LLM & Job Opportunities afterward


damsca

Hello...
Can anyone tell me about the LLM in Uni of Adelaide? Is that program any good?
Also... I gather if one stays for 2 years in Australia, then he can apply for permanent residency. Is that true?
If I enroll in a 2-year LLM course, will this satisfy the 2-year requirement for applying for PR?
And lastly, what abouit job opportunities in Australia for a foreigner with a foreign LLB and (hopefully) an Australian LLM?
Thank you.

hi damsca,

i'm an adelaide university LLB graduate so i can reflect on the school generally. adelaide is one of the smallest group of eight law schools, but it also has a solid reputation. it is the second oldest law school in the country and its top graduates are regularly employed at the top law firms ie Allens Arthur Robinson, Mallesons, Freehills and so on. being small has it advantages and disadvantages: there are fewer oppertunities to study innovative courses. on the other hand, law school is a bit more intimate than say, melbourne, or sydney. the city of adelaide is also quite pretty. however roughly 25% of adelaide graduates work in sydney or melbourne because the adelaide legal market is weak. some say adelaide law school is also insular: many students who go there have come from private schools and it is the most WASPISH (White Anglo Saxon Protestant) of any Australian Law School. so it is old money, old adelaide, but people are friendly and the school has a good reputation. one downside is that the LLM program is quite new. i cant comment on your job prospects as an international student, but as i say, most good adelelaide grads get top jobs.

I believe for citizens of many countries, completing a Master's-level degree will provide you with enough points to meet the PR requirements.

On the staying in Australia - time spent on a student visa does NOT count, but you can get better advice at the Government Immigaration department website: http://www.dimia.gov.au/ (which might be about to change, as the department has just changed its name to Immigration and Citizenship).
