I am currently working as a second officer onboard Maersk vessels. I am planning to complete my Masters exam from southampton UK in April 2013. After that I am currently planning to do my LLM (maritime law). Will I get admission for the LLM program, if I only possess a certificate of competency for Masters, in the US. I would like to know which are the best places to do LLM from and what are my career prospects (having a background in the merchant navy). Also how much will it cost (rough estimate)?
