More law resources on TSR
Hey guys, i've received offers to study Law at Coventry University and Aston University. Wondering which uni would be the best to go to. I live in Birmingham and plan to commute, not going to move out of home. Thanks for the answers in advance.
Congratulations on your offers! Those are both great schools and I hope you pick the best one for you. Here's some information that might help you make an informed decision.
The law degree at Aston University’s Law School has been designed with modern legal practice in mind, including real-world examples and practical opportunities, as there is a focus on the business of law, the future of law, and the law of business. The qualifying law degree will prepare you for the legal profession but also develop transferable skills to suit roles that require legal knowledge within business.
The degree is recognized by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) as satisfying the academic stage of legal training for solicitors. It also meets the requirements of the Bar Standards Board (BSB) for the academic component of training for barristers. As an Aston LLB graduate, you can therefore proceed directly to the Legal Practice Course or Bar Professional Training Course.
Staying at home, provided the conditions are conducive for studying, is a very wise and financially sound decision. Going to uni in the city you live in is even more cost-effective. You're less reliant on trains and inconsistent travel means and are able to stay in the library till late or socialize with university friends. You will also be familiar with the environment which will help you acclimatize to university life easier.
Hope this has helped.
