LLM Advice - QMUL/Edinburgh


ksr137

Hi all,

So, at this point, I've been fortunate enough to receive several offers. Not Oxbridge or LSE, but I applied to several great programs and now I'm faced with a tough choice.

I've narrowed it down to the Int'l Commercial Law LLM at Edinburgh and Int'l and Comparative Commercial Arbitration LLM at QMUL. If anyone has some advice on balancing the prestige/strength of program/costs & cost of living/quality of student life at these schools, or personal experience with these individual programs, that would be amazingly helpful.

A bit of background -- I'm a U.S. citizen who dabbled in international commercial law and arbitration in my JD program, and has worked for a corporate litigation firm since graduation. I want to end up working in energy/oil&gas/mineral resources arbitration, ideally, hence the Commercial Law focus and applications to the UK which is still choice of law for most contracts. My goal is to return to the States (at least eventually).

Any and all advice is appreciated! Please give me some feedback! I need to make a decision by August 1st for visa purposes :-/

Thank you!
