LLM Queen mary - Bristol - Edinburgh - Glasgow


becomply

Hi,

I am a Belgium student who is going to his final year of law school. During my four years of studying law I developed a specific interest in corporate law and commercial law. I would like to do an LLM in the UK to specialise in these areas of law.

I had 66% for my bachelor degree (I think the equivalent is a 2:2). In the first year of my master I had 70% (2:1). Normally I would even go higher in my second master year. I also did 2 internships (one international law firm and one Belgium lawfirm).

If I file my application in February (then I will have my grades of the first semester of my second master year), will I have a bigger chance to get accepted by these top schools? Or is the focus primarily on the LLB?

Your answer will be appreciated!

My main question is: is the LLB the most important part for the application or the master?

Have a good day

You have an opportunity at all of them but the biggest advantage is to apply very early and it is likely you will get a place. My advice just apply NOW and then if you get in you can pick which one.

Although from all of them I would go for Bristol!

Thank you for your answer Wheretogo_! If I apply in February do you think it's already late?

@becomply I sent you a private message but I'm not sure it went through... did you receive it?

Why February and not now? Like I said, the earlier the better!

I just got an offer from QMUL. My grades were not that good, 60%, but had a good CV.. so it's definitely possible to get accepted with lower grades also.

Hey, thanks this is very encouraging! Can I ask you at which Uni you had 60%? Because a 60% is very different from one country to another.

@Wheretogo_ Because I still have to pass my TOEFL test :) But I'll try to do it this month. Is it possible to apply now and submit my TOEFL test later?

I am also debating among these universities. But, I'm looking for a qualifying degree, and the LLMs do not work for that.

Edinburgh LLB Graduate Entry or Bristol MA in Law? Why so?

Thanks in advance!

Edin has probably some focus on Scots law.

Both are excellent universities but I would pick Bristol. It's an excellent university with a terrific law department. The MA is a qualifying law degree and a very respectable degree amongst the legal sphere. It clearly reflects the good research at Bristol
