What are the best law uni's for 2024

I know a lot is personal preference but just wanted to know what the best best law unis outside of the lnat London ones and Oxbridge as i have missed the deadline for them. My ucas are A* A A and i get a contextual for Bristol which i am defiantly applying to. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks
Having recently spent time with some law students I would definitely recommend our law school. Some of the highlights are: York's problem-based learning methods, our legal clinics where you work on real cases for real clients and a replica courtroom to practice in! More details here

1. UCL, LSE
2. Durham, KCL, Bristol
3. Nottingham, Manchester, Edinburgh (Scots law), Warwick
4. Southampton, Exeter, QMUL,
5. Leeds, SOAS, Glasgow
6. Sheffield, York,
7. Birmingham, Leicester, Newcastle,
8. Brighton, Reading, Essex, Cardiff, Aberdeen, Sussex

This is what I personally used, based on graduate salaries, QS rankings, entry requirement standards and general opinions and sentiments I saw. It’s super difficult to decide, it took me so long to come up with this list lol.

This is not a 100% accurate list as it’s pretty subjective. People will probably agree with me on tiers 1 and 2 but the rest is up to personal opinion. I would definitely not use it as a deciding factor because ultimately I don’t think employers actually have rankings like this lmao. Some sources to use though:

However again, those are not entirely accurate. Some unis have smaller cohorts so they will be underrepresented in the first ranking. Graduates from london unis tend to stay in London, hence higher salaries.

Amazing thanks so much for that info that’s so useful. Thanks for the time as well. Don’t worry about it not being entirely accurate as neither are most uni rankings but this looks good

Tier 1 and 2 very accurate, I would put Exeter and Birmingham in tier 3 though.

Well as I said it’s entirely subjective. Just a ranking I created for myself and i’m just a fellow applicant, not an expert.
