I have offers to study law at two but don’t know which to choose

In the latest instalment in our Career Conundrums series, one A-level student has a tough decision to make.

“I am currently choosing which university to study law at, and I have managed to whittle it down to two: York and Newcastle. Newcastle is actually my preferred option, but some people have told me York is more prestigious and firms would value a degree from there more. I had just assumed all Russell Group universities were equally prestigious but maybe I’m wrong. Should I go for York over Newcastle instead?”
