Durham, Glasgow, Manchester, Cardiff, Edinburgh

Hello I am completely lost. I've been admited to those unis and still waiting for an answer from Bristol, Birmingham and Aberdeen. What do you think about them?
I find different information about them in terms of rankings and so on, Durham seems to be the best-rated of them and Manchester is really depreciated, but on the other hand I think Glasgow and Edinburgh are great places to study. Everywhere I applied for International Commercial/Business Law.
What would your advice be? Are they people who have already finished those LLMs?

I am actually looking at two of those schools, Bristol and Durham.

However I have narrow it down to Bristol and Nottingham. Durham is good but choice of modules is limited and not so much in the areas I want to focus. Maybe they will introduce them the coming year.

Bristol is rated as a very good law school in the UK and great reputation in the judiciary as well as city firms. Their LLM course is very good too (from what people told me).

Edin seems to be a very good place to study as well. Very solid international reputation and a beautiful city. I did not consider the rest of them but they may well be good.

If you get admission to Bristol I think you should narrow it down to Bristol, Edin or Durham and look at which modules you want to study and then make your decision. All three are excellent!

I agree with you. SInce my plans include International career I think International reputation should be taken into serious consideration. Durham seems to have very solid reputation, maybe even the best of all those listed, but I'm not sure I can handle the life in such a place :)
On the other hand I've heard and read great stuff about Glasgow, Edinburgh and Bristol - very good reputation of those law faculties, great cities to live in, possible chances of a part-time job while studying and so on. They are also very well-known in continental Europe, so I that makes my choise even harder :)
I would also advice most of the people who can't afford the life in London to try them out.
Manchester and Cardiff doesn't seem as good as the others, I've read some negative feedbacks of previous year students about the low quality of the programs.

Durham has a very very good LLB programme but when it comes to LLM programme I believe Bristol and Edin are places with well established programmes and more choice.

I can comment on Edi as that is where I did my LLM in international. Prof Boyle has an outstanding reputation in the IL field and is a practioner, which helps immensely. He won a case before the ICJ last year and is prepping his next one as I type. Also, he has published extensively in the field. Prof Gilmore is also a ready figure on the international scene and a great figure to meet in general. The other lectures on the international programme, no matter which specialised courses, all have extensive CVs in the field and the newest addition to the IL LLM Economic Law courses has not only published a great deal but comes to academia from several years of working for the UN.
Edinburgh is also an amazing city in which to live. Very student friendly pricing on housing and you can walk everywhere, though public transport is cheap, too. Lots of arts and discounts for students which make living in Edi a great experience...so much so that I have permanently based myself here!
Best of luck with your plans and happy holidays.
