UCL???

I have a conditional offer to UCL for 2009. I want to specialise in environmental law and have heard it is good for this area. Just wondering what other people have heard....UCL is not as widely know as Oxbridge and how does it compare particularly for Env law?

UCL has Philippe Sands. He is one of the biggest names - if not the name - in international environmental law in the Commonwealth. In this particular field, his reputation is much bigger than any professor you can find in oxbridge .

Even if he's not teaching - I'm not sure since I haven't checked the modules this year - why not try to get him as your thesis supervisor? I think it'll be awfully impressive to put in your CV then you did you thesis under Sands.

Nope, UCL just wasn't right for me personally. It's a very good school though.

UCL has the best environmental law programme in Europe, I have been told. MacRory, Lee, Redgwell, and others are all world class.
