It may be less hectic than London or Birmingham, but with nine-to-five teaching four days a week, students at South Wales don't slack off. It's not in a legal hub, true, but the University runs a number of initiatives aimed at getting grads out there, including a flexible mentoring scheme which places students with both local outfits and big national firms. Although the fees were hiked a few years ago, it remains a reasonably priced course in a picturesque part of the country.
