whats the point of studying law at non-Russell group uni??Watch
Student life, in partnership with UEA
I am not a law student, but is it not possible to get a decent job at a non-top firm?
*if* there seems to be a disproportionate amount of RG graduates at said firms it's probably because they were the better applicant, has a better CV and a better interview - not because the employer has a list of RG unis on their desk and the applicant ticked the right box of attending an RG. it may be disproportionate as well because those firms get a disproportionate amount of RG grads who actually apply because those are the kids who want the job and believe they can compete for it. correlation =/= causation so i wouldn't listen to rumours that firms actually care or study which unis fall under RG.
what's the point of attending a non-RG is a hard question to answer because it might be the student doesn't care about RG, couldn't get into one or preferred whatever uni they had chosen. at my old law firm the office was full of non-RG grads (in fact i was like the only RG student) so there must be a point in going to one so long as you build your CV (but no, it wasn't a MC firm; it was mid-to-large size).
