dthdzung

Yes, 1 in US and the other in UK.
Hi all!
I got accepted by GWU and UCL for International (business/commercial) law LLM program this coming 2009-2010 academic year.
I have been granted a half Thomas Buergenthal Scholarship from GWU, none from UCL.
And I plan to come back to my homeland after graduation.

I'm so confused right now 'bout choosing which school to go for. so please, help me! any thought, anybody?

Thanks a whole lots!

In terms of international business law GWU is a place to be .DC and its environment would have a major impact on your studies plus if you are keen on having some practical experiences along your studies you will definitely have a huge chance with the bunch of international companies that situated in this city ,while UClA benefits from the weather and sweet campus .Additionally I heard that UCLA has been hugely stood up lately (in the realm of commercial law) and conducted cutting age researches in this area.
at the end its all depends on your personal preferences that whether you like to save a considerable amounts of money or having exotic fun during llm.

UCLA != UCL
S/he's been admitted to University College London. I know nothing about UK LL.Ms and GWU is most famous for its IP program. I'd be tempted to say UCL because it's more highly regarded in the UK than GWU in the US. Sorry can't help more.

Ops my bad, UCL has nothing to do with UCLA, I think I need a new pair of glasses.
Despite the fact that UCL is considerably high ranked in UK and everything but it does not seem to be a strong asset in comparison with GWU .it has been ongoing argument that where UK law schools stand versus UC law schools therefor in this forum i would not start another controversy , since I am totally ignorant about the UK law school.
There is no question that GWU is mainly famous for its IP but friend of mine who is currently studying llm in this school says that GWU has gained lots of credits in international business law .

I'd pick Cambridge and Oxford over any US law school bar Yale Stanford and Harvard. And a top 5 UK law school over any non top 14 US law school. Again that's only a personal preference.

It all depends on personal preference, goals, country of residence, futur employment, ...

For me personally, I could go to LSE or King's College, but didn't doubt that UVA will get me a much more profound experience.
Because I live in Europe and want to work in an international law firm, US law, practical education, small group of very international students ( UK: LOTS of Europeans), ... are all especially valuable to me.

For other people though, a UK education can bring a lot more :)
