Clarification
I have had a couple of emails asking whether the scholarships apply to non-EU nationals. So for clarification the scholarships are applicable to all potential students non-EU and EU. As long as the entry criteria are met we will look at applications from anywhere on the planet.

ONLY TRUTH

I wouldn't recommend city law school at all out of personal experience even with any scholarship/internship - these incentives shows the desperation of city law school to get students in for LLM.

Desperate measures in difficult times!!

Go for a recognized brand - LSE/King's - plus the faculty is crap - with many subjects outsourced via contract lecturers, who are there because of personal contacts.

The LLM Program solely relies on 'foreign aid' from eu and non eu students. No locals there! I can bet if people if this law school doesn't gimmick out via so called internships and scholarships - this program would terminate on its own.

Not to mention the reputation is already in tatters with the program having special appetite for foreign students especially Russians (females).

Sad, but be advised accordingly. End of the day this is all business

Good luck to all. Over to you AR

You call yourself "only truth" (that's the beauty of the Internet anonymity for you), but I'm afraid it's ONLY LIES in your post. I have taken City Law School's LLM program and I have only positive things to say about my time there. The professors are really knowledgeable and willing to help both in academic terms and otherwise, the courses were interesting and useful and there were lots of internships for the best performing students (I presume you were not one of them, which explains why are you so bitter and why you are spamming these lies under under each City related news; you are the same spammer who claimed to have taken the 2008/2009 course but didn't know how many and from which countries the participants were, right? You cannot exactly expect high scores with such lack of ability to grasp the reality, can you?). And your allegations that some professors have acted inappropriately are absolutely NOT TRUE.

If City are offering scholarships, this can only be good in these testing times for all those bright students out there who would like to take an LLM, but could not afford it, so why don't you get a life and stop spamming your lies under different nick names about an esteemed law school and dignified professors who do not deserve it?

Dear Only Truth,

I was really surprised reading your comment. Looking at it, one can infer that you had purely personal problem with a member of staff, or other student. Stop keeping grudges, I see nothing constructive in your post. How could such great news, as giving the opportunity to 4 people to get their high quality further legal education, induce you to such a bitter response?

I was a part of City LLM program in past and have only good impression of it.

Firstly, the course is highly student oriented, offering a broad variety of courses, never the less focusing on specific sectors, vital to modern market banking and finance, competition, maritime, etc. (Not to waste time, anyone can check their webpage for details). Lecturers are all practicing professionals and give to students not only dry theory, but real hands on examples from their current experience, which is paramount for graduates in their further employment.

Secondly, each student shall receive personal attention from the faculty. Professors and administrative staff are easy to reach and communicate. Guidance and help through each step of your program (not only on academic issues, but to arrange ones living and other personal issues) is guaranteed. Not to mention that students social life at City is rich and well organised.

Choosing a University to further his/her professional path, one should concentrate on complex of factors, such as: professionalism of the faculty, their feedback, employment opportunities, students place at Unis life, and many more. City University, in my opinion, scores most of these points. In the end, it really works in combination of what school gives to you, and your personal performance and desire to study.

Kind regards.

I don't see why you should criticize Only Truth. This discussion board is a great way to learn about Universities and it is important to hear both, positive and negative views. If you had a great experience at City that's good for you. But I don't see why you should assume that Only Truth had personal problems with staff members and this is why his opinion of the University is overall a negative one. He merely pointed out certain factors which in his opinion did not amount to an overall valuable LLM experience. Also, although I think it's great that you shared your opinion on the program, I can't really believe that City scores that high in your vital 'three factors' since City's performance in rankings is mediocre at best.

Trying to revive interest in the flagging LLM programme at City Law School by such measures could be deemed by some as being, perhaps, 'too little, too late'....somewhat akin to flogging a dead horse now....but hey, give some thought to all the lecturers associated with this programme.... what if the LLM department all together closes down at City University?

