UU's law school has only been in existence for a few years, and the university usually ranks in the 50s in UK league tables... Queen's ranks in the 30s and the law school is usually in the top-ten or just off it. So, I'd go for Queens - just look at the profiles of the staff members of the Human Rights Center there!

I am interested in an LLM program in the EU, curious about why you said Beffast is superior? Is it a big city thing, I did my JD at Fordham in NYC, so I certainly understand that, perhaps you can tell me something about the other 2 locations up in the North?

Thanks.

First of all Galway isn't in the North either politically or for that matter geographically. It is in the West. I really liked Galway. The Irish Center for Human Rights is based there. There is a great faculty and it appears to be very student focused. That said Queens probably has the better reputation. I would personally rank UU third out of the three.

First, my apologies if there was any misunderstanding, and certainly I meant no offense to anyone on any side of any issue. As long as you're not a Bush supporter, we probably agree on the important things in life!!!

I know where Galway is, actually have been there, but long ago and on holiday, which is different than living there, but I was curious about Ulster and the comment about Belfast being more interesting, my motives aren't political at all, purely educational. I have lived in other countries, like the UK, US, Mexico and Dominican Republic, so I was curious about the lifestyle at the law schools. I am also older, since I've already done undergrad and a law degree in the US and have worked since.

I like what you said, but why rank UU 3 of 3?

Mainly because you just don't hear about it. Queens has a great reputation, Galway has a great life style and UU... That's not to say that it mightn't be the best place in the world to study. Having spent a year in Cambridge I am the first to admit that reputation is not all. That said it's only a year and with that in mind you should go for the one which will give you the greatest benefit long-term.
As for student life I can only give you some insight to Galway. I was there as an undergrad and I lived with a girl who did one of the LLMs in the Human Rights Centre. Galway is an amazing place to study. The social life is great. It's a small city which means that basically you can walk wherever you want to go and it's not too far to some of the most beautiful places in Ireland. Added to that the faculty are really supportive. There is the feeling of a true open door policy and they will filter their advice so that you get the most out of your LLM in terms of publication or whatever your personal objective is.

After looking at the programmes and the staff both UU and Galway seem like good options in the area of human rights law and peace support, and post conflict/transitional studies.

I'm quite interested in both and I'd like to exchange views with graduates from LLM Programmes in Ulster and Galway.

If anyone out there, please reply.

Thanks,

Chema
