Yes... a good knowledge of english is essential...you'll have at least 6.5 in IELTS unless you are a native english speaker or you have a degree conducted in english. Some unis may require 6 though.

As there are thousands of LLM, you should choose one based on your career and interest..browse this site for suitable course

Just apply everywhere - you never know.

The London colleges - UCL, KCL, LSE, SOAS, QMUL, are all very popular for LLMs so you may not get a place with a 2.2. A friend of mine got in LSE with an average of 58%. Birkbeck is not so popular for the LLM so you are likely to have most success getting an offer from them. If you want a good calibre uni you'd have more chance with the provincial redbricks.

A lot of the time it comes down to 'bums of seats' - so just apply.

Btw, the Kent/Brussels course looks very interesting!

Birkbeck has never really been acknowledged as a good LLM provider. It was never part of the old intercollegiate LLM of the UoL (UCL, KCL, SOAS, LSE, QMUL). While all the other colleges have extensive staff lists with specialisations in various areas of commercial and international law, Birkbeck does not. The faculty is very small in comparison and the specialisation leans more towards socio-legal issues/human rights. It tends to cater for part-timers or mature students.

All that said, it is still a good law school, just not anywhere near as good as the other UoL colleges.

However, your choice will determined on what subject you wish to specialise in....

I have taken the online Internet and Communication Law with QMUL - only one tester module. The work organisation really didn't suit me. I am now shopping for another LLM and evntually a physicall LLM. Could you tell me how many hours you physically need to be at the Uni ? I have a family and will have to commute to London and pay for my train tickets etc (15£ per day).
