UCL 2017/18


Hi there everyone,

seeing there's no thread on LLM students who'll definitely be attending UCL as of September I thought I'd open one up so as to get to know one another and maybe exchange some apartment hunting ideas.

I'll make the start - I studied law in Munich and graduated only a few days ago. The only module I'm sure I'll be doing at UCL is Energy Law, the rest is still up for debate. In terms of apartments I've heard some good things about Southwark, but a quick scan has revealed nothing too appealing. And I've heard nothing good about student accommodation... Maybe somebody has actually lived there and can give a few details?

Hey, I will also be attending UCL this September on the LLM course. My plan is to specialise in International Banking and Finance Law so if anyone else is thinking likewise then it would be great to bounce ideas off one another! My module choices are all likely to be under their module list for the specialism as I am not as passionate about the other modules myself.

I studied an undergraduate degree in Law at LSE, so I feel like I know London fairly well. I lived in Southwark for two years and in my experience I would say it is a nice place to live, particularly near the tube station, and the closer you are to the river the better it generally gets (but, as expected, not the rent). I've tended to live in private student halls during my time at university and plan to do so this year. I've never really had a problem with them, but thorough research beforehand is recommended!

Hi, I'm also going to specialise in International Banking and Finance Law. My module choice at the moment is: Legal Aspects of International Finance, Trusts, Corporate Finance and M&A. I'm trying to figure out how to balance the workload with some coursework, but you can't take Secured Transactions with International Finance due to the timetable, so it's tricky. I'd be interested to hear anyone's thoughts.

Hi,

I am attending UCL this September and am specialising in International Commercial Law. I am thinking of opting for International Arbitration, Legal Aspects of International Finance, Corporate finance, and am a bit confused on whether to opt for Company Law or M&A. I would happy to hear the thoughts of anyone who has a bit more insight :)

Hi, I can't speak for M&A (hence why I will be taking it this year), but I studied company law at undergraduate level, and when I looked at the syllabus for this module a number of the same topics were covered. I would recommend company law if you prefer a statute-heavy subject (you work pretty much exclusively with the Company Act 2006) but with enough cases to keep you interested. I personally enjoyed studying piercing the corporate veil and directors duties, as the cases involved can be engaging, but I would recommend you have a high tolerance for dry subjects if you want to do the module!

Hello guys ! I am getting into UCL's general LLM next September. I am planning to take the following modules :
- Law, Economics and Society
- Legal aspects of International Finance
- EU Contract Law
- Corporate Governance in the US and UK
- Law and Ethics
- International Law of Foreign Investment but I am thinking about changing it with a course from a different faculty of UCL
How can we find the different non legal courses available at UCL ? :)
Is there a Facebook group for our 2017/2018 ? I found one but it looks like quite old !
