Cambridge LLM 2016 - 2017 Applicants


Does the CV need to have A-level and O-level grades?

It seems a bit odd. Maybe when you apply for an LLB but for a Master? Certainly not your O-levels. I guess your degree is of more importance.

Any other UK students applying?

It seems the LLM is largely international students. Out of curiosity, approximately how many students on the LLM took their LLB at a UK university?


I am a UK student :)

Pembroke as my 1st choice and Clare as my 2nd... which I am now regretting as it's very unlikely I'll get Clare as a second choice...

What about others ?

The Oxbridge LLM and BCL are much less international than the US LLM programs. Had I gone to either of them I am told from someone attending this year that 10-15%% of the class would be home countries and 30-50% would be commonwealth.

Thanks for this!

And yeah, I'm also a UK applicant in the sense that I did my LL.B at a UK university.

I don't know how I'll survive until March though...

Out of interest - what are your referees putting for your class rank? Top 1%, 5%, 10% or 25%?


Top 1%.


This guy is a fool who's been trying for years to give the impression that the Cambridge LLM is god's gift to lawyers and exaggerate the selection criteria.

It's not.

It's a great LL.M. program but so are many others. The sad part is that it's a poor second cousin to Oxford's BCL (vastly more prestigious) and the 'selectivity' is ridiculous. Anyone with a 2.1 and decent referees will get an offer. Nearly three-quarters of the original LLM offers are turned down, usually for Oxford. Virtually everybody in the class are oxford and ivy (not cornell though) rejects.

A good comparison would be to say Cambridge is the NYU of England - without the Hauser scholarships.

I had a first and did get an offer but I do know plenty of people with 2.1s who did. So don't worry too much - a 2.1 can most assuredly get you into Cambridge. Whether it's worth going to is a different matter

Please tell us the names of your alleged 2:1 friends who got an offer.

Until then: presumed to be false.

Been there. Seen it.
