LLM in International Commercial Arbitration and subsequent opportunities


Mkrishna04
Hi, I am a Commercial Dispute Resolution Lawyer from India with professional experience of 2.5 years. I did the undergraduate course from a National Law University. I am interested in applying for Masters in International Commercial Arbitration (not any region specific). One of the most important factor for me in deciding the place to apply for Masters is subsequent career opportunities after doing the masters, outside of India.

Would anyone shed some light on it and help a fellow out?

An LLM isn't necessarily a great enabler of international mobility. I would say that most who complete LLMs go back to their home countries after they graduate. There wouldn't be the same level of careers support as their would be for say, a world-class MBA.

A lot of this comes down to language spoken and visa issues. Many English speakers go to the UK or the USA to study, because they speak the language, and find that the visa rules make it hard to land jobs after graduation.

On the other side is countries in mainland Europe, like say Germany, that have better visa policies for internationals but where jobs require knowledge of you know, German.

For English speakers, Canada / Australia / New Zealand are good middle grounds, but the job markets there are not always ideal.
