What to choose?

Hi everyone,
I'm struggling to choose between Edinburgh Uni, LLM in Corporate Law and Nottingham Uni, LLM in International Commercial Law. It appears to me that the Law Dept in Nottingham Uni is quite strong, speaking about commercial law. What about Edinburgh in that respect?
Anyone going at Nottingham University for LLM in International Commercial Law this fall?

I am heading to Nottingham this year! Top 10 and very good law school. Excellent LLM programme and one of the best schools in the UK. Edin is also good especially internationally and also a good LLM programme.

edinburgh law school is miles ahead of nottingham especially on postgraduate level. it is more beautiful and you may have more things to do there. Edinburgh university has also a better worldwide reputation and prestige and it is only comparable to oxbridge and london colleges. Nottingham is quite good as well. But not better than Ed.

The miles away claim is simply misleading. Yes good law school but based in Scotland and a focus on Scottish law as opposed to English law. Yes also beautiful - very true.

Academically superior? - the are both on the top 10 - Edn 8 Notts at 10

First of all, thanks guys to all of you!
Myias, that's what most people are saying about Edinburgh! Great city, great uni and world recognition as well.
But on the other hand, some people say that it is the particular LLM course and the tutors that should be considered in the first place while choosing a place to study in (when we are talking about relatively comparable law schools).
My point is that the International Commercial Law LLM at Notts is taught by renowned academics in the area, such as Sue Arrowsmith (procurement law), Howard Bennett (international trade and shipping law), Sarah Dromgoole (maritime law), Irit Merovach (company law and corporate insolvency), for instance. All of them are both great academics and practitioners and are involved in work with the international organisations (as stated by the Uni). And these facts are of great appeal to me since it is people who give us knowledge, not a Uni itself. Another plus is that they are giving me a schorlaship to some of my tuition fees!
On the other hand, Edinburgh's cons speak for themselves and are really attractive.
Wheretogo, what do you really think about Notts reputation in the world in terms of recognition?
I'm an international student and this matters, I'm afraid.
Guys, any other thoughts?

I thing that Notts is a good law school. it is respected worldwide but mostly in UK and i would put it in the same category as bristol, warwick and durham. But in terms of global recognition and prestige, Edinburgh's law school is ahead, incomparable and really competitive to get into some of its llms. If you don't mind paying more fees then go to Edinburgh 100%.

I know from personal experience that noone will ask you who was your professor during your studies. The only thing that a possible employer will see, is the name of your Universities and your experience. So i would clearly go with Edinburgh. Again, Nottingham is really good.

About the scotts law comment i disagree. Most of the llms at the University of Edinburgh are designed for international students and are not based on scotts law.

Finally yes edinburgh is 8th and Notts 10th according to the complete university domestic rankings (note that in student satisfactory, those rankings rate Edinburgh among the worst universities.. but even with that rated is still in top10 ahead of notts). In QS world rankings (the most accurate in my opinion), Edinburgh is in the top 20 both as a university and as a law school and Notts well below..

No it is not. The reputation certainly is not comparable to Oxbridge.

P. S.
For some nitpicking: Yes, technically one can compare the reputation to the one held by Oxbridge -> Oxbridge one's is better.

I didn't say that edinburgh is better than oxbridge because it is not. I just said that its reputation and prestige falls in the same category as oxbridge, lse, ucl, kings. Dont forget that its one of the oldest universities in the english speaking world

Hello Myias,
no - the prestige does not fall in the same category as Oxbridge. It simply does not. Oxbridge is in a different category.

The same goes for "seniority" - there is a huge gap between Oxbridge and Edinburgh. And what does the founding date signify, anyway - that Edinburgh has more reputation/prestige than Harvard or Stanford because it is older/ much older?

I think you dont really know how good the law school of edinburgh is. I cannot explain it in other words.

Again, im talking about REPUTATION. And as far as i know EVERY employer knows that Edinburgh university is among the best. And thats way i said that it is in the same reputation category with oxbridge, lse etc. because every employer knows these universities and how good they are. Thats what reputation means. I dont compare them, i just put them in the same category of recognition. If someone knows oxbridge, harvard etc he surely knows Edinburgh too.

If i would classify them they way you do i will surelly put oxbridge and harvard ahead of edinburgh. Stanford no because it relies on its marketing and not on its teaching

P.s as for the date, generally speaking, older universities have more reputation in teaching traditional courses such as law , medicine etc. and they build their reputation throught years of teaching and their research output.

Hi, rankings cannot be seen as the only one marker. For example, one of the most reliable and respected rankings, QS World Universirty overall ranking, puts LSE only to 35th place wheras Edinburgh is 21th. Furthermore, another the most recognisble in terms of comparing research, hence scientific, power ARWU ranking (mostly known as Shanghair ranking) puts LSE only to 101-150 position, even without a definte place. KCL is only the 55th, while Edinburgh is 47th. And Oxford is also well below its typical second place, it's on the 10th. Considering these, it seems your opponet has a point when trying to say that rankings is not the only thing to take into account and that reputation is simply not the same as the place in a ranking.

This is exactly what im trying to say. I totally agree with you and thats why i consider overall reputation more valuable than domestic rankings.

Well, let's sum it up:
1. The ratings may be innaccurate.
2. However, according to the ratings quoted so far (including the "scientific" ARWU rating) Oxbridge is in a different category from Edinburgh and it is always a better one (Cambridge is 5th by the way; http://www.shanghairanking.com).
3. So far, no empirical evidence whatsoever has been produced for the ominous "overall reputation comparable to Oxbridge" allegedly held by Edinburgh.
4. However, it appears that - in general and based on the UCAS score - it is significantly "easier" to get into Edinburgh than into Oxbridge. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/education/2016/03/14/the-10-hardest-universities-to-get-into/
4. During the discussion the "seniority argument" was mentioned in order to place Edinburgh in the same category as Oxbridge -> however, a difference of 300-400 years would be both insignificant (1583 - 300/400years -> Oxbridge) and very significant (1583 + 300/400 years -> "new universities"). This might be the case, however it is far from self-evident.


The discussion is certainly very interesting, but in the end the "entry level requirements market" has put an academic price on the entry to Oxbridge and the entry to Edinburgh.

Either there is a huge market failure at work or Oxbridge is indeed in a different category - what is more likely?

I am not saying that Edinburgh is not an excellent university. However, given that some people do actually take the posts on this forum into account when selecting their LLM programs (they probably should not ;-)), I think that claims such as "X is way better than Y/ Z is comparable to A/ You will get a horrible experience at B and so on" should be backed up by more than hearsay/ anecdotal evidence.

(This is by no means restricted to this thread and I assume that all/ most of such postings are sincere).

There was no argument until you came up. I was just advising the guy on his question "edinburgh or nottingham" because this is the main reason of the existence of this group. You on the other hand, did not provide any answer to his original question but you prefered to start arguing. And as you can see in my comments i said again and again that oxbridge unis are better than Edinburgh but all 3 are known from the employers to be among the best (reputation). I dont understand why you try to convice me that oxford or cambridge are better than edinburgh. I already know that they are!!!
