KCL(King's College) Vs LSE(London School of Economics)

Hi everybody,
I need a tip from you, regarding a potential Master of International (Public) Law (International Relations).
I would like to know which British University: (KCL-King's College of London) or LSE (London School of Economics and Political Science) is the best in order to study International Law, in terms of international reputation and prestige?
'Cause I have no idea and the ranking-position of both institutions is very similar (ARWU & New York Times).

Thank you very much !!
Looking forward to hearing from your advice !!

thank you, that is true !!

although at least in Spain, KCL is more famous than LSE....,, I think LSE is probably more focused on Business rather than Legal and Political studies.

I think that LSE has a better overall reputation... just my opinion though. If I had to make the same choice, I'd go to LSE.

I've had the opportunity to pursue summer school in both the university. Both the universities are great learning institutions however the following was observed by me as stark difference between the two:

1) Teaching Faculty: I'd put LSE's teaching faculty better than that of King's. It obviously then depends on the your course modules but overall kudos go to LSE.

Campus: Kings beats LSE hands down. With it's 4 campus selections, all in the heart of London and especially the strand and somerset house makes for a great experience.

Course: LSE for your selection of course and King's for criminal and more on field related modules.

Halls: though LSE has and spread out halls King's isn't far behind. One thing which is worth mentioning is that to get the facility of shower and bathroom attached to your room youll have to shell out more for LSE.

Overall LSE is better in ranking but King's has a more relaxed atmosphere at the same time great library facilities and equal intellectual background.
