IP in Cambridge?


kikiblue

Dear all,
I am planning to apply for LLM in the UK as an international student. My primary interests are in IP, especially trademarks. So far I liked course offerings in LSE, UCL, and QMU. However, Cambridge is an overall best-ranked programme in the country, even though it is somwhow missing from IP-specific rankings (or am I mistaken? I could not find it. I am sure that it is not because of the quality, probably the specialization is rare there). I do understand that it is very competitive, but would it be worth it for someone in IP if I get admitted?
The thing is, I would be applying through my home country's scholarship scheme, therefore I can only choose 3 schools, so no "long shot, see what happens" for me.

My career goal is joining a reputable international law firm back home (and the best firms are all British here). Which university would be the most impressive?

Thank you in advance!
