I mean, University of Leicester is a very good university, in particular for Law and Medicine. It provides plenty of courses and it’s more prestigious than other Russel Group’s universities. Its staff helps you with your future job and Leicester’s Law School is required in many London firms. In terms of Medicine, it is the third in UK for COVID 19 research and now it creates an innovative research partnership called Nairobi Alliance. The Queen visit the University too. I believe that it deserves to join Russel Group because it’s a good university and because of ranking too. Moreover other universities join Russel Group even though they don’t provide many important courses such as Law or Medicine. So I’d like to know what you think about it

Membership of the Russell Group isn't done on merit, (either course quality or subjective 'prestige'). There are outstanding unis outside the group and weaker ones within it. The RG is just an association of research-based unis with the objective of raising their profiles and marketing themselves. If Leicester thought there was benefit to joining, they would do so.
