If you check the rankings you will see that Nottingham seems to be ahead of the others. According to several mails in this site Warwick is a very modern and dynamic University and quite more expensive than the others (4600p-Warwick, 3500p-Bristol, 3100p-Nottingham).
All of them have a very good reputation, as far as law is concerned, so maybe you should also consider some other aspects (courses etc).
1) The courses in Bristol for example seem to be more trade-based (carriage of goods, international trade etc), while in Warwick more economic. Nottingham has a decent variety and combines it all. What exactly would you like to learn about? Trade? Economic aspects?
2) The assessment of the courses in Bristol is mainly by written examinations, while in the others a combination of examination and essays.
3) Bristol is a much more vivid city (and bigger) than the others, so if you also care about where you would like to live (countryside or city), you should consider that. Some friends who had done their postgraduate studies in Bristol had a great time there.
So, you should make your priorities, what is that you want most and then choose one of the above-mentioned universities. They all are, pretty much, at the same level.
Good luck!

thank you for your detailed and informative reply. the decision now leans heavily in favour of Bristol, as its LLM involving issues relating to both domestic and international commercial law would be more beneficial to my practice (confined more or less to domestic issues) as opposed to the warwick LLM.

However today i have received an offer from QMC as well. but ive heard, rightly or wrongly, that QMC is in east london which is not a very nice place to live in... and commuting to and fro between central london and east london is expensive, which makes bristol all the more attractive.
Are bristol and QMC on the same plane as well ?

is this (placing warwick above bristol/nottingham) based solely on reputation/rankings/it (warwick) being more famous or does it include the exposure, social life, environment, experience that one wishes to acquire upon coming to uk ??

on the same lines dont u ppl think that living in bristol or even warwick/nottingham would be a much better experience than living in east london ?

Bristol is the most vivid place. Both Bristol and Warwick are not far from London and that will give you the chance to visit it many times. East London isnt that famous for its good neighbourhood and QM 's accomodation must be a bit far.
I think that you will taste the student life much more in other cities than London, but of course the opportunities in the city-capital are bigger.
Good luck!

Hi Akhtar,

Warwick is generally regarded to be quite dynamic and modern. Bristol is a 'redbrick' uni and has a history of tradition and excellence. Nottingham is somewhat of a compromise between Warwick's modernism and Bristol's traditional approach.

About non-academic factors which influence such rankings and perceptions, employer and industry perception is a major factor which consistently ensures that Warwick is rated very highly. However, about your queries regarding exposure, social life etc, do bear in mind that Warwick is a campus-based uni. Thus while the social scene is quite amazing do note that you will not have the opportunity of actually living in a proper city such as London or Bristol. About living in East London, personally I do not think that it is a major issue. If you want to study at QMUL, you can pretty much stay anywhere in London and travel accordingly. The exposure of studying and living in London should prove to be an attractive proposition.

Hope this helps. Good luck with your decision.

hey thessaloniki,

you seem to know a lot on University of Bristol and whereabouts, maybe you can tell me if it is a good place for an LLM in commercial and contract law?

Anyone else who has something to say on this, most welcome.

Also, coming from India, i would also like to work there after my LLM. i know getting a job in London is very tough, is it the same for Bristol as well?

Do tell me more,
Mercury

Very difficult decision! East London is not a very nice place but U of L LLM programme offers a variety of subjects and you can also enrol for subjects at UCL or KCL as well! Bristol is a vivid city, yes i agree. Nottingham and Warwick are campus-based univs....you may like it or you may hate it!
