LSE or Warwick??


CR1

LSE is a great name to have on the CV but for Law, KCL/UCL are just as good if not better in some specialization, one of them being the banking and finance .

I have an offer from QMUL (commercial law) and Warwick (Int. Corp Gover and FR). I am confused which one to take up.

Warwick has a good name and reputation, where as studying at QMUL (central London) is an advantage in terms of gaining contacts.

I want to choose a college and the course that enhances my job prospects. I already have work ex of 2.6 years (in a litigation office and a company). Need your help in understanding which college is better.

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.


While I couldn't argue in favor of over-blowing any program's reputation, the idea that only Oxbridge is widely known for law outside the U.K. is categorically untrue, and I think you would be have a difficult time finding anyone in the U.S. who has any idea how good UCL and KCL really are, if they've ever heard of them to begin with.
