I've seen some data showing the percentage of partners that attended which universities. I saw Exeter ranked rather highly on there however it seems odd. being how competitive law is i find it weird that Exeter with a 98% offer rate is beating out the likes of Bristol and Nottingham for recruitment to firms, simply since the university admissions process is part of the reason why Cambridge graduates are dominant in firms. Was Exeter much more respected in the past when the partners were recruited perhaps? And whilst we are on this topic, out of Bristol, Nottingham and UCL which would you personally recommend as the best for graduate prospects (particularly to US and MC firms)

I ask since i'm applying to uni in the coming months so its important to me, don't take this as any kind of "Elitism", I know all these universities provide great prospects.

Not much of a gap between Bristol and Nottingham, as compared to UCL (I think Bristol is better in terms of opportunities and their Law Society is bigger, stronger, etc. However, it's also incredibly competitive to get committee positions there and it may be slightly easier to get positions of responsibility in Nottingham. Also, Nottingham has more commercial law modules which may be attractive on paper).

Regarding the partnership representation stat - that doesn't really mean anything to someone entering the industry now. You should be looking at the junior demographic, if anything - in which case, Exeter does worse than UCL, Bristol and Nottingham.
