Almost a third of lawyers at the UK’s elite Magic Circle law firms attended Oxford or Cambridge universities, new data published today shows.

The research shows 76 per cent of trainee lawyers at the UK’s leading 139 law firms are Oxbridge and Russell Group graduates.

The figures were compiled by the Chambers Student Guide from interviews with 2,500 trainee lawyers over the last three years.

According to the data, 31.4 per cent of trainee lawyers at London’s elite Magic Circle firms – Linkaters, Slaughter and May, Clifford Chance, Allen & Overy and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer – went to Oxbridge.

This is despite Oxbridge students making up less than one per cent of each year’s graduating class.

Your statement is factually incorrect. Next to top American institutions, Cambridge (and its older brother Oxford) look like glorified state schools at best. Among the likes of Berkeley, UMich and UCLA.

The Ivy League - let alone the face of the Ivy League - is on another level altogether. Incomparable in wealth, power, prestige and alumni. Oxbridge is to Harvard, NUS is to Oxbridge.

Plebs here are obsessed with Oxbridge because it's the only 'top' institution they have a chance of attending. 80RP? 45 IB? 1600 SAT? Out of Raffles/Hwa Chong?

Nah, you're still not getting into Harvard, unless you've won the Nobel prize/cured cancer/professional athlete or something along those lines.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: wannabe scholars flock to Oxbridge. Our government sends a hundred or so every year to collect their degrees. Nothing special.

Only 1-5 Singaporeans have the privilege of being accepted into HYPSM every year. Attending a top American college is the mark of a true elite.
What institution did you graduate from?
