So I am really interested in studying law at uni and was just wondering which unis are the best for law. Obviously Cambridge and Oxbridge are the tops unis for law, but excluding that what other unis are good? I am interested in becoming a solicitor and securing a training contract with a Magic Circle Law firm in the future. I know that they tend to aim for Russell Group Universities, but is there a ranking? I looked online to see the rankings, however they are all different so I can't really use those.
If anyone is studying law at a particular Russell Group Uni, do you have any advice for a student like me?

For magic circle, pick some of the following:
LSE, UCL, KCL, Durham, Bristol, Leeds, Exeter, Nottingham, Warwick. Leeds, Exeter, Nottingham and Warwick will be harder to get an MC training contract from imo, but it’s most certainly doable providing your marks and CV are good. The others will put you in a good position for an MC training contract

As Johnny indicated, this information is wrong. I wouldn’t make such generalisations unless you’ve got hard evidence to back it up as it just spreads misinformation based on personal experience/feelings.

I’ve attended plenty of interviews, assessment centres and vacation schemes and I’ve never seen or heard any information to suggest that Exeter, Leeds, Nottingham or Warwick would put you at a disadvantage. In fact, one of my good friends attended Warwick and received 3 MC offers.

You’ll likely see more of some unis than others but I don’t think that’s necessarily due to the university itself, but more as a result of the average calibre of students who come from those universities.
