Glasgow vs Edinburgh vs KCL

Hi,

I intend to doing an LLM in banking and finance law or competition law in 2014/2015.

Which school do you think is best? Also, do the rankings make that much of a difference for LLM?

Thanks

In terms of rankings, the way I see it is that they are a good benchmark for program comparison, but it shouldn't be the end-all, be-all for your decision. There are so many other factors - look into where graduates end up, and how satisfied grads are with their program, etc.

Another thing to do would be to look at the curriculum for the individual programs. What specialization would you do at KCL? International Financial Law? If so there's a guy on this board who raved about it not too long ago:
