Second LLM or PhD?


Faramith

Hello,
I've been admitted to IT Law LLM in my home country(Turkey) and I am planning to move to Netherlands for being a data privacy and antitrust consultant and I have a company there with another lawyer friend of mine.

I am not planning to stay in academia at Netherlands but focus on my company. But I am unsure whether I should a PhD in Antitrust Law, or a second LLM there (Either Tax Law/Fiscaalrecht after I learn dutch or on Antitrust Law) Which one would be more feasible?

Thank you very much in advance

Hi there,

I’m currently an LLM student in the Netherlands (did my LLB here too). 



I would say if you’re not planning to stay in academia it wouldn’t make sense to pursue a PhD. PhD’s here (and I think elsewhere) are more intended for people interested in an academic career. Admissions is also highly selective and competitive. Not to mention it’s a four year (or longer) commitment.

If you’re planning on focusing on your company and working here as a data privacy and antitrust consultant, I would say an LLM is the best (and more feasible) option! 

All the best!
