EMLE vs. EMTTLF


I've got admitted to both programs. I understand the two programs focus on different subjects, one in Law and Economics and the other Int'l Trade and Finance. However, besides this difference, could anyone provide insights on ups and downs for either program?

Information about EMTTLF is especially limited on this board - is it because the program is relatively new?

Thanks!

I ve been admitted to EMTTLF (with specialization at IFL Frankfurt and with Erasmus scholarship), but have been denied to EMLE.
I realy do nor know what to do, since I work with finance law and LLMs at USA universities are more recognized to such area. I apply to some USA universities, but have been admitted only at Duke until now. No scholarships, but I trying to be sponsored by the company where I work.
What you guys would do in my place?
best regards!!

I would surely accept Duke. It is an incredible university and its LLM program is regared in the entire world. I have some friends that have taken Duke and they have just loved it... everything about it. The city, the college spirit and, of course, the LLM itself. All of them got offers from top law firms in the US and abroad and doing fine!! Besides that the LLM of Duke is a 1 year program, while the EMTTLF is a 2 year program... that makes the whole difference regarding beeing placed back in the "job market"... I would certainly attend Duke... the extra $$ that you will spend are totally worth it!!!

Hi Imilanez, as I said I have been put in a waiting list. That's very bad but let's see If I am accepted.
I am from Barcelona (Spain) and currently I am working as a visiting lawyer at Fox Mandal Little which it's a top indian international law firm very active in cross-border transactions. The problem it's that the ILF told me that till May I will not be able to know whether I have been accepted or not.

lmilanez, seems like since we have not received any messages from them, we have not received EM scholarship :(. On the their website it is stated that successfull candidates will be punctually contacted. And now they do not answer any letters concerning application status. Meanwhile, in the letter of acknowledgement of documents receipt they wrote that we would keep you informed about your application status. Don't know what to think.

For the EMTTLF (with a second year in ILF), I got a sense that it really is a combination of the Deusto/Tilburg one year LLM of In't Business Law (http://www.transnational.deusto.es/academic/#llm) and the ILF LLM, with possibily a slight modification. Both programs are quite good though.
