Cambridge LLM

The University of Cambridge is one of the oldest universities in the world. Their Faculty of Law is considered to be one of the best, if not the best, in the United Kingdom.  According to the Complete University Guide, it is the best Faculty of Law in the country, although The Guardian ranks it 3rd behind Oxford (it’s age-old rival) and the London School of Economics.  Cambridge is particularly reputed in the field of International Law.  Its LL.M. program is very selective, and the school accepts around 150 students into this program every year.  Cambridge makes clear that the main factor that weighs in admissions decisions is academic results, and successful applicants are expected to have graduated in the top 10% of their class.  In addition to the LL.M. program, Cambridge has recently introduced the Master’s in Corporate Law (MCL) focused on those who will be working in business and transactional law.  The MCL program is far smaller, and accepts around 25 students per year.
