CITY UNIVERSITY REPUTATION

Is City really that bad?

I'm headed to ICSL (and Francis Rowley) for the Bar this Sept, and am getting kinda worried in view of the -ve feedback. Not helping with the fact that I'm also currently teetering on the edge of doing either the LLM (UCL) or the Bar...

Mate. Do the Bar first. You will avoid the deferred Call nonsense from the Bar Council. 2007 will the last lost of barristers before the pupillage proviso comes to force.

FRC is convenient for ICSL and the Inns, but the standard of living (after coming from a proper uni) leaves a common room, bar etc. to be desired.

Hi keyplayer. i was a bit worried about the deferred call proposal too. But it seems that the Bar Council has issued yet another consultation document:

http://www.barcouncil.org.uk/documents/DeferralCallConsultationPaperfinal140706.pdf

Its becoming a bit of a joke now but apparently there is a second consultation with all stakeholders giving evidence by 14 November 2006. The Council of the Inns will then give a decision in "Summer 2007." What is interesting is that the document now says that the earliest likely date for any changes is September 2009.

On the strength of this I've decided to do the BVC in September 2007 so that I can go to UCL this September. I don't know whether this is a wise move - especially if the Bar Council again chooses to look again at the issue!!

Hm......I'd have to agree with bleech that reading this threat is making me having second thoughts about City Law School. I plan to apply for the LLM Crim Lit. Anybody has comments on this program?

I'm an overseas student btw

Wow, how interesting!
I am actually the person who's posted the initial question in July 2005. Well, may i say that I have accepted City University's offer and I am currently pursuing a part-time LLM there.
Last year I had the chance to meet few times with Dr. Alan. We, me and other students, also went for a hot delicious hot chocolate to discuss LLM students' activities...
City Law School is dramatically changing. The new Commercial programme looks very good. I wish I could have applied for it last year.

Sorry chaps, I don't buy all this.

Poorly resourced library, poor pastoral and other essential resources (they've just closed the refectory, so there's nowhere to get something to eat), awful location and buildings, and overpriced as well.

Interestingly, they've just ditched the name 'Inns of Court School of Law' for their BVC arm, thereby removing the main reason (apart from the location in Gray's Inn) for going there.
