Hi,

I've just discovered this site and looked through the threads to find one about law, but I've had no luck so far! I have an offer from LSE for Law and I'm just wondering how well this degree is regarded nationally as well as internationally? Obviously LSE is a top uni, but is it known for its Economics/ A&F/ G&E degrees or is a law degree from LSE just as prestigious? What sort of legal firms do lawyers go on to work for?

I'm sorry if this question seems vacuous but there don't seem to be any lawyers here currently studying at LSE so I haven't been able to find much information relating to law degrees.

Your help would be appreciated

I'd say a Law degree from LSE is extremely well respected. Alongside LLBs awarded by places like UCL.. probably just below Oxbridge.

Congratulations on the offer.

Welcome
There are actually a few lawyers on the LSE thread, they've even started a topic about themselves here lol (http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=213735).
An LSE Law degree is awesome. It's as well known for its LLB as it is for Econs/A&F/G&E/Management degrees.

yea im still around, course LSE law is prestigous, obviously debatable in terms of league tables or whatever but it's generally regarded as 3rd/4th in the UK.

I'd imagine the majority go on to work for city law firms, the Times Good University Guide showed that Clifford Chance and Linklaters were among the top 10 employers that hire students from LSE.

If city firms aren't your cup of tea there are so many other sectors you could go into. A law degree from LSE would put you in a very comfortable position in terms of employment prospects.
