overall- hands down queen mary

but in banking and finance though the faculty in queen mary are elite,i personally believe KCL has a better course.

But check the individual modules, if you find qm modules good then go for it. superb experience.

With respect to banking (and any other specialisation for that matter), I'd say KCL is the best choice from the universities you've mentioned. As regards the Human Rights (danivergel's question), I don't know the programme, sorry!

Queen Mary is a great college, but I guess almost anyone in London would agree that King's has a better overall reputation.

You can also check the law school rankings by The Times and The Guardian, which both place King's ahead of Queen Mary:

I beg to differ actually.. In terms of brand name KCL might score, but only so marginally, as the speed with which QM is catching up wit the Big 3(UCL,KCL, LSE) in terms of brand name is commendable to say the least. This is evidenced by its rise in the recent RAE ranking (which is a more accurate assessment than rankings by guardian and times) where QM was the biggest mover(moved 20 odd places up) and KCL has slipped.

In terms of the actual courses and teaching I have to say QM does edge KCL out in most of the courses if not all and most definitely in commercial and IP subjects. I am pursuing LLM in Qm at the moment and my views are not prejudiced as I had an offer from kcl but chose qm instead.

Would like to quote this post I read in some other thread which speaks aptly abt CCLS.

As I have already mentioned elsewhere Queen Mary is especially strong in commercial arbitration, tax, finance and IP. Further the Centre for Commercial law at QMUL is emerging as an area of excellence. I would, if you are seriously interested in the subject rather than just obtaining the qualification for career purposes, choose QMUL over UCL in the following areas: IP, tax and arbitration where QMUL is the established leader of the field.

Come on, let's be real here. You can not compare QMUL to KCL whether in terms of general reputation, specialization, modules or teachers! And the difference between the 2 is HUGE! Personaly, I would also prefer Warwick to QMUL.

I'd disagree with you there, Banker - the difference between the two is most definitely not 'huge'. QMUL is better than KCL in a number of specialities (off the top of my head...IP, dispute resolution, & tax) and is also well-regarded by city law firms. The RAE results are testament to the quality in QMUL's law faculty (which came higher than KCL in law and generally). Also, the facilities offered by QMUL are better than KCL ie. KCL has a law school is crumbling, while QMUL has new facilities at Lincoln's Fields (as does LSE). KCL undoubtedly has a well-established name and brand, but that's not to say QMUL will not catch up - over the years, KCL has slipped a little.

All-in-all, you'll get much the same level of education at KCL, QMUL or Warwick - the choice must boil down to picking the law school that is best suited to your speciality.

Ultimately, if you want general reputation go to Oxbridge or LSE (although that doesn't necessarily mean you're getting the LLM experience).

(p.s. it pains me to say all this as I went to KCL!).

KCL is the home of the British Institute of Human Rights - so has a good solid human right expertise. You may also want to look at Oxford's Mst part-time programme.

Hi Kerfuffle. I'm not sure if you're still active on LLM Guide, but I'd like to ask whether you could expound further on the human rights programme of KCL. I've received an unconditional offer at KCL and I am seriously considering focusing on public international law, human rights and envi law. Thanks.
