  • Well done Warwick for staying in the top 10...

  • This league table has proven exactly what I thought of Exeter - it's full of posh students who aren't that bright.

  • University league tables are all deeply, deeply flawed. This one at least gives undergrads some idea of how happy they might be at uni and provides useful information on staff-student ratios, but so much depends on the individual. Particularly at Oxbridge, where the quality of your tutor could make a massive difference to the quality of your education. And is it really news that going to Oxbridge, Durham, UCL or other top 10 unis is probably a better bet than choosing to study law at Bolton?

  • Good point re Exeter - would be curious to know where At Andrews features in the tables - it's a another favourite hunting ground for law firms proving that provided you'd got to look and accent you'll be sorted...

  • @ Anonymous | 18-May-2011 3:36 pm - Spot on re Exeter, they're usually pretty unpleasant as well.

    This league table is pretty flawed in the very large weighting that it gives to the results of various student satisfaction surveys. Few would objectively put Queen Mary above LSE, which is far stronger in terms of research. However in broadly highlighting the strength of the 'Golden Triangle' the table is reflecting reality.

  • "would be curious to know where At Andrews features in the tables"

    One problem. St Andrews doesn't do law.

  • Heaven forfend St Andrews students and graduates might actually be bright and capable people.

  • I've come across useless lawyers who went to Oxford, and excellent ones who went to less trumpeted institutions.
    This country is obsessed with celebrity and rankings .
    I suppose they have to fill their newspaper with something..

  • I don't see what everyone has against Queen Mary!!! As a department the school of law ranks consistently in the top ten of every league table, with good student satisfaction and research levels. Furthermore, it is probably one of the only uni's in the top ten who won't produce students who think they are god's gift to litigation. Something which some may wish to bear in mind if they wish to pursue a career in law.

  • Well, if there are poor lawyers that went to Oxford, and excellent ones who went to apparently worse universities, then obviously this means that the proposition that Oxford is a better university than (say) Bolton is entirely undermined!

    And the fact that your great grandad smoked 20 a day his whole life and lived to 96 shows that there is no link between smoking a various life-threatening illnesses.
