A good year?


studyv

hi,

I just finished law school in my home country, and I wan't to do an LLM.

I am not sure at which university I should applay. I looked up the hole websites of the universitys etc.

As I alredy have a good job offer from a big law firm, my only two relevent goals are to improve my english skills (sorry for my spelling mistakes), and to gain international experience.

I don't want to sit the hole day in the lybary (I alredy did this in my home country), I am around the top 15 - 20 % im my class.

Is it normal that people also fail in the LLM programe?

I just want to have a good year, party hard ( so the nightlife should be good), meet a lot of new people and want to live on campus, and get a degree (with not studying more than 20 hours a week)

My budget is 20.000 Euro for the hole year (so I would like to stay away from London!)

Do you have any advice to which universitys I should applay?

Yea it has to be a british one, because law firms wants to se that you did the LLM in a English Speeking country, and because I am an european student, the UK would be the cheapest option for me.

Edinburgh.
Great uni and it's party central over here. Loads of students around and if this year's batch is anything to go by then LLMers will party with the best of them.
Although the money might be a bit tight - even though fees are relatively low at 5100, you'll be hard pressed to find a pint for under 3 pounds and other things generally follow suit. It's doable though.

Nearly every Law School in the UK should be fine for you.

It depends on your requirements. London is very expensive but offers more cultural activities. Midland towns are in general a little bit boring. Scotland has lots of nice landscape (if you appreciate outdoor activities) but is not the best place for party and social activities (especially in the summer).

Thank you for your replies!

how likely is it to fail in a llm programe if you study like 20 hours a week by you own? (or do you have to be very stupid to not pass?)

Is their a difference between the universitys (I mean beside from Oxbridge and the LSE), or better is any University known as hard to pass?

I think you cannot make a prediction about a university in general.

It will depend on your particular lecturer if he is strict or generous and also on your courses, some require a high workload others not, some require previous knowledge others not. Some programms have exams - others might not have exams and only essays.

But to be honest - you should not be so anxious about failing. The courses are usually designed for international students from various legal backgrounds and therefore cannot be that strict as in domestic issues.
