Hello LLM Guide community,
I remained in between both very exciting choices since I got two prestigious offers from the programs I'd like to study. I'd like to hear your valuable thoughts.
Firstly; I am admitted to the University of Bristol. In my opinion, the university has a very good reputation, living in the UK is very appealing. However; I don't have much opinion on job prospects in the financial sector for a non-EU lawyer. Also, I am not very pleased with the course curriculum of the program.
The second choice is the Institute of Law and Finance, Frankfurt. The program is very demanding and has a variety of specific courses in this area. Also, it allows law students to learn finance thorough courses like corporate accounting, macroeconomics, financial markets. Besides, there is a mandatory internship that students can take advantage of huge network of the ILF. However, the program is in Germany; although Frankfurt is a financial hub and has a developed job market, I have doubts to find a job after graduation as a non-german speaker.
I financially secured both of the programs and living expenses. Any insight would be very helpful. Thanks a lot.
