They are both solid and respected law schools. Sheffield is particularly well known in the city. Lancaster is also a very good though a newer institution comparing to Lancaster. The legal profession attracts a certain degree of snobbery, but in this particular case, these schools are peers meaning that there is no difference in attending one or the other.

Look at the course and the modules that you prefer. I would probably attend Sheffield since it is a well established law school, but Lancaster is certainly good too!

Sheffield is also a Russel group university and is internationally known as a solid and respected institution!

They are campus based universities, though Sheffield is in a city and Lancaster has more of a rural setting. Really depends what you are looking for! Good luck deciding!

Thanks for sharing this information. The choice of modules at Lancaster is excellent. At Sheffield, it is somewhat limited but all relevant topics are covered.
