As A level results are released, places on law degrees are still available at some of the country’s most highly-regarded universities.

They have places listed in the clearing process, which allows students who failed to make the grades they needed for their preferred course the chance to find a place at another university where spaces are still available. Similarly, students who did better than expected will be able to enter a process called adjustment if they wish to trade up to a university with more strenous grade requirements.

Among the Russell Group universities which have yet to fill up their law courses is Leeds, which still has vacancies on its LLB law degree, and Queen Mary University of London.

Sheffield also has LLB places still available as does Southampton.

However, Manchester, which still had spaces to fill as A level results were released in 2015, has no free spots this year. Likewise, the University of East Anglia, which last year had spots open for its Law, Law with American Law and four-year Law with European Legal Systems degrees, is booked up.
