    I have been admitted at both UCL and LSE for an LLM. (I also got offers from Kings, Manchester, Sheffield and Durham) I seem to favour LSE for its brand name.
    People however seem to be suggesting that UCL is a preferred option by London law firms over LSE. is this true???

    No offence, but if you're doing an LLM just to increase your chances of a City TC, I reckon you could be sorely disappointed.

    Sorry, Kabir, but I agree; solicitors don't generally appreciate masters qualifications.

    Well an LLM certainly can't hurt, and I believe the MC firms and some others offer an extra £500/year to those with masters during training. If your LLM is purely a choice for financial gain, I would agree with those comments earlier, i'd advise you to reconsider (especially regarding initial expenditure as a foreighn student in London paying non-EU LSE fees)

    In general thats true - although the BCL is considered an asset by most

    Just that I thought I'd already made that point.

    Just because the two comments are compatible doesnt mean they are the same thing

    Your post just seemed to reiterate mine but in a tone that suggested you disagreed with it.
