Difference in studying in England & Scotland


C.Miller

Here, at The University of Edinburgh, School of Law, my office has regular contact with lecturers and academic staff. In any one week I'd expect to hear more accents from other parts of the world than I would hear from Scotland. For example, it's almost half way through Monday morning and I have already heard accents hailing originally from South America, USA, Canada, Germany and England! Oh yes, and one Scot, though she spent so much time in Holland, that her accent isn't as strong as it might be.

It seems that this section of Scotland's academic community is no less international than the course syllabus at LL.M level.

Finding a job in UK on strength of just LL.M from UK is nearly impossible so I would suggest you try to do a LL.M from either Oxford or Cambridge or any top Law School in London(LSE,UCL,KCL etc.)...at least these Law Schools have a good International reputation and the degree from any top Law School will prove useful to you in case you plan to return to India once your LL.M gets over.

Hi, I had considered Glascow LLm and was scared of the accent and beleived London Uni would have more prestige. Also I was told UCL would have better "contacts". I am not convined at all about my choice and for the accent, The instructor - as quite few other teachers- is actually Scottish with harsh accent, Then, no guarantee anywhere.
What would you think be the best way to enter the legal profession - lawyer or in house legal advisor- as specialised in IT and Internet law ?
