    Hey,

    I am in final year politics student at the University of Nottingham and considering applying for a masters degree in "Legal and Political theory".
    I am hoping to apply for:

    - UCL: MA Legal and Political Theory
    - Warwick: MA Political and Legal Theory
    - York: LLM in Legal and Political Theory

    I'd prefer to study in London as to avoid accommodation fees as the tuition fees are expensive enough. Which do you think is the best course and does the fact that York offers an LLM make it more prestigious? Thanks

    Of those courses I'd say the UCL one is the best. Warwick second and York third. The fact that it's an LLM rather than an MA is of no significance.

    Thanks, is there any particular reasons as to why you would place UCL over Warwick and Warwick over York.

    The people who teach the course, basically. UCL has a very strong tradition in legal and political theory and has lots of great academics in the area. I'd also place Warwick second and York third on the basis of the same criterion.
