Aberdeen University vs. KCL vs. City


Kerfuffle I do understand what you sa...!!
But KCL is not responding and QMUL is the least I am expecting...!! I expected KCL to respond by the 10th as per their time limits...! But now i am not waiting..! and QMUL is not gonna reply before June....it has a very lazy administration department in my view...!!

So the only choices I am left with right now is City and Aberdeen University....so as of right now I am making a decision between this...!

I do agree with you that if later I receive an offer from UCL, KCL, QMUL, SOAS....i would reject aberdeen or City..!

but City University requires me to make a deposit within 6 weeks to accept the offer..!! So I need to accept any one offer atleast before I wait for London sisters to reply to application..!

So which one would it be City University...being in london and closer to litigation and teaching common law...!
or Aberdeen University....far off in scotland....at the end of UK....(though well know for Oil and Gas)....i dunno how far it is good for Commercial Law studies....and after that Commercial Law practice in London (litigation preferable)...!

So i am very confused....both have thier own advantages...and i really like the subjects offered by both...!!

I am extremely confused..>!

I keep voting for Aberdeen. It is in fact far off in Scotland, but you will have to study full time for one year anyway (that's what you are planning, right?), so it really doesn't matter if it isn't near London... Can't go wrong with a LLM degree from a good and respected law school like Aberdeen. Not that City may not be a good uni, but it isn't famous or recognized at all. I think you'd be better off with a degree from Aberdeen, even if what you have in mind is a job in London (a temp job, right? - like a foreign associate or something).

concern is I want to go into litigation in London and get registered with SRA...! So even if its temporary or permanentt i don' care...I want it for 2 years experience in England and Wales...and notthing can beat work-experience in London..!
After 2 years period I can manage on my own....(which I will either come back to India or apply to a larger firm in London itself)..!
And getting registered with SRA is quite a nice and great deal in Indian Legal Market...!

Hi All,

I have been offered a place by the School of Law (Aberdeen) for LLM in Oil and Gas Law for January 2012 intake.
I have no doubt about the course as it might one of the most prestigious Oil and Law but I am concerned about the Scottish accent in general and English used at the university where some people told me that Scottish pronunciation is difficult to understand. Is that true?

I really appreciate your feedback on this matter.

Thanks in advance for everyone

No, it is not.
But you may have troubles when talking to Scottish people in a pub or in the Nortwest Highlands.
