Hi Isabel.dcs

I am 99% sure that I will be accepting the MCL offer, but I have applied to Oxford as well and am awaiting it's decision before I confirm acceptance.

How about you?

In the same boat. I'm expecting an answer from CLS / SLS but unless they offer me a scholarship I'll accept the MCL.

Rgds!

Isabel.dcs and Lucien- how many others apart from the two of you have received offers for the MCL programme?

If there are going to be only 30 slots, I dont know if all the offers have already been made :|

Hi Crazyn. Besides me and Lucien, I know that two other guys were accepted (check the apptracker). It's possible that they're still sending out offers, so fingers crossed!

I've read the thread of Cambridge LLM that the offers were all made before last Saturday. I don't know if this is also applied to MCL because I am still in the status of "Awaiting consideration by the department". Anyone knows?

Nop, the process is different and we have to wait till the end of April for the MCL:

Application Decision Timeline
After an application is received, it will be assessed by the MCL Admissions Committee based on academic merit. The MCL Admissions Committee will begin considering applications after the application deadline closes.

The Law Faculty aims to finalise all MCL application decisions by 15 April 2014 for the 2014-15 MCL course and applicants should be notified of the outcome of their application no later than 30 April 2014.

Successful applicants will have one month to accept their place on the MCL, which they must do by paying a reservation fee.

I hope they release it earlier since end of April is already beyond the confirmation/reservation deadlines of other schools. Fingers crossed.

do you think that the MCL programme is in any sense superior to the LLM? e.g. if I choose only corporate related subjects (corporate finance, corporate governance, etc.) during the LLM, am I going to be less "elite" candidate for employers than a person who finished the MCL?

Following up other trends and the information on the MCL and LLM websites from Cambridge, I would say that it depends in which area of the law you wanna dedicate yourself to.

In other words if what you want is/are corporate law, M&A, investment law, finance, bank law, etc. then the MCL is for you. if not then the LLM.

the MCL is the best of the best for law & finance. According to the Cam' website.

However, if you are a "kick-ass" lawyer then any of these degrees is more than enough.

Hope this helps.

thanks LGE
but the question remains open, Cambridge claims one thing, Oxford another, saying that the MLF is the best programme for law and finance
3rd party opinion would be very much appreciated...

I gotta say, I love Oxford, I've been there (visiting) and by not just "educational" factors but others I will always select it over Cam. Unfortunately, although the MLF waited-listed me last year, this year it was a no go for me. I am still waiting for answers from the Mjur (Oxford) and the LLM and MCL (Cambridge).

However, I do believe the MCL is better connected in the "city", with american schools i.e. Harvard, and in NYC than the MFL

Cheers!
