Based on prestige and rankings, King's is better. But, for certain specialisations (arbitration, IP, tax...maybe others) QMUL comes out on top.

It's difficult to say if either will increase your chance of employment.

In terms of prestige, I'd say:
LSE
UCL
KCL
QMUL

But it depends where you live, LSE is very prestigious in the N. American market, KCL seems very prestigious in Europe.

Putting aside the ranking/brand issue, it's difficult to say which has the better LLM programme. They are all pretty good, but vary greatly depending on what area of law you're interested in. Focus on the college that offers the best courses/faculty in the area of law you want to study. If brand is important, your best bet is LSE.

Are you looking for a General LLM or a Specialised module? That makes all the difference.
I am also applying to all of these colleges and QMUL is my first choice.
I was going to apply to US colleges as well, but the fees are ridiculously high and so I dropped the idea.

For IP, King's is the best!
I really don't know about the others, but all these three are renowned colleges so it really doesn't matter!

For practice in Corporate or Business law I think so LSE is the best because of its good courses, library and environment. Moreover, I have applied for International Business Law at LSE and they have been quite helpful through the process i.e. responding to my queries on time and accepting my scanned transcripts etc. I think if one has good credentials then you should apply for LSE. In my opinion its course structure and wide variety of studying is better than other London colleges.

QMUL has excellent commercial law LLMs. LSE has an overall brand value that is highest. For competition, KCL has the highest 'wow' factor amongst its permanent and visiting profs. UCL has always been massively powerful in public law, in particular. But they all teach all subjects. So it depends on your course and why you want to specialize.
You must realize that US LLMs are a very different experience to the UK, in the UK teaching LLMs is the top of the research-led teaching tree, not so in the US where the JD is the sine qua non of teaching.
