Edinburgh is a more prestigious law school, whereas QMUL's IP programme is perhaps one of the best in the UK. I don't think you will be disappointed with either of them -- you may thus like to take other factors into consideration, such as their location, the range of modules they offer, etc.

By the way, I just visited Edinburgh before last Christmas and found the city so impressive, even though it was getting very cold already.

Hello tnuchpiam,
Thx for the info.,
If i take location & money matters into consideration then QMUL enjoys the location benefit being in london as most IP firm are there & in terms of finances also there LLm programme are some how less expensive then Edinburgh law school. But, except all this what all other factors will be favourable to pursue LLm (IP) at Edinburgh Law school as they have good career prospects in all web rankings & enjoys a good status in comparison to QMUL

I am doing the LL.M. in QMUL.

Cons-QMUL ranking is not at the top.

Pro-Being part of the University of London does mean a lot. Also living in London provides me with a perfect opportunity to meet with practitioners. We have guest lecturer who are prominent in their fields. I take the insurance module, we had classes at Lloyds of London. I am very happy.

However, the living cost is killing me. I pay 850 gbp/month for my accommodation in the International Hall.

Think a lot! It is a very expensive investment, especially if you are an international student.

QMUL is a good college but its certainly not the best in the UK for IP. Thats an overstatement to make. People who make such statements completely forget the reality that QMUL is nowhere compared to Qxbridge for IP or other top colleges in London. Besides also remember that getting in QMUL is not difficult at all as compared to other colleges in London and the law firms in London are aware of this fact, anyways thats another point.

I have friends doing IP Laws at UCL, Kings and QMUL and they all admit that the professors at UCL and Kings are far better than those at QMUL in IP. Professor David Llewelyn at KCL is one of the best in IP laws. I am not sure whether he takes lectures at QMUL. Check on their website whether he teaches there or not.

So IP Man, I suggest that you please check on the professors profiles teaching at QMUL or Edinburgh and then make your decision. Just dont believe on statements by someone saying that QMUL is the best for IP in the UK coz trust me my friend reality is far from perception.

QMUL is a good college and so is Edinburgh. Its a tough decision to make. Besides Edinburgh has a really good professor for IP named Hector Mcqueen, am sure IP Man you must have heard his name since you are so focused on IP Laws.

All the best and hope you make a very informed decision.

Smita Kheria is the director of the IP LLM at Edinburgh and she is extremely clever and very involved in students' well-being. She has also practised in the field, which is very helpful from a practical standpoint. In addition to Hector MacQueen, who is a leading academic in several fields and a member of the Scottish Law Commission and extremely helpful when students have queries, Charolette Waelde and Graeme Laurie are both highly sought after experts in the field and very friendly and helpful as well. You can see some of the recent faculty publications here http://www.law.ed.ac.uk/publications/index.aspx. In addition to faculty members being on top of the game in the relevant field, you also want a faculty which is accessible, and having done both my LLM and currently writing my PhD at Edinburgh I can say that all of these lecturer are brilliant and answering questions.
Plus, Edinburgh has a dedicated research centre (the SRIPT Centre) for the field http://www.law.ed.ac.uk/ahrc/ where they continue to produce amazing research in the area.
All of the faculty are typically happy to answer questions so you should definitely send an email...I'd start with Ms Kheria since she is in charge of the programme.
Best of luck with your decision!
