After Ox Mjur, job oppotunity


namrepus

I know three types of people.

1. Ox Mjur--->US JD
2. Ox Mjur--->Ox Mphil/Dphil
3. Ox Mjur--->Work

Especially for No 3, I would like to discuss about job oppotunity in the UK. Is it possible to find a job after Mjur in the UK? It does not qualify you to be a solicitor/ barristor but what are other possible jobs after this study?

Not sure about getting a job in the UK. But magic circle law firms are keen to hire mjurs (esp the Germans and Chinese) to work in their German or PRC/HK offices. If you are aiming for the UK, you have to compete with the native British, and those foreigners who already have a common law degree. After all, when you work in law firms in UK, you are likely to advise on English or common law. And a civil law degree does not equip you to do that.

I know both Cam LLM and Ox Mjur do not qualify you to practice in the UK.

Are they equally valuable then? For a British firm, If a civil law background goes back to his/her homecountry to work for the Office of that British firm, which one is better? Or simply the same?

4. Ox Mjur---->US LLM
5. Ox Mjur---->UK LLB

This is really good post but I actually wish to practice in my home country. Just want to see if there may be any chance to work for a year or so. Mjur degree ipso facto does not
push me further in my future career hunting in my home country, but some good experience does.

LPC is good, but Ox does not offer it. Also it is too long before you are qualified. I don't see any reason to study for 2 years for a GDL first and then LPC. It is really harsh to get a TC also. And the two years TC is low in salary (Can't help me to make up the hole I dig in this study. Hee hee). I think if I want to practice in a new juristiction, US is the best choice(Highly reputable, fast).

But I love Oxford. It is my dream since I was little. I think it is a mission I must finish. (Pls, don't laugh)

The two years MA sounds great. I heard of it several years ago. But I didn't see it on Oxford website this year. Are you sure Oxford offer it? MA-LPC-TC. Still tough though. I think that degree is more valuable for me even I don't wish to practice in the UK. Anyway I didn't apply to it. Is it possible to transfer to that if it still exists?

Oxford definitely still offer the 2 year BA. If you go to the law faculty website andclick on the option, under postgraduate study, for something like 'law for those with degrees in other subjects'.

They only admiot a few a year but effectively you mis out the initial year and are limited in which options you can pick in order to make it a Qualifying Law Degree - i.e. enabling to practice once done LPC. You apply through UCAS (undergraduate programme) in the Oct and interviewed as normal.

It may be possible to transfer but I just have no idea?

Either way, definitely go to Oxford for the year!

I know people doing the 2 year BA at Oxford. Cause it's a cheeky way to get around a year of law studies, qualifying you to do the LPC, as opposed to the BCL or Ox Mjur, which do not qualify you to do the LPC, competition is hard. One of the people reading the senior status LLB has first class degrees from Princeton and Cambridge... the rest have similar, out of this world qualifications.

But, then again, it does not hurt to apply, in fact, I recommend it.

Good luck,

A

Thank you ! I have found it!
It is called 2-year senior BA or something.
I will go to Oxford this year !

What other jobs rather than practising lawyer can LLM/Mjur graduates find in the UK to work for just a year's time or so?
