Legal education is dynamic. It changes, improves, develops and is updated. Given various events occurring worldwide, e.g., innovations, technology, climate change, environmental destruction, artificial intelligence, cybercrimes, etc., new laws continue to be enacted. This is why law graduates and individuals with careers in the law are always on the lookout as to how they can improve and enhance their legal knowledge. One concrete way of doing this is by obtaining an LLM degree.
Just as there are many law schools to choose from, there are also a large number of LLM programmes available to prospective students. Though this may prove confusing, it is in fact advantageous as it allows for the acquisition of specialised legal intellect from a roster of choices. To help students who want to pursue LLM degrees in UK, a ranking of the top UK law schools for 2018 was recently published by The Guardian, a popular publication based in UK.
The ranking of UK law schools is done by the publication annually, with this year's top ten law schools being:
- Cambridge University
- Oxford University
- Queen Mary University of London
- Durham University
- London School of Economics and Political Science
- University of Dundee
- University of East Anglia
- University of Leeds
- York University
- University College London
All these premier law schools offer different LLM programmes. With the top ranking accorded to them, it is easier for potential students to finalise their decisions on which university to choose and what LLM programme to pursue.
