LL.M. and LL.M. (Adv.)


Simon

Hello everyone!
I am in the early stages of planning my LL.M. year (2007/8). One of the universities I'm most interested in is Leiden.
But I have a question - does anyone know what is the difference between their 'Master of Laws' (LL.M.) and 'Master of Advanced Studies' (LL.M Adv.) programmes? Can anyone explain? So far the only difference I've been able to find is the one in tuition fees - the advanced one is eight times (!) more expensive...
Other info/advice on possibilities of doing an LL.M. in Int'l Criminal Law elsewhere welcome!

Greetings from Slovenia. It's sunny here!

Hi Simon
Well, the LLM (adv) is supposed to be a master of really high level. In other universities you will find that only people who work can be admitted in these kind of master. But of course in Leiden you are not required to have working experience. Furthermore, as you can see in the study programme, the courses in the LLM adv are better. if you don't have a LLB i would recommend you to do the normal LLM but if you have go for the advance one.

Greetings from Greece...it is more sunny here!!!!

I would have thought that an advanced LLM was for people who already had LLM degrees though I've never heard of such a thing before coming across this post. I looked at the Leiden site and they seem to to say that you are only eligible to apply for the LLM (Adv) if you have completed a masters degree elsewhere. Must be a tough programme... !

I have no idea about why they call "LL.M. (Adv.) either. However, I guess it may need someone who have work experience or may be graduate master degree? I have applied for Int. Tax Law but I have master degree in finance from US. So, hopefully, it will works for me.

Greeting from Thailand, it's sunny everyday here and hot!

yeah i get the impression that the LLM adv is for people who have had work experience in international law ... and want to further their knowledge. plus it doesnt have the home fee.
