What is the best option between UCL, KCL, LSE?


Villieboy

Hi,

I got an offer from the three of them for LL.M. program. I am wondering where to go. Which one is the best?

I am also waiting for decision from Oxford-M.Sc. Law and Finance, which I think is too far for me.

Thanks.

UCL=Law & Economics
LSE=Banking Law and Financial Regulation
KCL=International Financial Law

I plan to be in the academics back in my home country. Which one will be the best step to PhD? Also which brand is better in the international perspective?

Thanks a lot for your comments.

from an international perspective:
LSE in the Americas
UCL in England
KCL in central Europe and part of Asia

For financial law I would recommend KCL over LSE/UCL especially if for the transactional courses in int. finance (Ravi Tennekon's). You won't find similar courses at LSE or UCL.
For commercial banking, UCL is probably better.
LSE for law and economics obviously.

Oxford all the way if you get in (regardless of the specialization).

As an Asian student, I choose UCL LLM because of the brand name since I don't find the courses of my interest, since most of the courses are EU related.
I choose KCL International Finance LLM because of the practicality, especially its covers transaction of different financial products, US and HK laws.

That said, UCL has a higher entry threshold in any event.

UCL and LSE are a notch above KCL. i'd pick between UCL and LSE depending on which courses/professors I prefer

You guys do realize that you're responding to a thread whose last response was in 2010 right? :P

I made the same mistake earlier.

Perhaps you've already made your decision but as the question may be of general interest in this forum, I would suggest you do your LL.M. at LSE!

The law education is outstanding in the UK (see this actual well known ranking, according to which LSE is ranked first, not only higher than UCL, KCL etc. but also above Cambridge and Oxford: http://www.thecompleteuniversityguide.co.uk/league-tables/rankings?s=Law).
Apart from LSE's reputation and the high quality of the law education, taking part in the influential political discussion at LSE during the LL.M. is worth mentioning. There are so many exciting public events going on and one gets the unparalleled opportunity to build a high class network.

Hey, is it true that half of the students in LSE are filthy, filthy rich?
