I agree with the above, but you should always keep in mind that an LL.M. programm depends a lot on your own work and on the library and online resources available to you.

Usually you only have 2 (!) lessons every week. So the rest of the week you are left to yourself, to study in the library, at home or with friends. So in my opinion you do not benefit much from excellent lecturers, because you rarely will see them....

Completely rubbish!
Last year I started and 1 week later I withdrawed.
Its a metropolitan school and all lectures start after 6 pm :S
No seminars! only 2 hours per week for a lecture!
Not have reputition and have a few Europeans.
All Nigerians and Indians.
It accepts neraly every application.
International Law course is in the north campus in a very bad area and far away centre.

I have spent the past 5 years at London Met's Law School as an LLB so I consider myself fairly informed!
The actual academic staff are top notch! Some have authored leading text books in their respective subjects e.g. Janet Loveless in criminal law Edwin Shorts in human rights Silas Beckwith in torts & environmental law. I would find the comment posted by Pinarkc bizarre to say the least; classes take place from 10AM onwards throughout the day and the evening. Every class that I attended had seminars attached to it.
However there seem to be some financial issues causing the university to cut back and they seem to limit the choice of modules one could take, as they are not replacing the staff, with the same caliber as the ones that leave or retire.
In addition to that I have experienced many many issues with the admin staff. They have many rules and they are applied draconianly. On one occasion at least I had to threaten the university with legal action.
My verdict is the academic side is decent, although it's not reflected in the ranking tables. The bureaucratic side with it's awkward and inflexible rules is horrendous.

The above is a fair comment being a reflection of my own personal experience and is to be considered as the honest personal opinion of the author of this post made in good faith and without malice.
