Internationl Business and Commercial Law or European Business Law?

Dear Friends,


I find myself in the dilemma that I cannot decide between the University of Manchester and the University of Essex (Pallas LLM)..

I feel that the University of Manchester has overall a far greater reputation than the University of Essex has. Is it true for the Law departments as well?

The Pallas LLM sounds very interesting with lecturers around Europe coming to lecture, and trips to firms in London during the year. Also it has a much smalller number of students. Whereas the LLM in Manchester takes in around 100 students for the course.

Any students having studied either courses, hearing from you would be a great help. I have got to decide by tomorrow, and as I said I am unable to reach any decision.

Thanks and best wishes.

Manchester all the way.

It has a very good reputation and it is a top law school in the UK. Course selection is very good and it is supported by most of the top firms in the UK

It is an easy decision.

The city is very lively, student friendly and a great night out

Also looking forward for other opinons. Thanks

Guys sorry to break the bubble of all those vouching for how good Manchester Uni is (also known as Uniof ) but it is nothing as all of you seem to know of it above .
I got a chev scholarship and made the mistake of choosing Manchester Uni over the london ones being expensive and also because i had some relatives there and due to the costs of living which till date i regret . It is indeed embarrasing but i have to admit that i am appalled at the way LLM is conducted in this uni and for me it broke all my expectations at what education in the UK would be like . I have a million reasons not to recommend University of Manchester for LLM ( and only a few to do ) . Althought the rankings of the university have gone down in the past few years ( the rankings only represent the undergrad law school ranking btw) it is far better than what it should actually be . Most of the professors are either retired barristers out of touch with the current happenings in the legal sphere or Phd students who are usually doing it to get grants and are usually not much older (knowledgeable) than you are being stumped at usual interventions . Most of the studies are expected to take place before or after coming to class and the only thing done by professors is enlighten on topics given out of pre printed module sheets . The exams again are not fair as each question carries 33 marks and you are expected to understand and attempt all your semesters learnings at the risky attempt of 3 out of 4 questions which in my view can never justify a students ability . There have been instances where 98% students in a particular class have failed . Classes are usually 2-3 hours a day a maximum of 3 times a week leaving a lot of time for you to wonder . The Class would mostly be filled by South Asian (read India Pak SL Bangladesh) or South East Asian (Chinese Malaysian Korean ) students and a below 10% of east european students and only maybe 2%-3% of British students missing the whole point of getting an international experience as most of the British students take up LPC or training contracts after their LLB's . Finding Jobs are a big no no with a Manchester Uni LLM . Anyways looks like I can go on forever here so if you have any further questions please email me or message me here and i shall be very glad to help you out . Cheers.
