LSE v. QMUL - Banking Law and Financial Regulation


j.a.

Hi all!

I'm planning on taking a highly focused course on Financial Law and Banking Regulation and have received offers from LSE and Queen Mary, University of London. I know QMUL has a strong program in this field, with many course options and such acknowledged professors as Rosa Lastra and George Walker. What I don't know, however, is whether QMUL's program is so good that it can beat, or at least match, that of LSE in terms of quality and reputation. What do you think?

I don't think it is. At least in London, the LSE programme is generally better regarded for financial /banking law. Joanna Benjamin is very well respected, and I think LSE probably has a closer relationship with the City firms (I stand to be corrected on this one).

LSE's got a better reputation than QML and I'd definitely choose LSE, no doubt. In my opinion, in the end it all comes down to reputation of the law school.

LSE hands down. J. Benjamin is outstanding,
On a side note, I thing that KCL has the edge when it comes to International Finance (not from a regulation perspective but from a transactional one - R. Tennekon is simply brilliant)
