Bare in mind I don't have much of a desire to specialise in African or South East Asian Law haha!
In my head Queen Mary is better... but I came across a thread on here where people seemed to be saying SOAS is better? Queen Mary, for 2011, ranks (over an estimated average in my head) at around number 6 (I know, pinch of salt, BLAH) and SOAS is probably around number 20 somewhere... only being brought higher by the Guardian's number 7 ranking?
What do you think?
Queen Mary or SOAS for LLB Law? Watch

I think QMUL.
I also dont like the name "SOAS" lol - although that is no reason to discount it.

I picked SOAS - got an offer today, but doubt that I'll take it. And I'm not planning on specialising in any African Law, just like the OP, but honestly, I don't think it matters. I liked the course because it was a bit different, and you got an LLB at the end of it, which is no different from the QMUL qualification. After all, every lawyer I've met had always said that they only use 1% of their degree :P, so I don't think that the African/Asian specialisation will matter.
I also loved the location of SOAS, and the fact that it's quite a quaint, but quirky place.
Good luck picking!
