UK Law School: LSE v UCL

Postby JackDaniels^ » Sat Feb 25, 2012 8:09 pm

I've been admitted to LSE and UCL for my LL.M., but I wonder what school is the best choice with regard to chances of getting admitted into a top-tier law firm. I did a summer internship at one, but decided to go for an LL.M. first, before I start working fulltime.

This firm has pretty strong ties to LSE when it comes to international applicants, so the judgments of lawyers at this firm are not completely independent, hence why I ask here.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Didn't apply there apparently.

No one here is going to be able to give you an informed response on this, and I'd be very suspicious of anyone who claims they can. I have several friends who are lawyers in the UK, and know people who went to these schools, and I have no clue.

LSE

However, I don't have anything solid to back this up.
But, from having lived in England for 7 years, I can tell you LSE has a better reputation than UCL
(in the same way that I can tell you that Princeton Law is one of the best in the country)

what's the value of an LLM not in tax (from nyu or Gtown)? Honest question. I have a friend that brags about his from an english law school. seems pretty worthless to me. Do firms in the US value this at all?
