INTERNATIONAL COMMERCIAL LLM SWANSEA vs. EXETER


as in the title...

I would like to know a little of views on the two universities ... academic profile, campus&facilities ... and any other reflection that can guide further research ...

I already know that Swansea is well known for its maritime law tradition ... but, in general terms, which is more attractive of two for commercial law in a broad sense?

...the one has an institution of trade and maritime law ... the other one a centre in commercial law but...what reputation?

If I look at the average of the rankings, Exeter is a dozen places before Swansea ... but we know how those rankings are subjective ...

I await for your kind opinions and thank you in advance ...

You are absolutely right- most tables are based on undergraduate data anyway so they do not reflect the position for LLMs- I did my LLM at Swansea- fantastic location, very good teachers and most significantly excellent contacts with the legal practice- Also it is not only maritime law at Swansea, trade and commercial law are also strenghts. I would strongly recommend Swansea to you.

I did my LLM in International Commercial Law in Swansea and from the first day I realised that my choice was the right one. A great number of commercial law modules were on offer and it was indeed a very tough decision to choose only 4. All the teachers were very approachable and ready to help us. The city is very picturesque, as it is built by the sea and the locals are very friendly. I would go for Swansea again and again!

I did my LLM in Swansea University and I would recommend it every time. My LLM was in Maritime and Commercial Law, which gave me the flexibility to choose more commercial subjects and from what I found, Swansea was the best (although, I must be honest and say that I am biased since the university is now my alma mater!) If it is any indication, I believe Professor Andrew Tettenborn (one of the very best lecturers I have EVER come across and who is excellent in Banking law and Trade law) who teaches in Swansea originally taught in Exeter and chose to come to Swansea. If really, really good lecturers change universities, I would take that as a good indication as to where the students should be going! (Of course, I am only speculating, but I think sometimes this kind of information helps a lot!)
