Cambridge application 2018/2019


Hey guys, I'm looking to apply for the LLM at Cambridge this year and was looking to gauge my chances of getting an offer and see how I could possibly improve them.

I have just graduated with a first class from the University of Salford. I am now beginning my BPTC in september and would want to start my LLM straight after that. As I will be applying for the international law LLM I will make sure that my references are from relevant lecturers. I have great rapport with my international law lecturer and got a first in the module. I also got firsts in other closely tied subjects such as Human Rights law and EU law (as well as public law which becomes somewhat relevant I hope). Again, I am on great terms with all of these lecturers too so that means I can get good references. I am also currently writing a journal for publication on a topic pertaining to the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations. So basically if I can get that published within time, would that increase my chances significantly? and what sort of a chance would I have without the publication?

I am also a contributor to leading English dailies in my home country of Pakistan and have blogs and columns published. These are mostly socio-political in nature however, so I'm not sure if the mention would boost my application. Any guidance on this would also be much appreciated! Thanks in advance for taking the time out to reply :)

1. Cambridge does not admit to specialised LLMs. You are either admitted to the LLM or to the BCL. You can however choose to specialise in a field of law while studying. Your application form will not ask you for a specialism because again, Cambridge does not admit to specialisms but to the general LLM.

2. Cambridge is looking for a first class, very good recommendations and a good CV. If you can show these, you are highly likely to get admitted. You should feel free to include all your achievements in your CV and some in your personal statement to give them an idea of who you are.

Hey, thanks for correcting me on the nature of the course. Besides that, do you think I have a fair chance? Is it worth applying?
