LMM or MPP?


Hello all,

As a brief introduction, I'm an Indian law graduate who has been a corporate lawyer, a (legal) journalist and am now working as a researcher at a policy think tank (specialising in bankruptcy). I've been meaning to pursue masters- but I'm confused about whether I should go for an LLM or MPP. I do realise both courses offer very different things, but my confusion stems from the fact that I would like to continue and engage in policy making, without drifting too much from law. Ever since I have entered the field of public policy, what I feel is lacking is a strong foothold in economics. Was wondering if an LLM+Eco (or LLM in financial regulation/ bankruptcy) would be good bet or an MPP.

Anyone faced similar issues before?

Would love to hear from you :)

Thanks in anticipation!

It really depends on your goals. If I were you I would think very carefully about the next step(s) in my career before I made the decision. LLMs are typically for people who are practicing law or who are working in a closely related field, while an MPP might be a better choice for somebody in a policy-making body, a government role, or an NGO, etc.
