Don't bother with Australia. Nottingham, Bristol and Warwick are okay, reputation in descending order.

If you plan to accept any of the offers, be prepared for a very tough road ahead. Competition for jobs / TCs will be fierce, plus at first instance you will not compare favourably to Oxbridge, NUS, SMU, LSE or UCL in terms of school prestige.

Very bad. Most small and many mid-sized firms not retaining. The economic outlook is grim, and unlikely to recover the next year or two. Plus the law student oversupply situation...

Not a good time to be a law graduate

Agree. Not to forget even if you get TC/retained, but for government intervention, offers would be deferred and allowances/salaries would be depressed.

Highly advise students to avoid studying Law unless you are very confident you can secure a FCH/High SU, have some special talent, or have strong family/business connections. Otherwise, the odds are not in your favour

I advise onlookers here to take the content at this forum here with a pinch of salt and with prudence.

Iím speaking as someone with 3PQE at a big four and I can confidently say that most deals and matters have yet to stop. Iím sure even for smaller firms, they are still being kept busy because honestly deals are still going through. I have however heard that other big fours, even for mine, and many firms are on a hiring freeze mainly because the firms want to hedge the uncertainty of manpower in light of the economic uncertainty. However, my advise is that one should not see this situation as totally grim. There are still teams requiring manpower because work has simply not slowed down in any ways (fortunate or unfortunate, to each their own).

In a broader perspective, I think law is becoming increasingly competitive because economy has slowed down even before COVID. Employability in law is dependent on the general business activities. However, this is not a all-grim situation because there ARE still plenty of opportunities out there for graduates. Whilst I wouldnít advise my niece/nephews to study law but perhaps computer science, I would still encourage people who are already in the industry to hang tight and continue looking for opportunities. Nothing in this world comes easy.

If yo have got what it takes, have the grit and doesn't mind getting spat on forums like this, go for it.

If not, there are many other jobs and alternatives out there. The smart ones will know. The dull ones will be the ones getting confined to the stereotypical ideas and trashing others down because they themselves are just bitter about the lack of opportunities available to themselves.

Don't miss the forest for the trees. The situation is very grim. Do not be deceived by de minimis manpower demand that can barely soak up a drop in an ocean of supply.
