Trinity College Dublin

Does anybody know what the reputation of Trinity Colleg Dublin is, and, in particular, of its LLM programme? Trinity College is supposed to be the most renowned University of Ireland. Yet, it does (evidently) not appear on any (UK) rankings. How would you rank it - for example, compared with LSE, UCL, etc.? A good friend of mine is so fond of Dublin that he absolutely wants to go there. However, in my opinion he should also ensure the LLM programme is of a certain quality/value...

Trinity College Dublin has an excellent reputation and its law students are some of the most highly qualified students leaving second-level education in Ireland.

Its undergraduate programme is of extremely high quality. Most Trinity graduates however go to Cambridge or Oxford to do LL.M.'s and a huge number are accepted to both these colleges every year. These students generally do not do the LL.M. at Trinity (although there are obvious reasons for this: international dimension to postgraduate study etc.) They are highly sought after graduates. The LL.M. programme does not have the same reputation (I personally believe) although the lecturers etc are the same. I think the entrance standard for the LL.M. is not as high (LL.M.'s are not "necessary" to get into top firms in Ireland and England if you have excellent undergraduate degree). However, a good student will be challenged during the programme, if s/he has a mind for it. If you wanted to study in Dublin, Trinity has an excellent reputation generally, and the LL.M. programme will be what you make of it yourself.

Thank you very much for your response. Could you kindly point out how Trinity's LLM would be ranked compared with LSE, UCL, Edinburgh...
