BU is consider as a good university with strong Banking and Finance LL.M Program, but hardly not as good as LSE or GULC. If you have any chance of being admitted to LSE grab it without any hesitation.

I believe that in the US BU will be better for your career, but in UK/EU I think KCL/UCL will be stronger.
As I said earlier, if I were you, LSE would be my first priority.

In Belgium, LSE is considered better than KCL, but it won't open every door. US law firms want you to go to US, and whether you come from LSE or KCL makes almost no difference.

thank you both
if we forget about UK universities
what is the reputation of BU in the US (for the Banking and Finance LLM). what worries me is the ranking which is 21! is it a true reflection of BU's standing? especially that big US firms are obsessed with rankings!!

With the global economic crisis not gonna be ending in the next 2 years I suppose, what are the job prospects for an LLM in Banking and Finance from BU?? Are there good chances in a NY firm or any other reputed place??

I agree but then they will be more keen to take fresh graduates rather than the old ones...

Hi all who are going to BU Law,

I am going back home after graduation and want to sublet my room from June 2009.
My room is in a shared house of 7 rooms, furniture, located at 83 Linden Street (very convenient for public transports leading directly to BU Law). This famous house is leased every year only to BU Law students. You will not be disappointed.
For more details, please contact me at sithongc@yahoo.fr .
Thanks and have a nice day,

Hi all,

I am a prospective LLM student, currently doing my due diligence on schools. Spent the last five years as an anti-money laundering consultant (banking). Given the state of the world economy and the sudden evaporation of paper wealth, my industry is dead in the water. Regardless, my career was starting to stagnate anyway.

I've been reading over the posts here and despite the well reasoned pessimism some have taken, I do believe there is some hope for an L.L.M. future graduate. Looking at the long term, it seems inevitable that more regulation on a national/international level is inevitable, particularly given the new cases of fraud that appear in the headlines, current financial instability, and what will soon be more rigorous tax enforcement by most national governments. An L.L.M. in Banking/Corporate law may provide me with new opportunities to expand upon my current regulatory knowledge and prepare myself for the inevitable heavier hand of regulator. Either that or the financial industry's sop to the government, which usually entail hiring more staff, consultants and retention of counsel.

An overly optimistic view notwithstanding, does anyone else agree or disagree with my assessment? Thoughts, comments?
