You usually have as much time as you need. Just be honest with the University and tell them you're waiting to make a decision and why. I've done the LLM there and know the staff; I also needed a lot of time to accept and then needed to defer for a year. They were really great about it.

If you want to do academia only, I would suggest that it won't matter were your LLM is from as much a where your PhD is from. I would therefore go to the LLM programme where you think you can learn the most from faculty who will invest in you and be able to write a strong letter of recommendation for your PhD program. Either way, both LSE and Essex are respected programs and can get you into a PhD just fine. If you don't intend to do a PhD, but want to do academia, I would suggest LSE just because the international name recognition is higher. That said, I have nothing but the good things to say about the Essex program and about the support the professors offer to students. If your plan is more flexible or if you're interested in doing a PhD, I would highly recommend Essex.
