LLM after obtaining Master's degree in Croatia?


ajelovac

Hi guys, I obtained my Master's degree in Law (we don't have specializations) in Croatia last year. I'm thinking of working outside of Croatia and so far it seems that without studying law in the country where I'd like to work there is no possibility of employment. That's why I considered doing an LLM for a year, just to build up the possibility of getting a job. The question is, is it worth it? It is a lot of money that I would need to invest after already studying for 5 years, and I'm not really sure if it will improve my chances a lot.
If you think it will, which field should I go for- I was thinking that international law would make the most sense.
Thanks for your help :)

Llm wouldnt be enough again but without it there are no chances to work outside your country cuz you wont know the law there.
Llm and then 3years as a paralegal to obtain the lawyer proffession there.

There is specialization in Croatia, 5th year ;-)

If you don't know what you're interested in, try working first and then pursue further studies...
Regarding money, there are always scholarships, maybe you can get a paid internship before the LLM and so on, there are many possibilities

I don't know how it works in Zagreb, but in Rijeka you choose your subjects on the 5th year but it doesn't show in your degree- we all have the same specialization, Master in Law.
The thing is that there are no law related jobs to apply for outside of Croatia, except a paralegal, a secretary or something like that and even for that they require experience of 2-3 years minimum.
So basically, I guess that the choices are to either stay in Croatia or work in another field.. :/
andrea123, you think that LLM would make a difference in finding a job outside of Croatia?

I think that it is almost impossible without it...

And I wouldn't say that there are no legal jobs that you can apply for abroad, take a look at any EU or international institution, big audit firms etc.
