Amaria with respect to your post, you know nothing about commercial law in the UK obviously. Bristol has by far one of the strongest faculties in commercial law in the UK.

Their LLM programme is very good. I would recommend it without hesitation.

Glasgow is good but Bristol is better. Go to Bristol!

Its by far the best school on that lot...

It has an excellent reputation within the city and also in most law firms. Heavily targeted by employers.

Glasgow is no where near Bristol in terms of reputation....

To the original poster do pick Bristol!

Glasgow may well be good but no where near Bristol.

Please calm down. Other people have their own recommendations and opinions. You don't need to forcefully contradict everyone who expresses different ones to your own.

The number of misleading posts in this forum, specially on the UK forum, and grown drastically and I should warn people who are about to invest thousands of pounds in a course, to pursue the best course that ultimately will help their careers.

As a solicitor and with knowledge of the UK legal market, I will continue to bring to the attention of future students the best options to pursue LLM degrees in the UK.

As will everyone else on this board, I'm sure. There's nothing wrong with giving advice and I think you've made your recommendation clear. However I have a problem with people shouting down the views and experiences of others. You've given your recommendation, I have given mine and another poster has given theirs, so it's up to the OP to make his own decision. Given his options, he'll be going to a great school whichever he chooses. Good luck, OP!

I just bumped into this post again.
I did not shout any views or experiences, I simply made a recommendation of the best law school in the lot, which is in this case happens to be Bristol. If you have a problem or not that's irrelevant. And rightly so it is up for the OP to go wherever (which he or she probably did or did not in the end).

Hi,
I too got admitted to the Corporate and Financial law LLM programme at the University of Glasgow. Any word on how the programme is as compared to other similarly placed Universities?

Glasgow is always a good option too!

Remember that you will also focus in aspects of Scottish law as well but I think that would be the least of your concerns. When picking a school, besides the quality of the programme, you should also look at the reputation of the programme, your interests, the city itself, the weather (if that matters to you).

Glasgow is an old University so you can't go wrong with it.
If you compare say Glasgow with say LSE for Corporate then the latter will have a stronger programme and reputation too.

What are your other options?

None so far. I was keen on going to Glasgow based on the fact that the fee is lower and the training, as I have been advised, is excellent.
Thanks for the insightful advice though.
