong, with UCL and LSE also top courses, among others.

As above the differences are somewhat irrelevant at this point if you are still in your GCSEs - focus on doing well in your GCSEs and then again doing very well in year 12. I would note even if you do more poorly in GCSEs that doesn't necessarily restrict your ability to go to a "top" law course (Cambridge for example don't care much about GCSEs on the whole). It would obviously be best to do as well in them as possible now though, so better to focus your energy on your current studies and worry about which universities to apply to when you get towards the end of year 12.
