Best LLM for Corporate Law?


jeremy222
Hey all, is there any consensus on the best law school where I could pursue an LLM in corporate law? Especially interested in M&A, bankruptcy topics.

I am thinking about the NYU LLM in Corporation Law but I would like to apply to at least one or two other schools. Could be schools outside of the US, too. In fact I may actually prefer to study in London. Any suggestions?

This is quite a common specialization, so you shouldn't have any trouble finding something that suits you.

Fortunately, London is home to some of the world's best law schools. LSE and QMUL I know both offer LLMs in Corporate law. UCL as well.

I'd suggest aiming as high as you can (get into the highest ranked, best regarded school.)

What do you think of LLM programs without actual concentrations / specializations in corporate law. For instance I know that Columbia is well regarded (and would make a lot of sense with regard to my network) but as far as I know the LLM does not offer any specialization in corporate law.

I suggest that unless you are looking at ultra-niche programs, to prioritize the school and its alumni network over a specialization.

If Columbia would make more sense in terms of your network, then this would be an excellent choice. You'd get some exposure to corporate law topics in the curriculum, and maybe even be able to take some electives in the area. It's not always totally necessary to pursue a specialization.

If you're looking at London schools I'd also recommend checking out UCL - they have a range of specialist LLMs including one in Corporate Law.
