What's the job opportunity after the LLM in international business law from Sorbonne Assas ?

I am currently undertaking the LLM in Assas. Back in Febraury the School organized a huge job fair where we had the opportunity to meet more than 40 law firms, investment banks, commercial banks, companies like Air France, Google etc. It has been one of the best experiences of the LLM. After that, It is really up to you enrolling into an opportunity, the School is not going to do that for you, but they can give you a hand if you need counseling or help with the paper-work. It is also fair to say that here in France, when people know you are from Assas, they look at you very differently as it is known for being the best law school in the country. As I told you, it is really up to you.

French fluency will make your job search a lot easier, as long as you show that you can deal with French clients and stake holders.

I hope this helps.

Hi Jaime,

I am the coordinator of SAILS LLM IBL programme in Singapore.

First of all, job opportunities during and after the programme may differ from which campus you are enrolled in.

In Singapore, international students get to work up to 16h a week along their studies and the programme is especially designed to be compatible with a professional activity. Once your registration for the LL.M. is confirmed we will get you in touch with our network of firms who hire interns/part-timers along the academic year. You may then transform your internship experience into a full time job once you graduate from the LL.M. Every year some of our graduates manage to get a full time job (and a working permit) in Singapore.

In Paris, there would be job fair opportunities although bear in mind that speaking French would be an advantage for your job search in France. In Mauritius, most of the students are working professionals. Students will have direct access to a strong network with the local law firms. Unfortunately I do not have enough information about the Dubai campus at this stage.

Forgive me, but that's incredibly vague.

You'd better serve the community here if you gave real examples of careers, and a sense of how likely this is to happen (ie do most students transition to Singapore after graduation? For those who have this goal, how many are successful?)

They mean that some of the students enrolled in the LLM are working part-time in different law firms and companies, using the student visa they got to undertake the program. After the completion of the program you get the chance to be sponsored by your employer and “transform” your internship experience into a full-time job. 
I would not think the University keeps track and metrics of how many students manage to get a work visa after the completion of the program.
Best,

Hi Chicken Soup, 

Thanks for joining the conversation.

First of all, our programme welcomes a mix of law graduates and fully qualified legal practitioners. From my observation, only half of our students are actively seeking for a work experience during their studies with a 70 to 90% success rate to find an internship. 

In general, our students seek our 9 month programme with the main goal to get as much exposure on the ASEAN region, work experience and to enrich their social and professional networks. Also, our campus is conveniently based at INSEAD Asia and our students get to meet the INSEAD MBA students and join their networking events.  


Now, that being said, about two-third of our students' goal after their LLM is to return to their own country, to complete their lawyer's qualification bar exam or to seek work as in-house counsel or an international law firm. Only a handful of our students have a deep interest to work in the ASEAN region or Singapore after the programme. For those few, there are opportunities and they do lend a job. 

However, most of them already have work experience in their field and have had some years of practice prior to the programme. A fresh graduate whose goal is to complete an LLM and get a full time job right after the programme may find it more difficult to achieve. They still have a good opportunity to get an internship during the programme. 

And as Juan has mentioned, we had cases of students successfully transforming their internship into a full time job.

To put things into perspective, there are about 20 students per cohort, 90% of them are not from Singapore.

Hoping this clarifies,
