Durham or King's?


Hi everyone!

Ten days ago I got the offers from Durham (int. trade& commercial law) and King's. Still can't make up my mind. Can you suggest me the decision, please?

A big city or a small one is of no importance for me. The principal criterions are the quality of education and reputation of course. What do you think of the matter?

Hi,
I'm studying in Durham right now. The city is great and so is the university. There are changes going on at the law department with many law prof's with a great reputation leaving.
Therefore it is not sure at all how the teaching quality will be, and the research ranking might drop.
Just a word of caution about Durham, of coure I don't know anything about King's.
Good luck choosing!

Hi,

Why are the teachers leaving? Is it because they are retiring or are they going to teach at another university?
By the way how come there are only two different LLM degrees at Durham, plus the general LLM which is the mix of the two? Surely that meas there aren't a lot of teachers? I'm really disappointed because I wanted to go to Durham but I don't like the subjects offered, private and commercial law...
Are they likely to open a new LLM course in Human Rights or Public International Law?

Although Durham has great performance in the rankings of law school and my friend ,who did his Phd at Cambridge ,says it has a very good reputation in England and internationally .I did't apply to Durham,because the courses of LLM are far beyond my interests.My main interested areas are legal theory and human rights law. The courses provided by Durham are so...suprisingly few.

Yeah that's what I feel, they're very specialized and the "General LLM" is not a proper General Master in Law. Anyway that's what I feel, I'm really disappointed because I would have liked to apply and I'm still considering but waiting for offers from other unis.
By the way between Edinburgh, Durham,Bristol,Nottingham and Trinity College Dublin where would you go?

It seems that many of you don't like "int. trade& commercial law" or something like that. But conditions are quite different in my home. Majoring in "int. trade& commercial law" is usually easy for you to find a job.
