Leeds VS. Edinburgh?


3z.K
Hi all,
I've been admitted to several law schools for an LLM degree in Business law / commercial law, some of which are: City University, Essex, Leicester, Newcastle, Leeds, and Edinburgh.

The best two as I know are Leeds and Edinburgh and I would appreciate your guidance on which one I should attend.

I know that Edinburgh has the higher ranking and name however where I'm from Leeds is more known, also my personal preference for the city is Leeds.

If you have any thoughts or input that could help me decide I would highly appreciate it.

Thanks

You cant compare these 2 universities. edinburgh is only comparable to Oxbridge, lse, ucl, kings, durham and warwick. But leeds is quite cheaper with lower fees and still a good university!

Heyy all. i was searching for llm guides and stumbled upon here, i had a question how would you rate Leeds and any other university for that matter.
If you could be kind enough to tell me which university would you recommend, i have a 2:2 in University of London's International LLB (Hons)Programme.

Thanks to all in advance

Hi,
I'm not familiar with the grading system in the UK, however each university under the entry requirement has the required grading for entry.
As for how to rate the universities, I looked at how the university ranks overall and withing each field.
There are other ways that I've seen in threads here on the website such as the published research by the university and by what the faculty have accomplished.

Since most universities in the UK don't require an application fee I suggest that you apply to all the universities that you are interested in keeping in mind that you have a plan A, B, and C list.

I don't remember the exact grade requirement for Leeds specifically but if you go under the course you want to take there you'll find the grade requirement easily.

umm one thing all these universities saying they require a 2.1, do they really accept only a 2.1 or do they also go on with a 2.2 as well
for example Leeds

Well if you have work experience or other extracurricular activities they might consider that instead. Also a good personal statement and recommendation letters are very helpful.

Couple of things to bear in mind re: Edinburgh. 1) I don't think they'll consider you without a 2.i in something; and 2) the law school is under heavy refurbishment for the next two years (and has been for the last two) and so while it may have a high international ranking and reputation, you won't be having a great experience.

Hi all,

As an Ed. Law student, I do recommend it. Very great place to study LLM. I am really satisfied so far, in terms of teachers, fruitful classes, facilities and the total atmosphere here at the Ed. Campus. Most of the teachers have real knowledge of law and the perfect ability to transfer it to the students. I m enjoying it :)

Hope you choose the best for you :)

Best of luck,

Hi Everyone,

I'm the Director of Postgraduate Taught Studies (i.e. LLM and MSc degrees) at Edinburgh Law School, and just wanted to let you all know about what's happening in relation to our refurbishment.

The magnificent Old College building where Edinburgh Law School has been based for the past couple of hundred years is indeed currently being refurbished in an exciting multi-million pound project.

In order to enable the refurbishment to progress, and so that there won't be any disruption to us from the forthcoming building works, this summer (2016) Edinburgh Law School moved to a temporary and convenient new home in George Square, right at the heart of the University of Edinburgh, and very close to the University Library, student union, etc.

As such, our LLM degree programmes are running as normal this year, and we anticipate that everyone taking the LLM degrees at Edinburgh should be able to enjoy the same high quality learning experience as in previous years.

Very best wishes,
Richard J

As far as I can see, the David Hume Tower is a much more practical building than Old College was. I don't think the experience is worse. Having taught in both buildings, I would pick comfort over exterior beauty.
