Amsterdam or rotterdam ?

Hello!
I really need help deciding which Law degree that I should pursue based on the career prospects and overall student satisfaction of degree program. I have received admission for
1) Corporate Law(Law, markets and behaviour) at Vrije University of Amsterdam;
2) Commercial Law at Erasmus Uni of Rotterdam;

Please if any student or faculty member could help then that would be highly appreciated since I have never been to Netherlands and all the rankings that I have seen so far show different results. Basically, I want to be employed by the end of the degree and work in an international firm.

Thanks and as I said ANY form of advice will mean the world to me :)

Cheers!

Both good schools. I would look at the curriculum of each program, and also at faculty publications, etc., and see if there's one that stands out.

I can't comment on student satisfaction. But as I suggested to you in another thread, you might ask the school's for an idea about how many grads are able to find work in international law firms after graduation. Or you can scour the profiles of the firms you're targeting to see if any of the attorneys in those firms have done LLMs at either school.

Like I said, both good schools - I'm just not sure if one's going to be better than the other.
