This is a late reply to what people are saying, I was stuck in NI for a while. Firts, Aber has the best law department in Wales, cos we're the oldest and has provided more QCs and judges than Cardiff, our biggest legal rivals, also more academics have written books who have been to Aber. Second your grades in the first year will be mainly around the third 2:2 mark as most people are not thinking like lawyers when they arrive. The LPC is at Aber but you need to get a 2:1 really to be considered for the profession. Also the lecturers regard the LPC as good. That's due to a standard of teaching that is acceptable to the Law Society (the body that regulates solicitors) and the exams are done externally, that means sit them in Aber, not marked in Aber. So the standard is good. The library is very good, mainly for cases you can't get on Westlaw or Lexis Nexis, but you will need to have possesion of a textbook for the revision period and essay period as they disappear very quickly, so BUY the textbooks, clearly there is a cheapskate posting here.
Secondly, attend lectures as it saves on the reading and sort of brings things alive, also they explain things the books don't, also DO pay attention to a bit of politics or you won't understand Constitutional law or EU law.
Thrid and final point is regarding the stats, they say there are lies, damn lies and statistics. They tell us when comparing unis, the problem is they have warped the spectrum of unis especially in Wales buy shoving them all into a league table. As well don't look at those law league tables or things like that as the people forget the difference between Scottish law and Common law jurisdictions. Also the grades that the uni accept people on were forced on them for the past 3 years by the University of Wales not by Prifisgol Aberystywth (University) that's according to Niel Kibble, outgoing reader in law and former admissions tutor. Teacupx has forgoten the first rule of argument here, making a point is all well and good but remember to give the evidence and explain it. Clearly not a mooter - DO Moot as well in the mooting society and if you like to argue like I do (as 2 people who have posted stuff (Liam and Nannon DJs) know, too mch about me cos they're my friends) join debating and a political society as they argue constantly, remember being shy in a seminar and not getting the confidence to stand up and speak does you no favours in teh long run as you have to do a module in the LPC or BVC called "ADVOCACY". That means presenting a legal arguement in a formalised way as you would in court. So no hiding at all. And get work experiance over the summer if you can.
