Am I eligible to apply this LLM?

Hi,

I am studying BSc Computer Science and Management at the University of Nottingham and will be graduating in Summer 2017 with a 2:1. I am not sure if I am eligible to apply International Financial and Commercial Law LLM at KCL (https://www.kcl.ac.uk/study/online/international-corporate-financial-and-commercial-law-llm/index.aspx) when I only got work experience that related to IT or marketing.

It will be great if you can give me some advice on other LLM that I am eligible to apply as well.

No you do not. Computer science and management are not in any way related to financial law, not even one bit. LLMs are traditionally for people with an undergraduate degree in law. So the answer is that you do not qualify.

If you want to do an LLM, you need to do an undergraduate degree in Law or atleast have some professional experience in Law. Coming from a non related background shall not favor you in the face of intense competition for places.

Hey Niki,

It sounds good that being a CS student you look forward to go for LLM but it requires undergraduate degree in Law.

You'd be probably better off applying to an MSL or something comparable, which is designed for those without law backgrounds:
