    I'd recommend Essex, but that's because I really did not like reading law at SOAS. There are a myriad of problems with the place. Admin is bad. The school's brand name is poor and limits employment outcomes. The faculty is hostile to students. Morale is low. The wankjob teaching property. All very bad things in my opinion. I've provided in-dept reviews of the place (Well, just for the law school) on other threads here, so please refer to them if you're interested in that sort of info

    SOAS has a better reputation that Essex imo and a lot of people I've met don't enjoy Essex overall.

    Yeah, pretty terrible actually. Might even say it was the biggest mistake of my life professionally speaking.

    Why?
    Was looking to go there through adjustment
    I have seen your posts but what didn't you like? The culture...the people..the teaching?

    Warning, take ANY advice from this SOASllbsurvivor with a grain of big salt...

    This person is a racist, as evidenced by his post on another topic about SOAS, is "SOAS any good"

    This demon on that post wrote:
    If you enjoy SOAS, good for you. I didn't and I know very few classmates who did, so I have no love for that place. The Earth may swallow it whole and never give it back up again for all I care. Especially the ****** who became the head of the law school."

    Now, of course, the six letter word, referring to, at that time, the dean of the law
    school, who was Black, is the "N" word, so take care in taking any opinion from
    such a looney-tunes type character...obviously a racist would not get on well
    with the SOAS crowd, if you read his other postings-he resents being taught by
    non-whites, makes several other racially loaded comments, & in general seems
    to be a miserable person wallowing in misery for his failure 9 years later to do
    anything with his university degree, you know-the kind of person who sits in
    their little room in the dark blaming others for their own failures. So take any
    advice, from a rodent such as this very lightly if you want an unbiased
    (no offense to rodents) viewpoint. Full disclosure, I have also been admitted
    into SOAS LLM program and am 100% looking forward to attending this 2017
    Fall.
    By the way
