Hi Mia,
just one last thing on the forum:
I would put a clear focus on either maritime/admiralty law (including carriage of goods, charterparties etc. - civil law) or law of the sea (environmental law, public international law etc. - public law).

I know that in many programmes one has to take "everything with water" in order to reach the number of four "maritime" modules. However, at least as far as the bigger maritime law firms are concerned there is a clear distinction between the "civil law gals and guys" and the "public law gals and guys". One day you will have to choose, do it as early as possible...

There aren't many information on Bristol's Maritime Law LLM program on the board. Is anyone in it? Despite not having an institute, the LLM seems to have interesting classes and a good teaching team. Also, Bristol University has a better overall reputation than Southampton and Swansea I guess. Any opinion on it?

Bristol is a leading law school in the UK.

It is a notch above Southampton and Swansea. As far as I see it and I am aware that many city firms have Bristol in high regard.

I will reinforce once again that their LLM programme is very good. The other two are solid law schools in their own right.

Prestige and reputation wise definitely Bristol hands down

As far as _general_ "prestige and reputation" are concerned, you are certainly right. However, the prestige and the reputation of the respective maritime law programmes are a different matter...
