UCLA v. Berkeley


scllm

Hi,

After reading much debate on UCLA v. USC but finding none on UCLA v. Berkeley I have a question that i would like to ask.

Considering my area of interest is IP with core interest area being Media and Entertainment Law, is the Law and Technology Program a better bet of the Entertainment and Media Law and Policy Program?

Though I am not from the States I do intend (and wish) to work there for a few years.

Any responses would be SO helpful!

Thanks.

Hi scllm,

In my humble opinion, I think that UCLA is the better choice in your case.

You stated that you want to do "IP with core interest area being Media and Entertainment Law".

I think, as you want to work afterwards in the United States, L.A. is the better place to network in that domain.

Although Berkeley has the better overall reputation in IP Law, I think the LL.M. specialization at UCLA is much more targeted than the one at Berkeley.

Don't get me wrong, both universities are excellent, but L.A. is the place for Media and Entertainment in the United States (followed by New York and Atlanta), therefore I would prefer to be in the city where networking is more convenient and effiecient.

My 2 cents

My 2 cents, Berkeley. It's not even close.
