I received offers from Warwick, Edinburgh and QMUL.

I am interested in Legel Theory and Constitutional Law. I am not sure which LLM choose.

My obective is to purse an academic career: LLM, PHD, post-doc...

Any advices?

I have the same problem. I got offers for Legal Theory LLM from

King's College
Warwick
York
Edinburgh
Queen Mary

Maybe Warwick is the best.

Someone who can help us to decide?

Personally I'd go for Edinburgh. But that's just me, for the areas I'm interested in Edinburgh professors seem to publish more and generally have a higher profile. Warwick is probably stronger if you're into a more socio-legal approach (at least that is their reputation at undergrad) but I wouldn't say it has a better reputation overall (they're certainly lower down the pecking order than Edinburgh and Kings)

If I were you I'd do some research into the different lecturers/professors and see which ones align most with your interests.

Thanks!

Warwick is more eclectic, and yes, too socio-legal.

Edinburgh is too far, but very good.

York is more theoretic and very good for Legal Theory + public law

King’s doesn’t have theoretic llm.

QMUL is lower level than the others.

So maybe York is the best for me?

As I said, it's mainly based on my personal research interests. Stephen Tierney and Neil Walker for example publish a lot of articles on subjects I find interesting.

Hi there,

Edinburgh graduate here . I'm afraid there is no LLM in Legal Theory on offer. But that being said, Edinburgh does indeed have a strong research culture in Legal Theory and LLM students are more than encouraged to attend the legal theory discussion group, the legal theory festival with many esteemed international speakers and guests, and generally there are many opportunities to engage in the - very vibrant - legal theory community. Especially if you want to pursue further research. PS- Have you considered an LLM R instead? Anyway if anybody has any questions I'd be happy to help.
