I am from the United States, (ma sono dell'origine italiana). Interestingly enough, I used to live in Stockholm, where I worked for an IP firm and lived on the Stockholm University campus with students who were in the LLM program there.

I found the LLM in Turin to be a fantastic program. The distance learning section was a good preparation for the face-to-face period. The in-class semester was THE most rewarding academic period I have ever had (and I have a BA, MA, and JD already).

The classes ranged from "somewhat dull" to "incredibly exciting and interesting." I really depended on the professor. I also found that the students did not always agree on which professors were good and which were bad. So, the good news is that if you find that you are listening to a lecture that you do not find enjoyable, it will be over quickly and you can start with a new professor.

The structure of the program is great. It was a little too patent-heavy for me, but that is not my research area of interest. The fact that you have students from all over the world provides you the opportunity to learn from your classmates as much as from the professors. I do wish the course integrated more of this "horizontal learning," but I only say that as a suggestion as to how it could be even better -- not as a criticism of the program as it is.

I did find that the program really does respond to what you put into it. What I mean is that some classmates did not like the program at all. However, I found that those who were not happy there were either not really that interested, or did not put in that much effort. Those of us who were actually interested really enjoyed it.

I work full time for my own law firm - so attending this program was a GREAT hardship for me. Even so, I would do it all over again tomorrow.

I honestly can not say enough good things about the program. The only caution I would give to you is that if you're from Italy anyhow, perhaps you would expand your horizons a little more if you went to Stockholm -- give yourself the opportunity to live in another country for a while. But, that is truly nothing more than a personal decision for you. We had four Italians in our class, and they all seemed to like it just fine.

If you have any other questions about the program, you can post them here, or you can feel free to send me an email directly. www.randazza.com is my firm website, so you can find my contact information there. I would be happy to put you in touch with some of my classmates too, if you would like other opinions. But, I can tell you that we all still keep in touch, and I think almost all of them wish that the program was still going on -- and we were all very sad for it to end.

Thanks marcorandazza for the sharing. I just got the offer and accepted the offer. Patent is my major interest (and problem). I guess I will love this program.
