    Warwick is just better in almost every aspect - especially reputation, which is important in a law degree

    You only have five choices now for UCAS btw

    You really must be joking, OP. If you have to ask the question, then I would suggest you are not best suited to Warwick.

    Don't bother with Nottingham Trent Polytechnic :p: , the social atmosphere there is quite good from what I gather (unsurprisingly*) but they are a rather small institution -and the top law firms wouldn't be terribly interested.

    Our law courses as said are far more reputable really and quite difficult to do well in , but they are very well regarded amongst the good law firms.(I'm a Nottingham Maths Phys student).

    Don't know much about Warwick in terms of Law but the uni as a whole has established a very good reputation despite not being established for very long - I'd be surprised if their law course wasn't in the top 15 or so.

    Well they have to decide which ones they'd like to go to in order to apply. Then they might get offers and then they can choose which one to study at.

    This is a joke, right? This table is by no means infallible but just to give you a vague idea: http://www.guardian.co.uk/education/...sity-guide-law

    If you have to even ask this question, then I would say you would be better off at Trent TBBH.

    Fair enough the OP was wrong to even ask a question like this but it is absolutely wrong to say that the top law firms won't be terribly interested because that's so wrong.

    Nottingham Trent is not a polytechnic, it is a university and yes fair enough Warwick is very reputable for law but Nottingham Trent is regarded in the legal area as an up and coming university and it is definitely not viewed as a polytechnic by top law firms or even the bar especially considering how competitive the bar is.

    EDIT - OP you are meant to choose 5 universities not 6
