Durham.

While all universities you named are only mediocre, Durham is the "least bad of them".

Additionally, they do have a focus on EU law.

Hi raffap, please ignore eppendorf....for some reason he posts in all threads mocking people and calls all universities mediocre and bad just because he got into cambridge....i doubt he has ever been in the uk....all of the Universities you have mentioned are highly repute and of high calibre...I would say Queen Mary due to the opportunities offered in London, BUT I believe Durham and Warwick are of the same level, maybe even better. I would suggest any of these 3.

when you say international law, what type do you specifically mean? if you mean public international law etc., then i'd probably say leiden in terms of career prospects for IOs - you'd be well situated there for internships given the proximity to the hague (eurojust, europol, ICTY, ICC, ICJ, PCA etc).

as for phd prospects, i'm really not sure - unless you have an identified specialised interest already and that is better catered for at one institution, i think it's probably much of a muchness between notts, leiden, qmul and edinburgh.

if it's private international law i have no idea on either front - sorry!

thank you law01 and pippaw this is very helpful!
I am very interested in WTO law, economic regulation, and all that has to do with consumers' protection.
I must admit the city of Edinburgh is probably the most attractive to me, but i would rather choose the best program in terms of professors, research and academic reputation, so what do you think?
