Masters in Law and Finance


hedge
Hello,

I am from India. I hold a degree in Economics after which I worked with a top investment banking firm for 15 months. I then did law (from a well recognised university) and now have two years of work experience in litigation behind me. I am hoping to do my masters from one of the following universities. I'm hoping to be able to get some advice on which universities I should make my priority and whether I should apply to any others. Also any idea on my chances for admission to these universities and on work opportunities after the course for Indians would be much appreciated.

1. Oxford
2. ILF, Frankfurt
3. King's College, London
4. LSE
5. NUS, Singapore

Thank you!

Hey,

As far as I know only Oxford and Lse has the masters that u are looking for. LSE masters goes as Msc Law and Accounting. So I think those are the two options you should consider. If you have a very good first class from both the degrees, then u have a good chance of getting into Oxford ( I didn't hence rejected from Oxford). I got accepted from LSE though, so I will go ahead with that this year.

The prestige of your undergraduate degree matters for Oxford accrding to what I think. So try your luck with BOTH.

As far as NUS is considered, although the ranking is good, it seems too remote outside singapore.

I would like to know from which uni u are from and whether you have first classes? So I can advice u on the chances ✌️

Hi!

Thanks for your response. I did my Economics from Stella Maris, Chennai (well recognized by schools in the U.K.) and law from Delhi University. In Economics I hold a first class degree and in law I'm in the top 15% of my class. I was primarily considering Singapore and Germany because of the possibility of getting a job in those countries once I'm done with the course but since you suggest LSE and Oxford I'll definitely apply to them but I'm not sure of my chances with either.
