LLM In Comparative Law Edinburgh


Hi, I'm going to apply to this programme and was just wondering if anyone had any thoughts on it? I know its pretty much the only programme of its kind in the UK and the academics teaching it are all at the top of their game but I was still wondering if anyone had studied it and had any comments on it? Or on the law school and Edinburgh in general?

This isn't really the only program of its kind in the UK. If you want other options, you can check out the following programs:

UCL: LL.M. in Comparative Law
University of London: LL.M. specialization in Comparative and foreign law
Trinity College Dublin: LL.M. in International and Comparative Law

There are other programmes in comparative law, but few that deal with comparative property law, Trinity's program unfortunately is comparative in name only, it has few substantial comparative courses. On the other hand Edinburgh has comparative property law, trust law, contract etc... UCL I did know about and does have substantial courses but ruled out due to the absurdly high cost, UOL I didn't know about but it is solely by distance.

I would say its the only course of its kind outside of London, especially given that you can take 5 or 6 modules plus a diss rather than the 3 or 4 others limit you to. Still thanks for the heads up about the other programmes.
