U of London: online LLB or LLM


A-Rex

Question: Assuming I am indifferent between the LLM and graduate entry-LLB - which would you say is the easier program?

Background: I am a 'mature' student, well into my career. I have a Bachelors degree and an MBA. I am considering the UofL LLM or LLB purely for the 'badge value'. I have no intention of practicing law. Grades do not matter to me.. I am happy with a simple pass. I am looking for the easiest and fastest degree with the minimal amount of work.

You have to consider what learning style you prefer. See how each of them is examined. An LLM in theory, is the more rigorous programme. However, if the LLM is in-person and the LLB is online, it might make a difference depending on how you cope with online learning.

With that being said, I am very confused about your decision. University of London would not provide the ‘badge value’ you are after. Employers would not care about those stuff and you have to reevaluate whether it is worth the fees and opportunity cost. It’s up to you though, but u might be overestimating the usefulness.
