It seems like something very big when you are a student / trainee. But nobody really cares.

My group of friends from Bristol recently all got into Big 4. I also have friends from Oxford who didn't get MC or Big 4 even with 2:1. If you look at the AG, Chief Justice, Solicitor General, Supreme Court judges etc. they're mostly NUS. I also have a good friend from NUS who started off in Big 4 then went to MC and eventually decided on being an in house counsel for work life balance. So people shouldn't be too hung up about where they go for law school. It does play a role but basically they also want to look at your grades and how well you interviewed. Even if you were Oxbridge but didn't get at least a 2:1, I think it would be very difficult to get into the more competitive firms.

Cheap labour.
No wonder the posters above are so cringe and insulting.
Inferiority complex.

I think this is more of a pride issue.
If I am from a certain uni, I am more inclined to hire juniors from that certain uni.

If your pay is lower than a janitor. Take it as a sign to leave the shithole.

It's very high. I got $500 for RLT and $1000 for TC in 2016/2017 respectively. Height of the glut - even getting a spot was difficult then. It must be really easy to get a spot and to pass Part A and B nowadays.

To add to my reply, there were some who even PAID the firms to let them do their TC there. Those are the true assholes who spoiled the market. They have no self-respect at all.
