I think when you take "fame" into account, UCL would be the best choice.

Regarding location, UCL and KCL are both in central London. Queen Mary is on Mile End, which is zone 2 of London. However, if you're gonna study commercial law at Queen Mary your classes will be on their central London campus. So, in the end all three are in zone 1/central London.

I'm an UCL alumnus so I can say that UCL is in a great location. The law faculty is on Endsleigh Gardens, just off Euston Square subway/tube station. The main campus where you have the main and secondary libraries are a within short walking distance. My fiancée did her LLM at KCL at the same time when I was at UCL and KCL is also in a great spot in London. Located on the Strand (where most of the classes take place), it's in the heart of central London, close to Covent Garden and loads of stuff to do nearby.

When I first applied for the LLM, I had this idea that I didn't wanna go to London. I wanted to go to a quieter and smaller city. But now, after spending the best year of my life in that city I definitely recommend you go to London. That's the best city on Earth!!!! I can't say anything about Durham and Bristol 'cause I've never been to those places, but I went to Edinburgh. The city is great, but I reckon you'd be better off going to Edinburgh as a tourist while doing your masters in London than the other way around.

As to cost, London, in my opinion, isn't as costly as many people say. The only thing that is actually expensive is accommodation, especially in central London. However, food and leisure aren't that expensive. I'm in Canada at the moment and I believe everything is much more expensive around here than it is in London.

Market acceptance and reputation probably go together hand in hand. Hence, UCL would be the best choice in my opinion.

Buddy I have also opted to go for LLM in International Commercial Law. After a lot of deliberations,I have opted for Kings College. I have my own reasons for it :-
1) Faculty.
2) Module Structure
3) Reputation
4) Exposure
The other colleges which are good for LLM in International Commercial Law are QMUL , LSE , Edinburgh .Don't even think about Durham here.....u won't get the exposure essential to develop your career there. No hardships against UCL but they are highly regarded and have a grt faculty as far as International Law is concerned but I am not sure for International Commercial Law. Best of Luck. !!!

I got offers from KCL, QMUL, Edinburgh and I want to take up Intellectual property. So this is rather confusing, I'm confused between KCL and QMUL. Still waiting for a few other schools !

ONLY TRUTH
KCL/UCL seems to be of a good value - although I wonder what marketability of these courses would remain in the current scenario of almost zero legal hiring of international (non- EU) and even EU postgraduates...

Given the preset state of euro economies - which are struggling for recovery, not to mention Britain which has high level of skilled unemployment (read finance, legal and other service industries) plus the impending danger of rapidly slipping into recession, we can see the frustration of well qualified lawyers desperate for a decent employment.

Re QMUL: I don't really consider their course offerings value for money.

Needless to say: With more and more visa restrictions, expensive transportation and rise in cost of a bare decent renting in and around London - add to that negligible scope of getting hired in an international law firm (diversity quotas are complete eyewash) and ever decrease in public spending by the govt., one has to scratch his head to figure out how an LLM would bring in returns.

So all the good luck!
