The reality is Melbourne/Sydney/UNSW are all above Kings. Both in terms of cohort and curriculum.

No. I was already in-house with a F500 in a regional role.

The problem is moving up. I started out my in-house career with a German company, and everyone in the legal and compliance department (at HQ) had at least a masters. Many of them had PhDs.

I thereafter left the German company and was offered a position with a US company which stated in their jd that post-grad degree was preferable. I did not take up this offer.

Instead, I joined a European JV and in the welcome email sent to global legal colleagues introducing me, head office wrote: xx graduated from King's College, London with an LLM in xxxx".

this reminds me of how meaningless the NUS v KCL debate here is.
Just debating with myself about moving to New York v London - USA domestic law is of course incredibly lucrative (more than any other type of law in the world), but 1) unlike English law which is transferrable in M&A, Construction, Projects, etc. it's only really transferrable for Capital Markets and some types of banking and 2) NY hours are just brutal.
