LLM Application.


Hello everyone! i was wondering that how much weightage is given to job experience esp in universities such as Oxbridge or the Ivy leagues? i plan to apply right after my LLB finishes and i have internship experience working with lawyers and have published articles and worked in research. Would this experience make my application stronger or in your opinion should i work a year or so before applying?

There are many applicants who are in a similar position to your own, and get admitted each year. Work experience is not necessarily required for most LLM programs, but some programs, such as the one at Columbia, do prefer candidates have some kind of work experience. I'd say if your undergrad is strong, you have published articles and can get strong recommendations - and aren't targeting programs like Columbia - you should be ok.

Yes i have been told that Columbia looks at work experience but what about the other ivy league universities? I searched alot however none of them seem to explicitly say that they require work experience.
