Can't get enough - UCL or KCL


MAB79

Hey Guys,

If you have work experience as a lawyer I don't think it really matters what university you pick.

I'm currently doing the LLM at UCL. I also have very good friends doing the LLM at KCL and QMUL. We're all doing commercial specialisations and we've all worked as lawyers for big firms back in our home countries.

Pick the university that suits you and what you want to study. I picked UCL because I could easily pick 4 courses I really wanted to do and that complemented my work experience. My friends at KCL and QMUL undertook a very similar exercise when deciding where they wanted to go. We're all thoroughly enjoying our courses as a result.

At the end of the day, its your marks, your personality and your experience that's going to get you a job. The name and rank of the university is usually a very small factor.

Hope that helps.

Thanks! That's my opinion!

For all you guys who are caught up in the midst of choosing a college, my sincere advise to you is, to please choose the college that offers you the specialisation, you need for yourself.
Frankly speaking there isnt any difference between UCL and KCL, both of them function in the same manner and ranks always one position up or down each year. In 2008-2009 KCL ranked above UCL and this year UCL is above KCL.
They both have really good faculties, so in my view please see the profile of the professors who will teach the modules that you wanna take up.

I can throw some light on KCL's faculty as I study there. KCL's faculty is very well known for commercial, competition, IPR and finance law. We have professors like Tennekoon, Dalhusien, Wish and Hooley who have all written books on the subject and students in the other colleges often study from them.

So I would recommend that you should do a through check on the professors who will teach you in any college that you wanna take up. Trust me it makes a lot of difference to be taught by a good faculty.

One honest advice, if you are thinking finance then choose KCL cause the modules and faculty is excellent. Dalhusien teaches in US at UC Berkeley too and Tenekoon is also a lecturer in laws at Trinity College in Oxford. You will never regret being taught by these professors at KCL in finance laws

Goodluck!!!!

I got offer from both UCL and KCL. I am looking to study competition law, and while I believe that KCL has a very good reputation for their competition law courses, UCL also seems to have very wide variety of courses. UCL also established Jevons Institute in 2006 and seems like they are strengthning their competition law couses. I would appreciate it if anybody knows or have opinion on UCL competition law courses.
