Which one?

City - LLM in International Commercial Law
Kingston - LLM in Corporate and Financial Law
Brunel - General LLM
Westminster - LLM in Corporate and Financial Law
Greenwich - International and Commercial Law, LLM

I'm looking for a LLM in London and since my grade wasn't good enough for the top-ranked university so these are my choices.

it would be very helpful if anyone could possibly give me a short review or feedback of any of the choices above

Thanks

I would also go for City or alternatively Brunel. Stay away from Kingston. It is waste of your money and time to go there. (At least from what I have seen during a visit there) Have you had the chance to visit any of the Universities yet? Also you are aware that except for Westminster, all Universities are not really in or near the centre of London? If you don't mind being further away from London why not apply to better reputed Universities like Kent, Southampton, or even Bristol? They might offer a better experience and you can still go to London on weekends;)

I didn't have a chance to visit any of the University yet. I'm obviously an international student and i really want to be in London. I know that other than Westminster, all of them are not in the centre of london but i'm trying to be as close as possible.

So... if i'm focusing in London it would be Brunel and City right? What are the pros and cons for these two? I heard a lot of bad things about City from this forum. Will Brunel be a better choice? or its still City?

Brunel is off the beaten track. It's a lengthy schlep out to the campus.

On the plus side, they have great athletics facilities at Brunel. Three of their graduates won Olympic golds in track and field at Sydney 2000.

City would be the one for you if you want to be in Central London (It is near Isllington/ Angel tube station). As for quality and reputation, City is also the best among your choices. Bear in mind that Kingston, Westminster, Greenwich, used to be polytechnics, which you may want to avoid.

Ok, by virtue of the Further and Higher Education Act 1992, polytechnic became universities which meant they could award their own degrees.

But according to City's website: "The name, "The City University", was officially adopted in 1966 to reflect the institution's close links with the City of London, although the University continues to use the name "City University London". ...City University London was also created by royal charter in 1966, following recommendations in the Robbins Report of 1963..."

There is actually a list of former polytechnics at Wikipedia but I would not totally rely on it as its not official. Anyways, I dont see how CIty was a polytechnic, but please correct me if I am wrong though.

I wouldn't go to any of the above. They are simply not worth the money (especially if you're forking out international fees).
