London School of Economics?

<p>Does anyone here have personal or close second-hand experience with graduate work at the London School of Economics? If so, any thoughts on the experience? Courses of study? Ability to pair with a law degree?</p>


<p>LSE has a good reputation, certainly in the top 10 in the UK. International tuition is quite a bit more expensive than UK or EU rates. Bear in mind that London is the most expensive city in the world to live in at the moment (along with Oslo). </p>

<p>I looked into pursuing a law degree at LSE, but it appeared (please tell me if I have this wrong) that the solicitor/barrister career track is completely different from US legal studies. You would have to repeat much of the coursework in the US to pass the bar, is what I'm trying to say. Unless you are doing a comparative study of parliamentary vs. judicial procedure, it could be a long and expensive detour.</p>


<p>Ah: clarification...what I was thinking was a combo degree with LSE/Law akin to a Public Policy/Law program such as offered by the Kennedy School here in the USA in conjunction with several law schools.</p>

<p>I've never seen a law school with an established relationship with LSE for a JD/MPP, but it might be able to be done ad hoc...most of the law schools I looked at only publicized JD/MPP with both schools from the same university, but there seems to be some possibility for dual degrees at Harvard, Yale, Berkeley, Columbia, and NYU where the law degree comes from one of those and the MPP from another, or an MPA from Princeton.</p>

<p>I'm in a dual-degree (law and urban planning) program now and am really happy...but if I were doing it at 2 different schools it would be a LOT harder. Honestly, your D is so young that another year of her life might not make too big a difference (i'll be 25 when i finish both my degrees; most people at my school enter law school at that point!)--it might be easier to do one degree first and then the other, so she can take the full selection of courses at both schools and not feel constrained by the shortened time period.</p>

<p>sorry if this makes no sense--i'm all wrapped up today in figuring out my own classes for next semester with the dual-degree constraints. feel free to pm me for more info on my experience.</p>

<p>Don't forget, Law is an undergraduate degree in the UK. I believe different schools offer different pairings. </p>

<p>LSE offers a Msc Law with Anthropology <a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Here is the website for Kings with contacts. They have an extensive list of postgrad law programs. <a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Does she have to be in London? Shouldn't she think about Oxbridge as well?</p>
