Warwick vs Leeds vs Bristol


Shahriar

Hi, I'm attending my final year of LLB at University of London (Int Prgm). I'm very much eager to join for an LLM in UK. Since London Colleges (e.g. KCL, UCL, LSE) are a bit expensive for me as well as the living cost is much higher in London compared to the other cities, I would like to do an LLM from outside of London. In that case, my choices are Warwick (Int. Corporate Governance and Fin. Regulations), Leeds (Int. Corporate Law), Bristol (Int. Commercial Law) as I'm interested to go into corporate practice in future.

I would like to hear opinions from people regarding the quality of these programme as well as the career prospect from a employer's point of view.

Do UK top notch Corporate Law firms give value of these programmes ? And will it be a good strategy to do an LLM in Corporate Law from one of these Universities in order to secure a Training Contract from a very reputed Law firm ?

Thanks !

Hi Shahriar,
Infact I've got offers from Univ. of Warwick and QMUL for LLM in Corporate Gov. and  Finance Regs.  I believe you must be done with your LLM now, so awaiting your suggestion. Also, any other university that you recommend for Corporate & Finance?

Hey - for Corporate Finance, the best U.K. universities are definitely Oxbridge and LSE as the top, then UCL, and KCL as second. That said if your options are limited to the ones you set out above, I would go for QM or Bristol and then second Warwick. I wouldn’t bother with Leeds University tbf as I don’t think it is particularly well regarded in the City.
As background, I work for a US firm in London as a Finance/Corp associate and I think I know the hiring process at other firms (incl magic circle) relatively well. If you have questions let me know. Happy to chat through over the phone as well, if easier.
