UVA LL.M. 2010

First weeks in Charlottesville

By Santa on Aug 22, 2009

As I could not resist to keep the UVA experience alive on LLM-guide (in the footsteps of Jaan), I will post some of my wonderful experiences during the year.

My applications to several law schools in UK and US and my acceptances in enough of them, put me to a choice of where to go. Thanks to a lot of positive feedback from alumni, I now have the pleasure to study in this great law school with 37 other LL.M. students from all over the world!

The UVA campus truly is incredible and deserves its status as the only university with World Heritage status in the US. The city is very beautiful and everybody is extremely friendly. The weather is great (better than Chicago and Michigan brr) and the recreational and cultural possibilities are endless.

The law school is very beautiful and staff and professors are extremely friendly and helpful as well. As we are a small LL.M. group they really put a lot of effort in emerging us in the US law school culture by f.e. organising events together with JD students. Studying law together with JD students really is incredible! The faculty is very gifted, making classes fun and interactive. Students are very well prepared. All this makes for a great educational experience!

It might be a bit early to make this bold statement after only two weeks in C'ville, but I will do it anyway: if you want a great lifelasting experience in an incredible law school with fantastic people, apply to UVA!

Should you do an LL.M. or a GDL?

Nov 14, 2019

An LL.M. is valuable, but it does not give you the right to practice law in the UK. A GDL does.
