The crux of your question lies in you chosen area of concentration. In your case: "International Business Law". That could mean a variety of things since most business tends to be international and will invariably have a legal element. KCL has other qualitative aspects such as health provision whereas is LSE is strait-jacketed in a Public/Political dimension.

LSE would be a good place to learn International Business Law, and an even better one to study Public International Law.

Both KCL and LSE are great colleges, and it's hard to chose as both have positive and negative points. To be honest, for international business law I think you'd be better at QMUL, and for PIL, UCL. Of course, "international business law" is a very wide area, so it depends on exactly which areas you're looking at...

But I would say, choose your college based on the institution that offers the best teaching/resources/staff in your chosen specialisation. E.g. find out who teaches the courses you're interested in and what they offer (e.g. publication opportunities, career contacts, conferences, moots, do the 'star' academics actually teach the course etc).

Simply relying on LSE>KCL, or KCL>LSE, or LSE is higher in the rankings etc. is unhelpful. If you keep an eye on the rankings, you'll see the London colleges frequently move up and down the rankings, and so does the 'in' London college for a given year.

I did the intercollegiate LLM a few years back and was fortunate enough to be taught by academics from all four major colleges: UCL, KCL, LSE and QMUL. The best teaching experiences and opportunities (by far) came from UCL and QMUL, followed by KCL, and the worst (surprisingly!) being LSE. One LSE lecturer taught virtually all her course from a US textbook, literally paraphrasing the text, and another who simply mumbled from a script (I won't say my speciality as it would expose their identities!). Needless to say, a few students felt short-changed.

I had earlier expressed my views on this post as LSE>KCL. As an overall rating I would still put LSE above KCL.

However, lately, I have found out that International Business Law module in KCL is excellent and their faculty is very well known in the legal fraternity especially Prof. Ravi Tennnekon.
