Best LLM for International Arbitration - LSE v UCL v KCL


Hi All,

I intend on applying to these three schools for September 2011 admission.

The broader question of which school is better is quite a well-worn discussion on this site - but can anyone speak, with justification, as to the calibre of each school with respect to international arbitration?

Thanks in anticipation.

I asked around about this for someone earlier in the year (consulting the arbitration practice manager at one of the magic circle firms, and a former QM lecturer in international arbitration.) They were in favour of KCL and LSE over UCL. I'll see whether I can find the emails as I don't have any personal knowledge!

Glad to see youve decided to apply regardless of where you end up, hope to meet you in London.

Good to hear from you mate. I am going to apply to start 2011. As I said on the other thread, I really think I need another year in practice. If you stick around in England for a few months after you finish at UCL, we'll definitely catch up.

Cheers

Hi,
I ll be at King's next year, so it is my definitive choice. But since I ve done moot competition in commercial arbitration, I ve meet professors form all around the world. If arbitration was my final choice for LLM, i would also have applied for QMU since they have fantastic lecturers ( Mistelis,Brekoulakis,Lew etc)... Also UCL, LSE and Kings...So you have a wide choice of really good programs.
Good luck.

Hi,

My friend took the International Arbitration course at UCL. He had practised in international arbitration in his home country. He thought the course was useful and the theoretical and jurisprudential focus of the course added to his practical knowledge. I understand that the course is taught by a practitioner at Freshfields who is very open to assisting students understand the course. My friend really enjoyed the course and learnt a lot. While Lew and Mistelis (both at QMUL) have written the textbook on international arbitration that has been in use for years, my friend tells me that the definitive guide is a text by Gary Born a partner at one of the leading firms in London and basically the guru on international arbitration.

This year UCL offered volunteer internships at an international arbitration organisation. Can't remember the name. Not sure whether they will make the same offer in 2011.

Hope this helps.