Generally speaking, the person responsible for running a particular department in any 'C' tier law School may periodically have to justify the necessity of running such a department to the management of the University. Therefore, now and then, such scholarship schemes may be floated hoping international students, perhaps, would continue showing interest in the LLM programmes of the University. As, among other things, a minimum number of students may be required each year to justify continuing the LLM department.

Dear lorena,

If I am criticizing the so-called "Only Truth", it is because he is always posting (as I have pointed out) only lies. I can say that, because I have undertaken a LLM in City myself. Even more, I have been there the same year he claimed to be and he didn't know the exact number and the nationality of the participants. He has changed his nick name since I have caught him about an year ago, but his lies remain the same. Please note that he is not commenting on the ranking of the University or the quality of the courses, he is only making fake allegations regarding the integrity of the teaching staff. I know these people personally and it is simply not true.

As for the ranking of the University, once again I have to say that the quality of the teaching and the conditions there are great, plus I know plenty of City graduates who have very good jobs. And no, there is no risk of shutting the law school down - they are doing excellent job, as the ever increasing number of students in City is showing.

Best regards,
LT

It's rather encouraging to see how my post has generated interest - by some who I see as ardent supporter(s) of City Law School's LLM Program (perhaps insiders defending their course) and others who are objective and have given their unbiased opinion out of their first hand experience.

I don't know what LT's aka Italev's course modules were and the tutors who taught him/her and what year he was in...though he/she seems to know more about me and is trying to get personal - no clue why!!

(1) Nevertheless, just for clarification, my contribution to this forum is based out of my first hand personal experience and countless interactions with the people who run/administer and teach the LLB & LLM program.

(2) One quick fact just to reiterate my previous post: many of the additional modules are being outsourced to teachers (read outsiders) who are not resident as full time employees of law department but are only ad hoc, contractual per hour/session people deployed to increase the variety of offerings in the program.

(3)Further my understanding and constructive criticism stems from comparative analysis of top tier law programs in London which give better value and exposure to say the least.

Please note that City University as a standalone entity is regarded pretty well (being in the City helps too); but here we are talking about specifics: for instance the Cass Business School has a very good reputation but then City Law School is a another story.

Giving out few scholarships/internships and attracting EU/Non EU students is a classic marketing tactic so as to get people in - smells desperation, never seen LSE's and KCL's going this way. Education especially (master's programs) have always been business - nothing wrong with that, provided you get quality teaching and that qualification(s) translates into better openings.

Users of this forum are advised discretion and can form their own opinion. My effort is only to lay bare the facts so that somebody who invests his/her time and money in this program knows what he is getting into!

My very best wishes and good luck to all.

Well, "Only Truth", if I am "getting personal" with you it is only because you are making wrong personal claims about some of the City professors (check your first comment under this topic as well as your comments under other City articles, if you cannot remember that; btw I cannot help saying that perhaps this type of short memory is among the reasons for your negative "first hand personal experience").

Yes, I am "ardent City supporter", because I have undertaken the course, had a great time there and found it very useful for my career. Just like the vast majority of my course mates. So I am as much entitled to share my "first hand personal experience" as are you - the only difference between us being that, unlike you, I am indeed saying only truth. Besides, frankly, your spamming under ANY City topic is quite annoying (not to mention that it hints at some mental issues) and somebody should explain the people who know nothing about City, that you are just a bitter liar.

It is nice to see to see you shying from these ridiculous personal allegations for a change and trying to say something about the Law School and the program. Although I would call your critiques rather unsatisfactory. I don't know what courses have you taken/failed either so it is hard to argue about your particular professors, but surely even if some of them had not been full-time City employees, this should not in itself affect the quality of the courses, should it? As for the reputation and the "desperation" of the City Law School, these are rather subjective concepts, but I would say that the ever increasing number of students (especially in the LLM in international commercial law we are discussing right now) tends to refute your "concerns".

Good luck too and why not get a life instead of stalking every City posting?
