Queen Mary / Manchester / Bristol / Warwick International business law


Hi,

I am currently struggling between these universities, any opinions on the subject?

To give a little bit more information if needed:

I want to work all around the world in law firms, companies, NGO, or even institutions, as a lawyer/sollicitor/negociator/lobbyist/project director I do not really care actually (I will be a lawyer specialised in business law and tax in about 2 months in France).

Correct me if I am wrong, to me an excellent LLM must represent 4 things that will be reknowned internationally: reputation, skills, international network, employability.

Here is the short version of my actual personal ranking:

1. Manchester
2. Warwick
3. Bristol
4. Queen Mary, University of London

5. Glasgow
6. Newcastle

And here are my thoughts in the long version for the warriors ^_^' (thank youuu):

1. Manchester
++ = Great rank, international reputation, employers like it a lot?, active and attracting city, lot of students to connect with
-- = Really good at law? Renowned for economics and business no?

2. Warwick
++ = Great rank, very good reputation inside and outside uk, lot of employers told me they hire these dudes
-- = Really good at law?

3. Bristol
++ = one of the best rank in law, very interesting new llm for 2016 including courses mixing law, sociology and politics
-- = kind of unknowned outside uk? maybe a bit snob I heard?

4. Queen Mary, University of London
++ = french law firms I could talk to said they like it a lot, wide range of very interesting courses, part of the University of London, London town

influence for career, reputation and activity
-- = maybe seen as one of the worst inside london? ('competing' against UCL, LSE, and KCL :/), 'bad' rank inside and outside uk (except 3rd in the Guardian

can someone explain me this???), especially in the world rankings

5. Glasgow
++ = reknowned school of law, good ranking inside uk, not bad worldwide
-- = kind of unknowned outside uk, especially for employers?

6. Newcastle
Well, seems to clearly be the weakest here from all points of view

Thank you so much everyone for your time and consideration, have a good holidays!

chicken so...
I don't think QMUL is one of the worst in London, by a long shot. Maybe it's seen as a bit behind LSE and KCL but most repuatational differences will be relatively minor.

In fact, given its footprint in France, I would think it would be one of your top choices.
