manchester has a good reputation in U.K. besides the subject sounds prestigious. As for the background knowledge, it does not seem like that you require finance background since it consists of particularly reguation courses instead of financial structure and transaction. That is also the reason why i prefered university of westminster; although i had offer from manchester int. fin.law

i have started studying in this september. I am happy to pursue such program. But, what is important is that what you would like to study, i.e. the specific subject in finance law. Beacuse, that is a deep field. How deep you want to study? That is the matter.

I strongly recommand you to check the modules and their contents, decide what you need to acquire in finance law and then make your decision.

university of manchester has a good reputation around in fact,in top twenty law schools in the newspaper rankings such as times, guardian and independent. So, in terms of reputation, better than westminster. Westminster Law is not that much old, but a promising law school.

indeed financial law is a very specific topic. i'm doing my phd in manchester in that field and there're some very good lecturers here in the field of corporate law and financial law.
as far as reputation is concerned, when i joined the school of law for my LLM in 2005 it had been consistently in the top 5 law schools; in the last three years manchester has fallen outside the top 10 as sombody pointed out, and the reason is quite straightforward: they have been investing a lot in fringe areas (medical law and stuff like bioethics...no comment) and obviously this has affected the overall ranking in a bad way...

hey .. i am interested in doing my LLM in Coporate Governance .. i applied in manchester, UCL and kings.. i got acceptance from manchester.. i still havent received a reply from kings or ucl and i probably will not get acceptance from there cuz my score is low.. so in that case is manchester a good university or not for LLM? or whether an LLM of Uk is better or a LLM in USA ??

Corporate governance in manchester is not a bad choice at all.
If you get accepted in UCL or Kings i'd definitely go there even though the expences involved with london have to be taken in consideration.
LLM degrees in the US are slightly different, so don't rellay know how they approach CG studies in those courses.

well yes 16th is not great... there's a previous post i wrote in this tread about why manchester has dropped. however the university as a whole is going up and there're still lots of good professors. it just seems that the focus is somewhere else.
if u need more specific info just pm me.
cheers

I think Manchester is gone mad sending offers to everyone...!!!
Every person whom I know who has applied to Manchester University for an LLM has been given a Conditional offer (in most cases) or Unconditional offer....! And atleast from my batch 34 students have applied...! the their conditions are also very simple 55% in the average LLB results...!

I mean this is ridiculous....how many students are the planning to admit....its gonna be an over-crowded college...!!

I don't think i would ever prefer a class with more than 100 students in the class...!! There is no personal attention....no scope of exploiting the Professors knowledge and the adequate use of the University Facilities...!!

Also, my job prospects reduce because more LLM students admitted to Manchester means more people applying for Job in Manchester city...!!

And this is not only in case of LLM applicants but I also know so many students intending to Masters in Finance and other courses who are given conditional offers....!!

This not how Manchester University usually admits students..! I think the University is going to Ruins..!
I would prefer University of Birmingham, University of Nottingham, Nottingham Trent University or City University London instead of settling for a college which sends offers to every tom-dick and harry.

I think Manchester is only interested in minting Money in this Crisis Situation.....i do not see any guarantee of qualitiy education or services from the University by admitting so many students.

I think in the next years Times, Guardian and Complete University Rankings...the ranking of Manchester University will further fall down and down...!!!

Its a great City for football lovers....but not for Knowledge seekers...!

Wow, that s crazy, anyway I hope to get admission also. However I have got 2 questions for the audience:
1-Manchester or Nottingham Trent University?
2-how long does it take to hear from Manchester?
Thank you very much indeed.
