if i have a set statement in a login script

Are Login script run before Group policy or is it the other way around ?

Why not just test it?  Set both to different values in a sandboxed environment, and see which will take precedent.  I would expect it to be the logon script, but checking would surely be the best method?

Group Policis will apply first, then the logon scripts set on the user accounts in Active Directory Users and Computers. Therfore you need to be careful how you apply settings to avoid the scenario that you mention.

Most companies implement scripts via group policy as it is easier to modify lots of users by controlling via GPO's

The SET command sets a variable temporarily, not persistently.  It only lasts for the duration of the batch script and and any scripts called by that script.  Any scripts which are run independently will not have the variable set.
