LLM in public law vs Columbia


blade09

Hi there - I have an offer from LSE and I want to specialize in public law (with perhaps a sub-focus on human rights). In every way possible I am tempted to accept at this very second. However, I am still waiting to hear from Columbia and thinking perhaps I should wait, as Columbia is generally thought to be ranked higher. However, I am more drawn to the courses, program, and city at LSE. Any thoughts on whether I should wait would be very much appreciated.

Hi there !

No doubt CLS has quite a reputation. However, do you really think that it matters if you don't want to work in BigLaw ? I guess given your plans, what you should focus on is professors you might have the opportunity to work with. That would make the difference I guess. That said, I know very little about public law, so I won't be able to give you my opinion as to whether CLS is the place to go vs LSE.
