LLM in Stockholm

Yes, only follow the advice of a webiste. Great advice. A friend of mine did an LLM there last year and worked part-time at prestigiuos law firm without any difficulties whatsoever.

I was evidently misinterpreted... All I meant to point out is that they don't appreciate students who do not seem 100% committed. In view of their indications on their website you should thus not put this question when applying. However, even if it certainly is possible to pass the final exams it is quite difficult - in general - to graduate with honours working part-time during your study. Good luck - Maude

Keep in mind that this is Sweden , where you can easily find students graduating after 4, 5 and 6 years.

It all depends on your finances. If you got money you have Östermalm with clubs for the rich and wannabes. If u aint got the dough or silicon and greased back hair are not your preferred environment there are always the student parties on campus. Stockholm is mad expensive when it comes to alcohol so u should keep that in mind. If u tend to party on campus u will most likely socialise with foreign students. In the clubs downtown u WILL meet the locals. Male and female. It all goes down to the liquor. Apart from that I recommend doing trips to Helsinki, Tallin and Riga. The countryside is also very nice as are the 26,000 islands just of the coast of Stockholm.
As to part-time jobs. I am not an expert. If u r from an EU country there should be no problem with a permit. Translating work should be the easiest, I guess. Regarding jobs in the legal field I honestly don't know. You should check the websites of prestigous law firms with offices in Stockholm and see if they have any foreign lawyers from your country or even your law school.
The names I remember are:
VINGE, Mannheimer Swartling, Cederqvist, Linklaters. I don't think that if u get a job that it will interfere with your studies. My friend didnt work part-time, but he would have had the time, if he hadnt been drunk too often.
Hope I could be of some assistance.

... also, those with some business background and others check with the international consulting firms. Scandinavia isnt a big market (ca. 25 million people), but those who do cover it usually go to Stockholm due to the convience of the location. I know that Deloitte runs an office as well as Ernst & Young, ...

Hi All,

I had applied for LLM in IT law in the Stockholm University. The results are out for the LLM in IT- Dont know about the others. You can mail the respective co-ordinators and find out I guess.

All the best

I wrote an email to the SU and got the answer that the decisions for the Master Programme in European-Law are made and will send out tomorrow. There was a delay because the SU was overwhelmed with applications this year.

check the big firms in the countries you prefer. for the last years UK and US firms have been buying local firms to get started or widen their European business. Maybe you know somebody there, I don't know. Besides with an MBA you should also check the consulting firms. But I am for from being an expert, just some thoughts. But I do know that usually the bigger firms, at least in Germany and Mannheimer Swartling (I know they have one American and at least two solicitors) in Stockholm, Sweden, do employ the occasional foreign lawyer. Good luck

Hey Guys,

There is no thread of discussion created for LLM at Uppsala Uni (Sweden) - May I know whether anyone has been offered and/or accepeted to do the Master's course of International and Comparative Law at Uppsala Uni this Autumn 2008??

If yes, can advise on housing matters?
