LLM in Germany


I am a law graduate from Pakistan. Confused like many others out there. Anyhow, can anybody tell me what are the employment prospects after getting done with the LLM in Germany?

So it wouldn't be incorrect to suggest that Canada has more legal jobs than Germany/Belgium can provide?

It is incorrect.

As far as the specific prospects are concerned:
Which LLM do you want to do?
In which legal areas have you specialized?
-> based on some additional information one could actually give some advice...

Or you could just follow the "there is a place"-advice, the universities will be more than happy to accept thousands of €€€ in tuition fees...

P.S.
You probably already do know, that the LLM in Germany does not provide any access to the bar/ bar exam whatsoever...

Thank you so very much for your kind response both of you Pro Lawyer and Flori. One last thing i would like to ask to you people is that I am quite confused with regard to equivalency of qualification of my Law Degree. I have completed my BA-LLB (5 year Program) in Pakistan with a total of 17 years of education. Now please tell me whether i am eligible to get enrolled in Germany for LLM admission directly or do i need to do any upgrdading or foundation course.

Under these circumstances I would suggest something altogether different and head for one of those courses, as they provide you with a high level of employability:
IP Law in Munich

Finance in Frankfurt

Thank you.
I just took a look at these two programs. Both of them sound great. I supose they are most expensive ones with a good reason.

Bavaria will be the most suitable for me, since Im moving to Germany with my boyfriend who will start working there. I think that it would be wise if I would apply for multiple courses in Bavaria. So, does anyone know something about uni Augsburg or uni Wurzburg? These cities are relatively close to Munchen, and Im thinking of appliying there as well.
