Any information about the LL.M program


Ger
I am very interested in the LL.M Business (International) Program at Chulalongkorn university.

Could anybody maybe answer me the following questions:

- when does the program start in 2009 (i saw that there are different dates on different websites...)?

- i did't graduate a TOEFL-exam until now and i don't know if i will find time to do it in the next time because of my current job. Is it absolutely necessary to be accepted in the program?

- can anybody tell me something about the level of difficulty of the programm, the essential effort and the number of weekly classhours?

I would be very grateful for your information. Thanks a lot for your help.

The website says that the course starts in May. As for your other questions, I would be interested in hearing the answer as well.
Also, does anyone know how competitive the admissions are?
What kind of backgrounds do successful applicants have?
I'm in the top 15% of a top 50 U.S. law school, and would like to get some idea as to what my chances are of admission. Any information would be helpful.

What kinds of jobs have non-Thai graduates landed in Thailand?

I know that Chula offers the best program, but how does Assumption's program compare? Are they comparable, or is AU a significant step down?
Thank you.

Hey Dave23

Thanks a lot for your answer. Do you make an application for Culalongkorn?

As i heard in the meantime, Chulalongkorn shall be the best university in Thailand.

Does anybody know how the reputation of Thai-universities is in Asia?

hi everyone,

the new program website is http://www.law.chula.ac.th/web/llm/

i'm currently studying in this program. joined may last year. the admission for this year 2009 is still open i think, you start some time around the end of april/early may but they still might change the dates.

i dont remember all the questions posted about the program, but from what i recall yes you need to take the TOEFL or the CU-TEP exam (trust me take the toefl its easy and you can use it anywhere in the world for 2 years after test date)

Regarding the fees, the website says:
"the tuition fee for the one-year Program, inclusive of the Overseas Research Trip and all course materials, is 513,000 Thai baht. It is payable in three equal installments in May, September, and January. The tuition fee for students electing not to take the Overseas Research Trip is 423,000 Thai baht. All prices are subject to change per academic year."

chulalongkorn is indeed the best university in thailand; not just reputation, but standard wise. basically they have a reputation to live up to. the program is going through quite a number of changes at the moment (for the better). the staff are all extremely friendly and ready to help. by all means, the program is far from perfect, but if you are interested in a 1 year LLM in one of the greatest cities in the world, studying quite a wide range of subjects, then this LLM is probably for you. very few of my lecturers are even thai; they are either from the partner universities (UBC canada, victoria canada, kyushu japan) and a few practitioners here and there.

i think someone asked about the graduates; the program is trying to put together a functioning alumni website of some sorts, but as far as I know the graduates go into international law firms. obviously we have the advantage of being exposed to aspects of international business practice that other LLMs in thailand do not offer. the fact that it is in English is a huge plus.

anyways i am more than willing to give more info on the program to anyone who is interested. i don't come to this website anymore, so if you want some info contact me at rahat_123@hotmail.com and i can forward your questions to the assistant director of the program. you folks take care.
