KING's or QUEEN for IP Law ?


angy
Hello to everybody,
I received two offers for the LLM in Intellectual Property Law that's my field. Both King's College and Queen Mary accepted me. But now I really don't know which is the best school. Firstly, I thought was King's, but then I saw some ranking university list in which the Queen Mary was valued better than King's especially for the IP law. Someone can help me ?

king's has much the better law reputation in general EXCEPT for IP law, which is QM's speciality. so if you are really keen on just doing IP classes, then I guess QM could be the better option, though only marginally so.

another factor to consider is physical location. kings has a much nicer campus in a much more convenient location.

in any case, you're in a good position whichever option you choose. good luck with your choice.

Not that I'm disagreeing that QM has a better general IP reputation but doesn't David Llewelyn teach at King's? I don't think one really loses out much - in terms of firm marketability - if one can cite Professor Llewlyn as one's thesis supervisor.

I'd lean towards Queen Mary - it has an IP Institute and recognised expertise in IP. (Followed by Edinburgh, not King's).

Thanks lot to you guys!!

I am still unsure about KCL and QM, but at the end I think that both are good universities. Probably I will choose QM because even my boss, in the IP firm where I work, suggested me the second one.
I really dont know :( Is someone attending one of that colleges right now?

I wanted to apply to QMUL by early March, but right now, after reading that so many people are sending their applications and others have already been accepted I'm starting to get very nervous!
Another problem is that even though I did quite well in my degree I don't have a brilliant qualification and I'm very concerned about my chances of getting into this uni...
I'm Spanish and I've read that we need a 7/10 in our degree but I have a 6'5/10 (I studied in an uni that is known for being very hard). I've had good marks on the subjects related with the LLM. Anyone knows if QMUL is very strict with their entry requirements?

Hello everyone,
I'm facing the same dilemma. I've received offers from both QM and KCL and I want to specialise in IP law as well. The trade reputation seems to lean towards QM for this course, as also certain LL.M rankings, and I've heard that the location and residential areas of QM are also more favourable to students, as firstly, the college is located near the law district of London, and secondly, the lodgings are more cohesive as compared to KCL which consists of isolated apartments. The problem, however, is that KCL seems to have a higher reputation overall, in terms of being a better brand name - hence leading to the confusion! Help please!

QM. no doubt.
I had the same dilemma and I've talked to some of my professors and a few lawyers and they all told me QM is 10 times better when it comes to IP.

Thanks LeeCo! Are you aware of the differences in accomodation of the two colleges? Which one provides better accomodation?

hi there,

kings is a good choice for sure.
But I just did my LL.M in IP law at Queen Mary and I strongly recommend this school, if your passion is IP. There are a lot of advantages e.g. the EIPIN conference, where queen mary is part of a five university conferenc in two European locations and the very the famous MIPLC programme from Munich takes part there too. Plus the campus isnt that since you never have to go to Mile end, you will basically have classes at Russel Square, which is Kings and LSEs area too.

And if you like David LLewelyn, well i guess you must because he reads a brilliant class, they have a colloboration class with Kings, QM and UCL in Trademarks too.

Si would recommend for IP, at Queen Mary you can have it all.

But anyway, I just had a brilliant yerar there, so I wish you the same...

cheers

Hi Farki,
Thanks so much for your input! Where did you stay while studying at QMUL?

well I don't read IP in QM but its regarded an extremely strong module and quite reputed as well. This is what I got to know from my peers who are at present pursuing IP there.

Infact IP, apart from arbitration, is the only module for which QM stands out amongst others...and there are sometimes combined lectures for UCL,QM and Kings by their respective professors in IALS at Russell Sq. Also they do have dedicated research facilitiy and high outputs from such.

As most lectures take place in Russell Sq. or Lincoln's Inn Field...I would suggest to go for University of London Intercollegiate Halls which are just walking distance from the places mentioned above. It might slightly be expensive than the ones offered in Mile End, but its worth staying there because its cental london and everything that you need for academics like accessing IALS and the other university libraries, bookshops are stone's throw away and you also save on travelling expenses.
