LLM in Corporate Law at Edinburgh or Glagow or Warwick, Bristol or Leeds


Hi to all,



I need advice. I have got offers from the Universities - Edinburgh, Glasgow, Warwick, Bristol, and Leeds. I am going to make a master's degree in Corporate Law.

I would like to know which is better for LLM in Corporate Law: 

In the case of Scotland:
Edinburgh or Glasgow? Pros and cons of law schools of Edinburgh & Glasgow? Which one of them is more practice-oriented?

In the case of England: 
Warwick or Bristol or Leeds? Pros and cons of law schools of Warwick or Bristol or Leeds? Which one of them is more practice-oriented?

I will appreciate any feedback.

Thanks in advance.

In Scotland, both Glasgow and Edinburgh are highly regarded. 
Whilst in England, Warwick has the edge. Warwick> Bristol>Leeds although Bristol is a semi target university for undergrad. For postgrad, Warwick is better. Leeds has a pleasant social life and high student satisfaction if that counts. 
However it depends where you want to practice. If you want to undertake Scots law, (Note: a Scottish law degree is not a qualifying law degree for England.) You have to undertake appropriate conversion course to English law before you can go on to do training contract. My best bet would be Warwick. 
Also, It is upto you which university are you personally inclined to attend. Look for their structured core modules and how industrial oriented are they. That should help.

Good luck.

Many thanks,  

I have been informed by Edinburgh Law school follows:



Teaching on our LLM degree programmes does not generally focus on one specific jurisdiction. As a UK based law school, we do use examples from UK law, both English and Scots law, where appropriate, but also use examples from European law, international law, and other jurisdictions.  
I have been told in any case I will have to take a converse course in order to take SQE if I want to become a solicitor in England and Wales.
