Hi LLMguider,
I am sorry but once again i have to disagree, putting the mlf or the mcl above the bcl is NOT accurate. the BCL is considered as the most prestigious and challengingpost graduate legal course in the world, together with the harvard llm. The mlf or even the cambridge llm don't even come close to the bcl

Hi again, as I mentioned above, it is only my very humble opinion and I can explain it

I put the MLF above the BCL because among ALL (!) postgraduate courses at Oxford the MLF attracts the highest number of applicants per place (source: Financial Times), let alone that MLF students share almost all lectures and seminars with BCL students (two law electives), so effectively it is half-BCL

The programme had 30 places (in previous years) and up to 45 (max) students will join the programme this year (BCL+Mjur=150 students)

The same logic you can apply to the MCL, as only 25-30 places are available, while the Cam LLM accepts over 150
