Can someone indicate the usual time by which responses are sent? Mid/end-March through Apri? Also are decisions given out in a rolling manner or all are sent on the same day?

following the 2021-2022 thread, decisions for the MJur’s and BCL’s were made during the 19-23 of March. Best of success mate!

I reckon MLF results were given out prior that, right?

Right, in 2020 decisions for the MLF were released from March 6th to the 11th. In 2021, they were sent out on March 11 and 12. So I guess it would be likely to hear from them in the next few days, but who knows, many schools are delayed this year.

I would say it depends on what kind of area you wish to focus on (instead of reputation - both Oxford and LSE have amazing reputation).

I would strongly advise you to make the decision based on identifying the professors at each institution from whom you'd want to learn. If you're focused on black letter, formalist law, perhaps Oxford is the way to go (although, some great names at the LSE come to mind as well in that area - Devika Hovell, Conor Gearty, Andrew Lang, Thomas Poole, to name a few - so explore their research interests and choose according to your own).

Should you, instead, be focused more on abstract areas of law, I would encourage you to choose LSE (postcolonial studies - Ayça Çubukçu; marxism, valences of labour law - Susan Marks; history of ICL, law and literature, law and movie - Gerry Simpson).
However, Linda Mulcahy - currently within the Socio-Legal department at Oxford, having previously taught at the LSE; not the Law department, be careful - is also great in a more abstract niche (visual representations/images in law or the courtroom, cultural objects and their relevance to law, v. interesting stuff). 

I have not studied at Oxford (I did my LLM at the LSE and I am currently in an Advanced Diploma at Cambridge), so I might be mistaken here. But from what I have seen on their website at the Law department's academic staff section, they have almost zero expertise in more law and humanities oriented areas (but, of course, disregard this aspect if your interests do not lie in this sphere).

I applied to the MPhil and DPhil at Oxford suggesting co-supervision from two departments for my abstract, interdisciplinary project, since there was nobody in the Law department suited for it.

That is my two cents on it. I would love to hear from current or former students there if I do not have an accurate representation of Oxford professors' expertise. Best of luck!!!


100%, the Oxford's BCL is probably no.1 Masters programme in Law



Would you guys prefer Oxford over LSE in terms of LLMs/MJur?

Would you guys prefer Oxford over LSE in terms of LLMs/MJur?


I’d say Oxford, partially because I’m at Oxford and is therefore somewhat biased. 

In all seriousness, not only is the name itself unmatched, the tutorial system truly is unique. There is a reason it’s marketed as a unique selling point.

It is a VERY intense course (you will often have to write 2-3 essays in a week on top of all your seminar/tutorial prep), but it is equally rewarding. I’d say Oxford certainly does not lack academic expertise in most areas, but even if you can’t find someone, do keep in mind that the Mjur is a taught degree. It’s a great opportunity to diversify your interest and explore different areas before committing to a topic. If you get the chance, I’d definitely encourage you to pick Oxford.

Hi there, I see some diligent predictions on when we may expect to receive responses to our applications above. However, someone also mentioned there aare delays at many universities this year, and the same may be for Oxford. Therefore, I was wondering if anyone here knows of other Oxford studies which generally send out their rejections or offers before this time of year that has been on time and thus could serve as an indicator whether or not they will be delayed this year?

I'd try not to rely on that because different faculties have different admission requirements/processes/methods of communication etc., and therefore I'd not use other faculties as a proxy.

@Miki3999 Hi, I wanted to know how much weightage does the essay get for BCL, besides the grades scored in the undergrad program. Thank you.

In my view, (and I'm not part of the admissions team) the essay is crucial, because it's the only way in which you can showcase what you can really write. This makes the process a bit more fair as well (compared to Cambridge for example, where basically the only criterion is your grades).



I'd say: Grades > Essay > References > PS > CV

I applied to both the MLF and the MJur and the button has not disappeared for either of them. Has yours disappeared?
