I am starting the LLM in European Litigation in Luxembourg in a few weeks. It looks good as most courses are taught by judges at the ECJ and the CFI, and it's usually followed by an internship at the ECJ. I f anyone else knows more about it, I would be grateful for the extra info!

Hi there,
How is the acceptance of the LLM in European Litigation in the professional market? I'm a brazilian lawyer and I'm interested in working as a lawyer in Europe. Does anyone knows if that is possible without having a EU passport?

Unfortunately, that is not possible because you are only admitted to practice law in Brazil and not in an european jurisdiction. Furthermore, If you are not a citizen of the european union you would not be ablle to find a job in Europe. You must have at least a valid work permit. If you really want to practice law in an european country I recommend you to enroll in an LLB in a law school located in the country in which you are interested to practice law or you can also try to take the bar exam in France. by, the way, the University of Luxembourg has been created in 2004. the University is currently trying to attract foreign students in order to create a world wide reputation ( maybe in 20 years)

FYI, the Master in European Litigation in Luxemburg is not really an LLM. In fact, it shouldn't be on this website. It's a French/Lux Master. It is easier to become a lawyer in Lux than in France (you just have to study Lux law for 6 months, and internships are usually well paid), but I don't know what the conditions are for non-EU citizens...

A LLm is just a particular kind of master (Legum Magister : Master of Laws) . Moreover a LLm could be, in some countries, a four years degree whereas a Master degree in continental Europe (under the bologna process) is a least a five years degree.

Concerning access to a bar in Europe, it depends of each country. Indeed, some have bilateral agreement concerning qualification as solicitor. Moreover, in most country practising as corporate lawyer (and not as solicitor) does not require any special qualification.

There are some exceptions on the Bologna process. The Netherlands has an official LLM program, which lasts 4 years (3 year bachelor 1 year master). I do know there are more countries, however I could not tell you exactly which.

Hi,

I'm also very interested in the European Litigation master and I already had contact with some students that did the master last year.
Your French needs to be very good... Almost all the lessons are teached in French (maybe 2 or 3 in English) and you have to take your examens in French too (except for the English courses of course). I think that it is because of the fact that the 'official language' of the European courts is French... Most of the judges (and teachers) prefer French...

My french isn't that good i must say (although I'm from Belgium, the Dutch part), but I suppose you will learn a lot of french when you are there.
So the language isn't the biggest problem normally :-)

Where are you from Gunila? Just to get an idea where my next year classmates are coming from? ;-)

I hope I have helped you a bit...

Hi, I'm interested in the European Criminal Law master. Is there anybody who knows, if there is any possibility to achieve this LL.M. in only one year. Two years seem very long to me.
Thanks, Thierry

Do you already have a law degree?
If you alreday have it, I suppose you can skip the first (more general year)... so then you can do the criminal specialisation in 1 year...
it's like that for the european litigation, so I suppose it will be the same for the criminal master

Hope I have helped you :-) Karen

Hi everybody,

I am currently pursuing my LL.M. in Commercial Law at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam, the Nethelands.

I would like to apply for the Master in European Law and specialise in European Banking law.

Does someone know the level of French that is required? I suppose that most classes are in English because in legal Banking practice everything is in Englis. Is this correct?

Anyone else planning to apply for the Banking specialization?

By the way, i dont think that this is a LL.M. According to my info an LL.M. is a Master of Laws and this master is a Master in European Law. So i don not think that you will get a LL.M. degree but correct me if i am wrong..

Hey!
Well I do think that your French has to be quite good for several reasons:
1. Luxembourg has 3 official languages, but French is the language for law.
2. The professor in charge of this master is French.
Some lectures will be given in English, but from what I've heard French remains the dominant language. However, as most professors and lecturers are foreigners/Luxembourgish, they won't ask you to be totally fluent.

I think this is an LL.M degree/Master 2 according to the French system. As they do have a general master in European law the one you intend to do is an LL.M. But call them if you have any questions.

Good luck!

The last part isn't very clear. What I mean is that the master in European law (4th year) is the first step before completing one of the 3 LL.M's (5th year). But of course they won't ask you to complete that master if you've already studied law for 4 years elsewhere.

This is a brand new Master here in Luxembourg, but I can tell it's full of promises as we do have teachers coming from different universities from all over the world and above all, we have some professional specialists coming from prestigious law firms. Quite half of the courses given in english.
I come from Paris and I do not regret ;-)

If I can help, please let me know.

HI JLG and hello to everyone!
Thank you very much for your readiness to help, this is in fact what this Discussion Board should be about: sharing experiences and comments to help prospective LL.M. students to chose the program that suit best their aspirations.

As I am interested in applying to the LL.M. in European Banking and Financial Law, I would like to have some comments on the program contents: is it all about theory or is it a more practice oriented program? and what about the links with the practitioner that are involved as lecturers?
