Those are all very different markets. There are very few 'global brands' that could take you anywhere (Harvard, Oxford, Yale). USC and Leiden are great programs but they aren't at that level. Leiden is probably a stronger brand in the EU and in the UK, I suppose. In the US-- especially on the west coast and to a lesser degree in Asia-- USC has the edge.

Let me add Columbia, NYU, and Cambridge to your list of law schools that can take you anywhere.

Yes I agree but one has to choose when you don't get into these top institutions.

If money is not an issue go to the United States.. The experience of studying in the US is one in a lifetime. You may regret not going.... USC is a stellar university with a worldwide reputation. It is not Harvard yes, but it is a well know and good university.

Completely agree with this post.

In my opinion the US universities have the best reputation and USC has a great network.

Hello,

Even though rankings are sometimes subjective, you may want to have a look at the QS Law ranking (https://www.topuniversities.com/university-rankings/university-subject-rankings/2017/law-legal-studies) which ranks individual law schools. This may provide you with a good indication of the reputation of Law Schools. Please also keep in mind that if you are a good student, professors are willing to share their (international) networks with you regardless of where in the world you are.
Good luck in making your decision!

Kind regards,
Anette
