Thanks for this topic !

May you guys shed some light on my concern ? I thought that Cam accepts up to 3 reference letter (in its website), but then the Application Form only allows 2 ? Can my third referee post an additional letter to Cam ?

Also, I graduated in June 2013 and have been working in a law firm since then. I am aware that the current employer can do a reference letter. But I prefer my 2nd letter to be from an official at a local State authority - whom I have worked more closely with since my second year at law school ! So should the 2nd letter come from my current employer or the official ?

Hi all!

I am thinking of applying! I am just not really sure about whether I would get in or not. I passed my LL.B with 8.05/10 last year and am currently working as a legal counsel.
Have had a couple of internships for approx.1 year and a half with two different international organisations.
I am contacting my mentor from school to get the margin in my class rank but I am pretty sure Cambridge wants someone with at least 9/10. #doubting
Do you think I still have the chance?

Funny that you can still be bothered to be here trolling everyone so many years after supposedly completing your llm. Says a lot about yourself.

Hi,

Hi,

I'm an applicant from India and I've done my high school and university education in English. I spoke with the graduate admissions and they refused to waive the English proficiency test requirement, but said they would accept TOEFL/IELTS. I think it should be fine if you submit TOEFL scores over IELTS.

Hi, I have few question concerning my application so if anyone could answer,it would help me a lot.

1. I am a student of Master 1 of business law in France (Strasbourg), Bachelor degree with honours (Licence avec mention assez bien), a year of Erasmus at Leiden University, with 5 experiences of internships, speaking 3 languages fluently. My problem is that I don't really know to asses my chances to get admit to LLM at Cambridge. If is a disadvantage to be only in 4th year of my studies. (if there is someone with experiences with French system and with the same concern, it would be perfect! )
2. I think I am able to obtain not only references from my professors but also from my ex-employer (partner or advocates in the international law firm, or a MP). Do only academic references count, or could I get it from mt ex-employers too?
3. Concerning the transcripts of records, how does it work if it is in a foreign language (French in my case)? is it sufficient to print it out from the internet or I have to ask it from the university administration?

Thank you very much a and good luck with your applications!

I personally sent in 2 academic referees and I graduated around the same time you did. And as regards work Vs academic referees, this is what is written on the website:
"In selecting referees, remember that academic references from someone who knows you well and can describe your special attributes are likely to be the most useful. Letters of recommendation which explain how you performed in your academic studies in comparison to your peers are also of particular value to the LLM Admissions Committee." I hope that answers your question as regards referees. Moreover it is written "A minimum of 2 and a maximum of 3 ACADEMIC references (letters of recommendation)"

You should read the instructions and not just assume that anything can be sent as a reference. It expressly states that "academic" references.

From my little experience, many people get rejected for not reading simple rules that are readily available. READ, READ, READ.

I also think that you do not need 3 referees. 2 referees are able to tell your story and academic achievements sufficiently.

1. No one on LLM Guide qualifies as an admission expert. To that end, this is not the place to get advise on your chances of admission. If you want to go to Cambridge, then simply apply. The Graduate Admissions will then assess your application and see whether to admit you or not. There is no harm in trying your luck so please apply.

2. The website says ACADEMIC referees.

3. If it is in a foreign language, obtain a translation.
