I believe they train their lawyers throughly and see how much they can bench every week. Dont be surprised when you get your reading list it will be extensive and you will be expected to keep benching textbooks and law reports whilst social distancing. One of the stringets law faculties in Nottingham.
Exactly what does it mean for a university to be "strong" in its law department? Does it count on the league table? Or consistency on the league table? Or the faculty (i.e.credentials of lecturers, tutors)? Or difficulty of course? Or entry requirements? Or whether the faculty houses some major law textbook authors?
There is no set definition of 'strong'. Every person cares about different aspects of a faculty. For me, 'strength' would come through adding academic value - i.e. how good at teaching the faculty is, how well they enrich the students' broader understanding of law, etc. Adding careers value is another 'strength' if that value isn't something that can be found online or isn't something that anyone at any university can access. But opinions can vary.
I wouldn't judge a university based on raw outputs (e.g. % of students in employment or further education), because these are influenced primarily by things outside its control.
