Help: SOAS vs Warwick vs Leiden?


sdj2014
Hi guys

I received offers from the following schools:
Leiden (LLM in Public International Law (Adv Studies))
Warwick (LLM in International Development Law and Human Rights)
SOAS (LLM in Law, Development and Governance)

Given the fact that I do not want to practice as a lawyer - but want to do PhD eventually, which one is the best?

I have a political science degree and a law degree already. And I would like to do my PhD either in transitional justice or post-conflict development.

Help appreciated!!!

If PhD (and I assume academia) is your track, then I would suggest the advanced LLM at Leiden. They have 2 tracks and both of them touch on transitional justice and post-conflict development. And check the list of faculty for the advanced LLM program. They're world-renowned in international law. The Hague is also within reach, where most international courts and tribunals are located. I believe you also get to use the library at the ICJ.

Thanks bluecrown, I figured the same...Leiden seems to have the most flexible PhD track (and least expensive). But in terms of PhD recognition (esp in Asia, as I'm from Hong Kong), would you think Warwick/SOAS rank over Leiden?

And for a career in th e IOs, would you rank differently?

Thanks!!

I am from Asia and I think that Leiden is well respected in the field. Warwick is well respected as well, but it's quite young (I believe it's 50 years old) and I'm not too sure in the field of international law. Leiden and Warwick are more reputable than SOAS--at least I'm quite certain of that. Speaking through my own experience though, I applied and highly considered Leiden, but didn't consider Warwick at all. I'm currently taking courses in international law, human rights and development (and also took transitional justice as a seminar).
