Intellectual Property (IP)/ Information Tehnology (IT) LLM


IamTheLaw

Hey there,

I believe we all ask ourselves the following questions so here it goes :)

Which IP/IT LLM would be recommendable in order to have the possibility to work for EU institutions or for a law firm/association/NGO in Bruxelles?

Leiden, Tillburg, Liege?

I know this is a thread opened for "Europe" section, but the question is also available for working in the UK.

Queen Marry,Glasgow?

I hope you will find this post useful.

Hey!
Is there a LLM in ICT in Liège? I did not find it...
Anyway did you consider LLM in IP&ICT Law at KULeuven Brussels?
I think it's quite interesting too... I'm going to apply to QM, LSE, KULeuven and Tilburg..and maybe stockolm!

Hi Giuliettina,

In what concerns Liege there is an LLM regarding IP -> http://www.llm-guide.com/university/533/university-of-liege-liege-competition-and-innovation-institute/programs

The KU Leuven was an enthusiastic option but i've read that you have to already posses an LLM in order to apply for their LLM. I believe this is also the case for Maastricht University.

I really do not understand why they impose such restrictive conditions for these interesting LLM's.

QUML and KCL are very good choices. However, the tuition fee is around 15.000 euros. Any ideea if they grant scholarships that will allow you to pay less from the tuition fee?

Stockholm and Uppsala sound very good as well! As for Tillburg, a colleague of mine really enjoyed doing an LLM there. So...congratulations for your choices!

Keep me (us) posted :)

Can I ask you where are you from? Do you have just a LLB? Because I'm italian but we don't make any differences between LLB and LLM. We just do a 5-year degree and I don't know if I can consider it a LLM...
I completely agree with your concerns on QM and KCL.. They cost too much and life costs in London are quite high.
Did your friend attend this ICT LLM in TIlburg?
I'm trying to find someone who did these specific LLM in KULeuven or Tilburg but I can't find anyone..
Btw you are certainly able to apply in Tilburg, aren't you?

I am from Romania and did a 4 year degree in law.

I think you should ask the universities where you intend to apply if your 5 years degree consists of LLB plus LLM. I think that if you followed the Bologna system, 3 years will be LLB and the other 2 LLM.

My colleague did not attend the ICT LLM in Tillburg but she spoke only of great things about that university. Unfortunately, because there is a sense of competition between candidates not many of this forum members are keen to share information so that's why you probably did not find any information.... :)

I believe that I meet the entry requirements for Tillburg but I hope to be accepted at QMUL, KCL, Glasgow or Leiden :)

You can also PM me if you would like to discuss it more about the LLM's.

I don't know about looking for a job after graduating, I guess I'm about to find out soon enough but when it comes to opportunities for taking internships along with the studies our lecturers are really active in keeping us informed about possibilities that are relevant to the courses we're following. We've been notified about quite a few opportunities via our electronic course managament system so far, including one in Geneva, and I have already had the chance to be approved and participate in one of them.
