Hello,

Which is the best maritime law in UK besides of Southamptom...I mean career options and prospect

1.Swansea
2.Nottingham

I got an unconditional offer from all and I have to choose...


As far as career options are concerned, you cannot go wrong with either one. I am sure that soon the usual fanboy brigade will appear and try to explain why "X" offers the best career prospect and why choosing "Y" would lead you into career-wise perdition... However, in my eyes any of these choices is as good (or as bad) as the other...

P.S.
What are your career plans - do you want to work in the London market or to return home to your domestic maritime law market?

Thanks very much for your reply Flori!!!

I'm not looking to work in the London market... I'd live to work for a law firm or shipping industry (maersk or similar) at SOUTH EAST ASIA: singapur, hong kong, shangai etc

I hope is "realistic" due the fact that maritime law is very "international",
what do you think ???

thanks

To be honest, I have probably seen too many shattered dreams among my friends and class-mates from the LLM programme to give a truly unbiased opinion. Many of them were already fully qualified lawyers in their non-UK home countries and - encouraged by the glossy leaflets - considered the LLM programme to be something like an entry ticket to the London or the global maritime law market. Well, it worked out for a few of them - most of them did not find anything and returned to their home countries, often for the job they had left in order to obtain the LLM. I fully admit that this is entirely anecdotal evidence and that the numbers are not high enough to represent statistically significant data.

Still, if the "career booster"-effect was as high as advertised in the brochures, one would assume that the law schools themselves would include such statistically significant data on their webpages or their programme brochures.

As far as your personal career prospects are concerned, one would need more background information (if you prefer so via Personal Message) to make a more or less educated guess.

In order to avoid any misunderstandings some small, but probably important clarifications:
1. When I speak of "most of my classmates", I do not mean all of my classmates and when speaking of "classmates" I truly mean classmates, I am not dressing up my own personal experience as the experience of "most of my classmates".
2. My LLM year in the UK was a splendid experience and its purpose was entirely fulfilled.
