Dear Diego,
I sent all required document to Stokholm, but still have not got anything. So I think they have not managed to process all documentation recieved.
Good luck

Hi Deigo and Turchik,
I thought I was the only one who has yet had no reply from Stockholm International Commercial Arbitration LLM Program. I applied for the program, and yet have had no response. But i do hope we shall all be responded soon, and I wish you all success, and maybe we may be classmates.

Diego,
Thanks for your e-mail and my answer will be on the discussionboard as you requested. Sorry to say, I do not know very much regarding the LLM programs at Stockholm University. These programs are rarely attanded by swedish students, for reasons I will explain. In Sweden the general law program required in order to attain entrance into the bar association is 4.5 years. For swedish law students it is therefore not very wise to gain an additional LLM in sweden - the only reason to get an additional LLM is to go abroad as swedish law firms generally consider international experience very favourably. Stockholm university as such is usually considered to be a very good place to get you swedish law degree, but as I said, I don´t know anything about their LLM programmes for foregin students. Stockholm is a very nice city, so I think you will have a good time.
Best regards,

Dear Turchik and Anderson,

I am considering to apply to Stockhlom next year only. Therefore, we will regrettably not end up being classmates this
year...
Yet, I would appreciate it if we could stay in touch in order
to have more feedback regarding the Stockholm LLM -
okay? Where are you two from, by the way?

Take care and cheers!

Hello everybody here,
I sent all the requirements to Stockholm, but I have no hope to be accepted anyway:((
I have a problem about TOEFL. They want us to take at least 260 (computer-based), but I think that taking 260 is very hard for a foreign student. Can the university make the score lower? Or how will I take 260?:)does anyone know anything about that? thanks:))

on the website it is said that approximately 250 TOEFL score (computer-based) is required.
I sent my application to Stockholm too, and still waiting. Does anyone know when they will decide?

hello
thank you very much for the answer.
I think they will probably explain who will be accepted after april or may.(It is my opinion ofcourse:))
by the way, can we work in the foreign law companies after taking an LLM? I mean can we work internationally?

Hi Barcelona,
With the name, you must be Italian, and have some support for that football team, with stars like Ronaldinho and Eto' Fils, whom I equally admire.

Saying we may not be classmates, is yet too early, as no reply has yet been had from the University, meaning we might have to reapply together with you if unsuccessful this year.

Hi Avilgun,
About TOEFL and English Proficiency, we are putting on same trousers, but you are even on the better side of it. I never sent any TOEFL as I never sat any, but simply sent an attestation from my University that I studied my LLB in English. I however hope that should be considered.

With regards to work, why not shoot one bird before you go for the other. Admission, you should hope for first of all, and when you've gotten that, then the question of work should be tackled. But objectively I should think if you have a good CV, which I believe you have, considering your spectacular manner of speech presentation, getting a job as an international student would be possible. I equally will have to look for a part time job, so as to have my bowels not a revolutionary type.

Hello!!
I am planning to apply to the program next year. But I have some questions in my mind. I hope you guys will be able to help me out with them.
In my country arbitration is not used commonly. Therefore, it is a 'must' for me to practice arbitration in US or europe. Now with this feedback I have to ask:
1-Would a LLM degree infrom an ivy league college (dispute resolution) or LLM degree from stockholm university assist me more in finding a job on this topic in either europe or US.
2-Is it possible for an international student with no chance of being admitted to the bar in sweden and no knowledge of swedish language to practice arbitration in a law firm in sweden? It is possible, ok, but is it probable?

with these questions asked I might be able to help you with your questions by:

It was the least I could do!! Thanks!!

Hi, I spent my ERASMUS year at Stockholm University. The school is very nice and considered to be among the best in Sweden. A friend did a L.L.M. there too. As to last year at least the University was not allowed to call the degree L.L.M. only Master of Law for reasons I dont really know. My friend was very happy with his program, other L.L.M. programs at SU where not so fondly spoken of. But they are all free at least.

Thanks for the feedback, Djampapua. Which Masters do you refer to when you say it was considered to be good? The one in Internat. Commercial Arbitration Law? If yes, then why did people deem it to be better than the other programmes? By the way, you're right about the title, it is not "LLM", but Magister Juris for reasons explained on their web page. One last question: Is it easy to meet people at Univ. of Stockholm and in Stockholm in general? Best - Marc

Hi Marc, my friend the Master of European Law. The teachers were good, he said, they also did trips to Bruxelles and have meeting with Sven Norberg who leads a unit in DG Competition and was a key player on the Regulation 1/2003 EC. I had him as a lecturer as well. I don't know anything about the Arbitration programme. We visited the Stockholm Chambers of Commerce in which the arbitration court is connected. As far as I know Stockholm is very well known among international companies for its arbitration court. So I would guess that the programme could be filled with high profile lecturers. But I don't know.
As to Swedish people: They take some time to warm up. As the programme lasts 9-10 months you will most likely socialise only with people from the different Master programmes. It is very international as far as I remember. South Africa, Britain, Eastern Europe, Asia, the lot. They try to diversify so you shouldnt have too many Germans in the M.L. programmes as are in the undergrad courses.
Well, to wrap it up, don't bet on making lifelong friends with a lot of Swedish students, but they are all very nice and polite people and depending where you live you should be able to make some friends. As for the international students you will have a blast. Had the time of my life there.
I hope I could help you out, if you need any further details I could give you the email of the friend who did the M.L.
Take care

Thanks a lot, Djampapua. This feedback will help me a lot. When you say you had the time of your life, do you refer to the partying? If yes, where did you party? On campus with many students from different Master programmes or rather "in private" with people you met in Stockholm ? Is the internat. sutdent community well organised?
Best regards and thanks again - Marc

Hi Djampapua,
Are students in Sweden permitted to take up part time work? If so, is it easy to find work?
