LSE or Warwick??


nn
Hello everyone.

I have been offered a seat at LSE for Intl Business laws and at Warwick for Intl Corp Gov and financial Reg.

Any suggestions on which one would be a better choice considering theres just a ranks difference between the two?

Thank u.

LSE! especially because you're from India... it has a better reputation (in India) than most Universities in the world. Also, being in London gives you a good advantage... closer to law firms... exposure is quite incomparable.

Excuse me, but what is so ridiculous about Warwick? :S I've been accepted there and I have to pay quite the fee, my research has told me it is always in top 10, if not top 5 of UK Unis, why does everyone here say it is a joke? I'm not from the UK and rather thought it had a good reputation there, am I sorely mistaken?
Thank you so much.

Warwick is a good school but - at least on reputation - LSE's law school is supposed to be one of the best in the world. Thus, the gap in academic standard between Warwick and LSE is often percieved to be enormous, hence the comments on this board.

I think Warwick is a very good university, with a good law school, but LSE's reputation in law is really something else, especially outside the UK. I'm not saying it doesn't have an excelent reputation in the UK, all I'm saying is that, outside the UK, people tend to look at it as one of the best schools in the world. As a matter of fact, I know people from my country that turned down Oxbridge to go to LSE (a little too much for me, but what can I do?). To wrap it up, it's not that Warwick isn't good, but given LSE's reputation, there really shouldn't be a doubt when coming across an unconditional offer from them. I have to say one thing though... I really wouldn't like to live in London... so, in that particular aspect, my vote is for Warwick... but I guess I'm alone in the "I hate big cities" community...

Kerfuffle
It's important not to overblow LSE's reputation, while it's highly regarded internationally for economics and international relations, it does not have the same international name for law - really only Oxbridge is widely known for law outside the UK. There is always the possibility that UCL or KCL may overtake LSE in law rankings long enough for their international name to overtake LSE's - particularly if they embark on international branding (if I recall correctly, one or both uni's are ranked higher than LSE with the Guardian, and this includes taking account of the new RAE). Becareful of just relying on name and rank.

LSE and Warwick are both great uni's. Personally, I'd choose LSE because I think all the UoL colleges offer a better quality LLM experience than anywhere else in the UK. But if you are after a campus experience, then Warwick is one of the best choices. Also bear in mind that Warwick is following LSE's lead, and branding itself internationally (eg. it attracts high profile speakers, 'Americanising' its academic titles, establishing high profile forums eg. the Warwick Commission) etc. so expect it to have a higher profile in the future. Warwick is particularly recognised for international economic law.

I agree with Kerfuffle...let's not overblow LSE value when it comes to Law, but the value of an LLM for LSE is better than Warwick

I totally agree with you guys, I think LSE's reputation is overblown. I was talking about just what the recruiters from my country think... they see LSE as the best thing outside the US. I don't actually agree with them, but that's what they think...

Thats why I was also a lil confused. Coz I know both are good. But in the end, considering I'm from India, I guess LSE will be more recognised in comparison to Warwick rite? I guess the weights tilt in favour of LSE.

Hi Guys,

What do you think about rankings of these 2 in next 15 years? Warwick seems getting better every year.

If you want to do anything related to banking and financial law or taxation law or Human Rights Law, LSE is the best place in the UK. Anything else, Oxbridge, LSE, UCL, Kings and Warwick, in that order.
