Hi everyone

does anyone know anything regarding the LLM program at BPP University in London?...Maybe it could be a cheaper alternative to KCL, QMUL, UCL, LSE.

What do you think about it?

Thank you



I hope this helps, BPP is VERY reputable when it comes to the BPTC or LPC, it could be the best when it comes to this 2 courses..BUT in regards to an LLM: BPP was gained University status this year, until last year it was a college, therefore doing an LLB or an LLM so early is not such a good idea. Especially if you can get in LSE, UCL,KCL or Queen Mary, they have some of the top law schools in the world, so an LLM from BPP will not be an equivalent alternative in any way.

I'm doing my LLB at BPP graduating next May, and didn't consider even for a second staying on to do my LLM there. As Law01 says, it has only been offering academic courses for a very short period of time - I think five years for the LLB and perhaps the same for the LLM.

Neither the LLB or LLM have any great reputation and I agree with Law01 that you would be crazy to do an LLM at BPP over any of the other London universities. If you are a viable candidate for entry there and it is a cost issue, I would suggest that you take a year to save up and then try again.

I'm not saying that the LLM is positively bad, actually the modules look perfectly reasonable, and some of the tutors have good reputations etc. Just that it in no way competes with the others that you have listed.

Thank you for your response, I really appreciate that. Mark W., I think that I will follow your advice. In case I will not be admitted to KCL, QMUL, LSE, UCL it's better to wait another year.

Thank you for your response Law01. You are confirming my doubts about LLM at BPP...


As I said it is excellent for the BPTC and LPC, I will probably do my BPTC there, but, it's quite a risk for an LLM. Where else did you apply?

I agree with your points, I would also like to ask that most universities provide financial help to do an LLM there.

I'm in my final year of law school...I'm just collecting information for the next year...generally speaking, I will apply to the four uni above mentioned plus Oxford-Cambridge. US law schools are too expensive. My budget allows me to do an LLM in London, but I will certainly ask for a scholarship.
My field of interest is International Business Law.


Are you applying this year or are you taking a year off? Because if you want to start your LLM in September then you should apply now as vourses in high ranked universities fill in very fast

I think I'll take a year off...I'll graduate in november-december 2014...
I'd like to work in a big law firm (or in a corporate legal division) at least one year and then apply for an LLM...!
Anyway my goal isn't to work in a law firm as a lawyer...I'd like to work as a corporate counsel in banks or multinational companies...

Thank you for your interest!


I see you are from ITaly, are you studying in the UK at the moment?
