    Hi there, my name is Viola and I'm going to be an exchange student ( from Bocconi uni) at king's college from september to january.
    I applied to the postgraduate LLM, therefore i am going to stay law.

    my question is : is there anyone who took exams, in this course, who can tell me which are the most difficult, which the easiest?

    I downloaded the document which contains every module of the course. I discovered that each course can be : 40 or 20 credits.

    I would like to take 4 exams, however i really don't know anything about how each course is, thus I don't know which modules i should prefer.

    Second question : I was interested in private equity, m&a, corporate governance. Does anyone know if these modules are difficult, and how is the relevant exam structured?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Viola, I did a Law Masters at King's. All the the courses were tough in their own way and each of them required a good degree of concentration. But that's why the courses are well-rated.

    The only thing I would say is that if you are not familiar with the principles of Equity (which is not quite the same thing as private equity) and trust law in the English legal system then you will be at a disadvantage in these subject areas.

    So I would concentrate on courses with an international/transnational element to them as they will make a better fit with civil law principles. Also King's specialises in transnational law so corporate/p.e./m&a related courses with a transnational element may be of particular benefit to you.

    If you're not sure you can ask someone at the law school. But my advice is to make sure that you have fully read the course details first, so that your question does not duplicate information you may already have been given access to.

    thank you really much you were the one and only that replied.
    anyway, may you please tell me which courses in term of final exams are the easiest? which are the most difficult?
    i mean, i would like to choose two exams to take there wich are not really difficult, and two medium-difficulty since i will have to take corporate governance and I'm forced to.
    may you also tell me which courses will have a written final exam, and on the other side, which are the courses of which the exams consist in papers and homework?

    Hi Viola, I'm sorry I can't answer these for the simple reason that I do not know all of the courses available. There is a very large range of modules for the LLM at King's so I really cannot compare and, in any case, I studied for a very different Masters degree in Law.

    I would concentrate on those courses which are going to be useful and/or interesting for you; that is the best guarantee of success.
