Low tuition fees


linda
I hold an LLB from a Canadian university and I will become a qualified lawyer in Canada in July 2005.

I would like to work overseas as a lawyer but it seems pretty hard to find a decent job since I do not have much experience (other than the 10 months of articling at a national law firm in Canada). For this reason, I am thinking of doing an LLM in either corporate or commercial law. I am fluent in English, French, and Italian. Therefore I can study at most universities in Europe.

I would appreciate information regarding universities that offer LLM programs in corporate or commercial law that offer low tuition fees and where the deadline for fall 2005 admission has not passed. I am hoping that the fact that I am an Italian citizen will give me access to programs with low tuition fees.

Thank you in advance,

Linda

Dear Linda
Maybe you can still apply to Aberdeen, for example. I heard they have very late deadlines. However, I only know from hearsay. Check out their website. As to low tuition fees, the lowest you can get is University of Stockholm, since NO TUITION FEES AT ALL are required in Sweden. I think the offer a Masters in comm.law. Yet, please note that according to their website and due to some Swedish particularities it is not called LLM, but Magister Juris (which is an MJur, but I don`t think they use this abbreviation either).
Hope this helps a bit - all the best - M

By the way, University of Uppsala which has an excellent reputation offers - if I remember correctly - LLM programmes. Being in Sweden, no tuition fees at all. In Scandinavia Uppsala has an outstanding reputation - more than Stockholm it seems.

Hello! I'm italian, and tution in italy are SO low that they don't really count! For example the is a university in the south that has a pretty good rating,it's in my home-city: it's called Bari, in the south-east of Italy, in the region of Puglia! Not only a year of law school there costs around 1000 euro (almost nothing) but since the south of Italy is much poorer than the rest of Europe, there you can have a good living without wasting money! And if you have the italian citizenship you can also apply for a public scholarship that not only covers the tution (so those 1000 euros are paid by the state) but it also gives you money for the rent you pay..
The only problem is burocracy....but if you plan it well and you make a lot of phone calls (better than emails...) you can plan a good program! Plus the deadline is october 1st, and is not for an "application", but just for "registration" since here there is no limit in the number of students! The quality of the professors is very good...but the university is poor. So...you have to take care of planning well....because offices are not so helpful, but you will not find any third obstacles....
Good luck... CIAO!

No, most of them are in italian.....and for this reason for italian speakers it's a very good chance...professors do not have many post graduate students, so they follow them quite well....and if you chose universities like Bari, just for example, the only real obstacle is to take care of all the burocracy and to be stubborn toward the sleepy people ;)
