LLM in Europe (English language program only please)


Hey everyone around the world,

I have decided to apply for an LLM degree and I'd like to ask the community to assist me in finding an appropriate fit.
I am from the United States and I went to lesser known school and didn't do well at all in classes due to various reasons. Have a pretty pathetic GPA - 2.5 or so...

I was reading the previous posts and I am going to apply to the University of Essex as well as the University of Swansea. I don't have much of extensive law experience - I have clerked at a local law firm for a couple of years, have the ton of volunteer work and basically have goofed off a lot. My mindset is different now and I am pretty serious and motivated so past shortcomings shouldn't reflect on how I shall perform.

I looked at FU Berlin but their program is offered in Moscow and secondly, you need to know both Russian and German (I am fluent in Russian but don't know any German).


So to all the kind and helpful souls our there who want to see me succeed and make my mother proud, please assist me in finding a reputable LLM program that will not only will fill me with knowledge but will also assist me in becoming a better practitioner of law and of course attractive to future employers.

I majored as an undergraduate in Criminal Justice and have clerked for an Immigration attorney, so my interests in law are vast.

I don't want to do my LLM in the US because Europe is an awesome place and I'd love the opportunity to experience it for a year, if possible of course.

Cheers

Hey there, if you're looking mostly into the UK, you should probably post this in the UK & Ireland section, there you'll have more success, I guess!

You should look at the Netherlands. Plenty of LLM programmes taught in English (Groningen, Maastricht, Tilburg, etc.). However you usually need to have a competent GPA for entry. You can of course research and see what possibilities there are. Good luck.

I am going to apply to as many schools as I can!

There isn't an application fee and I want to find out for certain what programs will give me a chance or not.

Thank you for the responses - keep them coming!

The TA from Berlin and a current student of them gave a kind of Q&A over here: https://llm-guide.com/board/europe/business-and-competition-berlin-198117

Hi Alydarvs! I am also looking at FU Berlin but at their MBL programme, not the Russian one. I think studying in Europe is a great possibility, especially in an exciting city such as London, Berlin or Barcelona! I am really hoping to be accepted to experience this! I used to look at London degrees but they are so expansive and I don't know what will happen after UK leaves the EU.

Dear All, I am a lawyer from India and I am also looking for English LLM programs in Europe. Has anyone more information on the UK, Germany and Netherlands programs mentioned here? I am looking into business and commercial law!

Here's some interesting information from a Q&A kind of thing (https://llm-guide.com/board/europe/business-and-competition-berlin-198117#post-id-198268) from the Berlin programme (https://llm-guide.com/schools/europe/germany/fu-berlin-institute-for-german-and-european-business-competition-and-regulatory-law)

Of course the UK (and Ireland) offers the most programmes in English. But also Sweden and the Netherlands have a lot of these programmes (as far as I can tell). About the GPA I am not sure but I guess that most reputable universities also have a higher GPA....
