LLM in PIL?


I am an Indian law student aiming to pursue LLM in Public International Law in the year 2017-18
I have shorlisted Leiden and Utrecht based on the faculties and the course they provide. I also hear the International legal studies LLM course in the University of Vienna is quite good, but I don't have concrete sources to rely upon.

I do not plan to come back to India after my masters so that is one of my major concerns. I understand this is nothing that can been guaranteed though. But I would prefer going to a University where there are good amount of recruitments.
Does anyone have any insight on this?

What kind of job would you be looking for after graduation? In an NGO, or something along those lines?

I think it's generally pretty hard for non-EU lawyers to transition to working in a European law.

You should ask the schools whether they think their programs would line up with your career goals. They should be pretty frank with you.

Hi,

Depending on your budget you should strongly think of checking out the Graduate Institute in Geneva. Their program in PIL, I believe, is very good and renowned, and its location in Geneva can seriously help you make the right connections if you want to work, for example, with international organizations. That could be helpful, especially if you do not want to go back to India afterwards.

Hello,

Like you, I am also from India. I graduated in 2016, and I've applied to (and been accepted by) Leiden for the Advanced Studies LLM in Public International Law.

Leiden is really well placed geographically, to offer internships and networking opportunities. You're going to be located at the heart of international law, with major UN Orgs. in the vicinity. This will also qualify you for a number of fellowships that you can pursue across the world. I have the same concerns you raised, but Leiden's acceptance has granted me some peace, finally! :)

Hi Gruberh,
Yes I am enrolled in Utrecht now. It has been a very good experience. The professors, atleast for my course (LLM in PIL) are very friendly and approachable. But I have heard it's not always he same for other courses. Classes are interactive to some extent, depends how much the students make out of the discussions. The city of utrecht is amazing! It has the perks of a big city in a small city. They do not provide a lot of help for career ahead of the master's, however if you approach a professor they will be willing to offer advice.
