Actually that may be somewhat true of NUS but not correct of overseas grads from delisted schools. Many in the latter camp actually come from less affluent backgrounds. Gross generalization of course, with many exceptions but that’s what I’ve observed.

The analogy with US legal education is flawed cos most JC students don't take on the great financial and opportunity cost to do what US JD students do.

Let them study in second rate UK or Oz unis and the market will sort out the wheat from the chaff lor. Who cares, if you're good, you don't need to be worried.

Oxbridge FCH doesn't mean you are set for ptnership either.
Practice will be the true test.
