Door still open for students gunning for top law universities

Today is A-level results day, and any aspiring lawyers will be glad to know that several Russell Group universities still have LLB places available.

As students across the land hold their collective breath to find out where (and whether) they will be taking the first steps toward their legal careers, they might like to know that Newcastle University also still has vacancies on its LLB law degree while Liverpool University has places on a number of its joint law degrees as well as its LLB.

Today’s news looks good for students still hoping for a place at a top UK university. Law is the sixth most popular university course, but this year’s clearing process suggests that it’s far from game over for anyone wanting to study law this autumn but who is yet to find a berth.
It’s also good news for students who have done better than expected in their A-levels; some may have the option of ‘adjustment’ (available through UCAS until the 31 August), through which students can trade in their current university option for a better one.
