Oxford, Cambridge, Durham and Bristol have good reps. UCL, Nottingham and Warwick pretty good.

Hi,
You can look at the university league tables and that will give you a general sense of which are the best performing universities for law are in the UK. Typically it would be Oxbridge and London unis at the top then mid tier would be the other Russell Group universities and at the lower end would be city universities.

There are plenty of youtube videos that will help you decide on which university is best for you so I suggest you check those out. What I would recommend is picking a university that will suit what you want out of your degree. So do things like check out the modules and see which uni has the most appealing selection. Also look at what type of university life you want, campus, city, etc. That sort of thing. But yeah, I seriously recommend you go on youtube and watch videos because they will be more extensive. Good luck.

Generally speaking, if the uni requires the LNAT, it's a good uni.

No, not most. Only the top ones! Bristol, Durham, Glasgow, KCL, LSE, Nottingham, Oxford, SOAS and UCL.

Note my 'generally speaking' in my previous message.

Although I would argue that it is better than quite a few of the unis in the UK though - not going to mention names....

A rough ranking would look broadly like this
1. Cambridge/Oxf*rd
2. LSE/UCL
3. Durham/Bristol
4. KCL
5. Nottingham/Warwick
6. Exeter/Leeds
7. Most Russell Groups
8. Less prestigious Russell Groups eg QUB or Southampton. Liverpool is also not as highly regarded for law.
9. Any non RG

Generally speaking as long as you have at least a 2:1 from a Russell Group you should be okay. If you want a magic circle/US firm training contract then you’ll probably have to look higher up the table

Difficult to say, as it’s usually not a good idea to go to Scottish universities if you’re intending to practice in England as they teach Scots law which doesn’t qualify you to practice in England
