I think in Belgium Ghent has generally got a better reputation for law than VUB. I would go there. Moreover, Ghent is an amazing city!

I have to disagree with Santa... With some reservations because I haven't really scrutinised both programmes, I'd say that Ghent University isn't considered to be such a big deal... I also know personally somebody that graduated from the specific LLM and that person isn't such a great deal (academically speaking) either, whereas VUB graduates have a rather considerable presence in the various European Commission stage batches.

but isn't bachelor of law 3 years? and then you have 2 years of master? what system is that? i m even more confused now. i actually don't understand how does this LLM stand in comparation with bologna system masters 1 and 2. Is it equivalent to Master 2 then (5th year)?
i got e-mail from them couple of days ago saying they want me to send them ALL my grades form all my years of studies and then they'll make final decision regarding my file. doesn't sound very promissing. :(
thanks for ur answer anyway. ;)

According to last evaluation performed by Belgian educational authorities, best Law school in Belgium is Ghent. Second place goes to Leuven, third to Université Libre de Bruxelles. VUB is not in top 3.
Also price indicates this. Ghent is almost twice more expensive than VUB.
I hope this will help you to make a right choice.
