LSE, UCL or KCL LLM?

I believe in Law ranking and all indicate LSE ranks higher than UCL and KCL so it's not possible that every law ranking in both world ranking and UK one would illustrate the same unreliable result. Therefore, personally, LSE is the best for both higher reputation and capacity.

Hi,

I've just been conditionally offered an LLM in UCL. I want to specialise in Commercial law and arbitration. I have also applied for LSE and am waiting to hear back, although my application was pretty late so I'm not to sure I'll get that one.

Does anyone know what UCL's reputation for commercial law and dispute resolution is like? If I was offered LSE, is it known to have stronger departments in these areas?

Any of the people commenting last year currently studying in these colleges now any opinions?

Why do I tend to choose LSE (I have an offer from UCL and QMUL as well, and I have not applied to King's). Probably somebody finds my reasons ridiculous, but that is it.

1. It is really not the point that legal universities rankings are slightly higher for LSE. The difference is not so big, and can not be seen from the distance of thousands kilometres where I have my practice. I believe that personal performance is much more important.

My clients are not law students to be interested in these rankings! They are business leaders, most of them have economic background. And they are confident that LSE is one of the best places to study.

2. Comfort of life. I am not a school-boy to live in a dormitory or a 6-square meters cubicula. And I do not want to spend an hour a day in a shabby tube. Studying in a university is a stress itself. I would like to avoid stresses in my free time.

LSE seems to be the only university in London to offer its students centrally located flats and studios. I speak about their Grosvenor House and Lillian Knowles - seems to be comfortable and not so expensive.
People say that libraries and other premises are also more comfortable in LSE (though UCL has better architecture).

3. LSE's admissions criteria are a little bit higher, even in English.
