LLM in Corporate Law / International Business Law - KCL, UCL or QMUL?


PC95
Hey guys! I'm looking for an LLM in either KCL, UCL or QMUL focused on Corporate Law or International Business Law or even Finance Law

That being said I found these options:
- International Finance Law at KCL
- International Business Law at KCL
- International Corporate Law at UCL
- Commercial and Corporate Law at QMUL

Which one do you think is the best one?

It is difficult to give you an answer: we all choose one LLM and we can testify only for this LLM.

It depends on so many -personal- factors: the reputation of the university in your country, modules you want to attend, alumni in law firms you would like to apply and so on...

Personally I choose the LLM in International Financial Law at KCL and I have no regret. It is a great experience and I have met wonderful people from 63 countries! In France KCL is very prestigious (better than UCL, QMUL or LSE) and according to rankings the LLM in Financial Law is one of the best worldwide (5th according to this website). I wanted to expand my knowledge in financial regulation and I took very interesting modules like EU Financial Regulation, Financial Risk, Stability & Regulation and also Competition Law in Financial Services. Some other students are focus on "pure" financial law and Professor Ravi Teneekoon is a top gun for them. Look all the modules available on the website. What I like at KCL is that I can choose all my modules: I also decided to take Negotiation, Global Law in Climate Change... even though they are not directly linked to financial law!
For all my modules my professors have invited guest lecturers and it was very well appreciated.
It is also important to say that KCL, the KCL Law Society and the Post Graduate Law Society organize a lot (it is impressive) of events with firms, law firms or social activities. I know it is not the same for all universities.
At KCL we also have a good relationship with LSE law students and we have some events together. In contrast, we never met any UCL or QMUL students at events organized by LSE, KCL or law firms.

I hope it helps and that students from other universities will do the same ;-)

Hi there,

I'm actually in the same position (same courses!) and find it very hard to make a decision..did you get any further? I'm leaning towards King's at the moment, however quite a few people have strongly recommended QML (mostly UK practitioners).
Have you made your choice yet? I have to decide by the 31st and am nowhere close to deciding.
Cheers :)

I applied to King's but I'm still deciding if I should apply to QMUL and UCL. I really like the amazing choice of modules that QMUL has but on the other hand King's is more known in my country . So I dont know... maybe i'll wait till I get an answer from King's and then I'll decide if I'll apply to the others

Thanks !! I also think King's has a better reputation here in Portugal so I decided to apply to King's. Maybe I'll do the International Financial Law LLM. Thanks for the help ! :)

Same here! One UK practitoner told me QML apparently established these kind of courses first and therefor has a lot of variety and is greatly appreciated in the field.. however I would also lean towards saying King's is more prestigious. I have also read somehwere that going to QML is somewhat of a defeat in the UK as apparently people who don't get King's/UCL go there (and some of my UK friends reacted like that as well), however I can't find anyhting to really substantiate that..
Anyway, good luck with the applications and let me know if you decided or find out anymore valuable info, I will hopefully have decided by next week :)
cheers

Hi, I am applying for the full-time LL.M. programme. I want to specialise in International Business Law. I had some doubts regarding the application process.

How long should my personal statement be? What questions should it address?
Do I need to submit a writing sample as well? If yes, how long should my writing sample be?
Do I also need to upload my CV/resume?

I would be grateful to you if you could answer my queries. The online prospectus and the FAQs do not address these.

Hey there !! You only need to do a personal statement and not the other things you mentioned. About the statement you have a 4000 characters box where you should write it. They dont mention what you should adress but I talked about why I wanted to do an LLM at King's , a little bit about my education (specifically in Law) and about my career goals :)

Hope this helps you
