But the world rankings are not with respect to law and as I mentioned Kings and UCL are in the world rankings way better placed than manchester....and since a QMUL student is able to participate in classes of the two unis, I'd not say it is that clear!

Manchester is 26th in the world.

Even though the University is top 20 in the UK for law it is still heavily targeted by London firms.

Kings and UCL are a different story though. As for QMUL, it has a good rep but it is not one of the corporate hitters. This is a fact. On the other hand, Manchester is.

But only if you want to stay in the UK.

Exactly!!!

Tbh I went to Houston once and one of the lawyers in a compliance firm actually knew the University of Manchester so I was quite surprised.

But yes, Kings UCL all up there. QM also good but it does not float my boat.

Asam, make your final choise upon valuing taught module options and teaching staff relative. Rankings don't matter too much if you have to attend a specific law course taught by a leading expert in that field. So, by the end, you will be alble to leave with an advanced and deep understanding of the key and current trends and issues in your chosen field.

Anyway, either that Universities are very well recognized in Europe and in several law fields have a strong reputation around the world too.

Guys sorry to break the bubble of all those vouching for how good Manchester Uni is (also known as Uniof ) but it is nothing as all of you seem to know of it above .
I got a chev scholarship and made the mistake of choosing Manchester Uni over the london ones being expensive and also because i had some relatives there and due to the costs of living which till date i regret . It is indeed embarrasing but i have to admit that i am appalled at the way LLM is conducted in this uni and for me it broke all my expectations at what education in the UK would be like . I have a million reasons not to recommend University of Manchester for LLM ( and only a few to do ) . Althought the rankings of the university have gone down in the past few years ( the rankings only represent the undergrad law school ranking btw) it is far better than what it should actually be . Most of the professors are either retired barristers out of touch with the current happenings in the legal sphere of Phd students who are usually doing it to get grants and are usually not much older (knowledgeable) than you are being stumped at usual interventions . Most of the studies are expected to take place before or after coming to class and the only thing done by professors is enlighten on topics given out of pre printed module sheets . The exams again are not fair as each question carries 33 marks and you are expected to understand and attempt all your semesters learnings at the risky attempt of 3 out of 4 questions which in my view can never justify a students ability . There have been instances where 98% students in a particular class have failed . Classes are usually 2-3 hours a day a maximum of 3 times a week leaving a lot of time for you to wonder . As far as Queen Mary is concerned i have not personally experienced it but i dont think much of it either . But if given a choice you rather choose it because of it being a UOL affiliated university . If you have any further questions please email me or message me here and i shall be very glad to help you out . Cheers.
