They both have the same course structure and links with pro bono clinics- similar opportunities. But ive read a lot of negatives about reading on TSR and a lot of bad student comments online for the teaching of brunel? Anyone done law at reading?

Hi sophspark,

Have you considered studying Law at Coventry University? If pro-bono clinics are an important factor in your decision-making process, you should definitely have a look! I graduated from Law myself and was involved in a benefits appeal clinic run with Coventry Law Centre. It is a unique legal clinic, whereas you interview clients whose applications for social benefits were rejected, write submissions and represent your clients in the tribunal! It was a really amazing opportunity for me to enhance my interviewing, presentation and drafting skills.

We also run Employment Law clinic in cooperation with magic circle law firm - Allen & Overy and immigration clinic. Pro bono clinics are really a key pillar of our Law School and new projects being introduced to keep providing opportunities to students.

I hope the above has sparked your interest! You can find out more about our Law degree on the website (https://www.coventry.ac.uk/course-st.../law-llb-hons/) but please feel free to also ask us any questions here on The Student Room!

Kind regards,

Hi,
thank you for the response. I was previously considering coventry, however i cannot move out just yet therefore the distance is too much.
Thank you so much though, those opportunities sound so rewarding.

Reading would be better. Way more respected and prestigious than brunel. If your not going for Russell Group then either Reading, Sussex or Kent are good. Any other university for law if not RG or these 3 are just mediocre or not very good or respected. I think also Reading hosts one of the largest pro bono opportunities in terms of universities in the UK

There are other good unis for Law such as Lancaster and Leicester but I agree with Reading before Brunel

I did my LLB at Brunel and really enjoyed it. There are some great lecturers there and they have good relationships with practicing solicitors and barristers to be able to offer good professional extra curricular activities that I’ve found great to put on my CV. I would say it is particularly focused on more commercial/corporate areas though so keep that in mind.

If you have any specific questions then feel free to reach out to me.

I think that I’d add that ranking aren’t that important to firms. It is more important how well you do in the degree and work experience/extra curricular activities. People in my year have gone on to train at magic circle and US law firms so Brunel’s lower ranking hasn’t held them back.

A level grades can also be important considering many firms have minimum A level requirements
