It is very odd that when Durham is well-known as an Oxford-reject/ Oxford-alternative university, some students would choose Bristol over it for law, and some also advises others to do that. Why is that so? Is it because Bristol is higher ranking overall internationally? But on the national league table for law Durham ranks as 10th whereas Bristol has fallen down to 19th? If international ranking matters, is Durham then on par with Nottingham for law, with Bristol being better than both of them, since both Durham and Nottingham are positioned around 10th in the national law league table, but close to 100 on the QS general ranking? Yet it feels iffy to give up Durham for Bristol?

The international rankings are based on research (quantity, not quality) so I really wouldn't go with that. However, on the national rankings, Durham is clearly better than Bristol, rest is up to you

Durham is not clearly better than Bristol in any real metric, choose which one suits you, Both will get you where you want to go, the rest is on you. Dont believe these other students that are speculating, ranking are simply rough guides...

You are better off researching which uni provides a more favourable fit, so that you can thrive and put your best foot forward academically.

Its not odd Bristol has an excellent reputation. Both are excellent & pretty similarly regarded.
