Ranking of LLM commercial law


I ranked LLMs commercial law as below from the view of education quality and prestige, through collecting information on this website and so on.
Is my understanding almost correct?
Please let me know your opinions on this ranking.
(I would like to know top 10 UK LLMs in commercial law.)

1. Oxbridge
2. LSE
3. KCL
4. UCL
5. QML
6. Edinburgh
7. Bristol
8. Nottingham

Thank you for your cooperation!

Although i like the syllabus of the KCL more than UCL financial law, how come KCL ranks higher than UCL?

glau912, thank you for your comment.
I read some comments that KCL is strong in commercial law
at this website, but I have never seen such comments for UCL. That is the reason.

haha.
If UCL gave me an offer, I would definitely go to UCL and give up my KCL offer. For international studies, brand name is everything.

I think that ranking is completely wrong.

You rank two top law schools with excellent LLM programmes in the bottom two therefore it is wrong.

I cannot say anything for Edin or QM but I do think they have good LLM courses but you should not try to use that "ranking" as a decisive factor in applying/enrolling in a course.

Of course if you want international prestige then go for LSE or Kings.

Thank you for your comments. I agree with your way of thinking, though I made this thread.
I think that the ranking actually varies accoding to what each person wants through LLM experience.
Some people may strongly desire prestige (in this case,
it is very easy to decide the university), and other people
may place high priority on the module contents, yet other
people might choose the LLM based on its location, etc...
As for me, prestige is not so important but I cannot ignore each university's international prestige.

If you rank only from the view of international prestige
(not from the view of quality), how will the ranking be?

How do you compare the international prestige of KCL with UCL ?
I think UCL is much higher than KCL, right?
In my place, people have difficulty in distinguishing Imperial and Kings because of translation from English to Chinese.

So probably it stays the same for International Commercial/Business Law?

Every law school in your list is prestigious.

I very much doubt that your chances will be hindered if you attend lets say Bristol or Nottingham instead of Kings or Edind.

Oxbridge are in a league of their own.

As Imperial doesn't have a law school, it's not likely to cause too many lost-in-translation problems with an LLM from King's or elsewhere.

hey
although i agree with the rankings, the only point i am not sure about is that UCL definitely ranks above KCL.especially in commercial law. after looking at the faculties of each school, one can easily make this out.

also seeing other rankings such as guardian and times, the reputation of UCL is better.

Rankings are ridiculous, and you should choose universities based on the professors' own teaching/research. However, if you do take note of such things, the European Business Law-PALLAS consortium is ranked in the top ten in the world, and top six in EUROPE, not just the UK: http://www.essex.ac.uk/law/llm-pallas/

What kind of ranking is that? Some French student magazine no one ever heard of?

Please provide a link to the ranking instead of posting unsubstantiated claims!

For those genuinely interested and with open minds, you might like to view this discussion: http://www.llm-guide.com/board/1930
Note that PALLAS is for those looking for a demanding intensive European business law degree, not a straightforward UK commercial law experience. This year's week-long trip to the CJEU and Brussels is in 2 weeks, for instance.

Out of interest, who/what has ranked the PALLAS programme as "among the six best LL.M. degrees in Europe and the ten best in the world"?

The official Essex web link: http://www.essex.ac.uk/law/llm-pallas/
offers no reference to that claim nor what year the ranking was established (in the other link someone mentions a French law magazine but that thread dates back to 2005).

I'd be interested to see the source as I don't believe I've ever come across an actual LLM ranking.

Sorry. I will try again...

Dear Sir,
Could you please provide a source for your claim about the ranking of Essex' LLM?

If you look at the discussion, you will see the source - a French journal. The point is that you should look at the programmes and professors, not the rankings. It is a truth often quoted that you will disagree with every ranking except that which supports your prejudices.
