Cambridge LLM 2017 - 2018 Applicants


aiges

I didn't write anything for this section. Instead, I uploaded my CV and a list of publications. So, what did you write there?

@Vari57: I think your application was within the deadline. I sent in all my documents before November 15th and so did my referees, and my status is the same. I assume it won't change until February or March when Cambridge is actually considering the applications.

The website says that offers will be made 'by' 15 March. Are they ever made earlier than the date stipulated?

I was reading posts from the last year's discussion. It appears that some people received answers starting from mid-February.

Hi,

While Graduate website says that you may submit a referee from your employer if you have not recently attended college, I was wondering what Cambridge looks at as 'recent'. Would it be prudent to submit one academic reference and one professional reference after having worked for 3 years post undergrad?

Hey everyone :)

Does anyone remember for sure how many characters we were allowed to write for the "Additional information" section?
Now I am looking at my pdf application form, and it says 999/1500, but I remember that there was a 1000-character limit. Is there a mistake on my application form, or was the limit really 1500 characters?

Thanks :)


Hi,

I had a similar problem and I (perhaps annoyingly) wrote to Cambridge about this just after I'd submitted my application. It would be a shame not to use the space.

The limit is 1000. They said this was a technical mishap. I suspect the limit used to be different but changed. I reckon we'll all be in a similar position of having filled up 999/1500 characters :-).

Happy new year everyone!

So, another question to discuss: why did you guys apply to Cambridge? What are your ambitions for the future? Just curious! :)


Hey,

I was just really interested in the modules on offer - especially the 'angle' taken. For instance, many of the courses - while covering the 'black-letter' of the law to a superb degree - also sought to situate it within a broader context, for instance by looking at the history of the development of WTO Law.

I found this approach appealing, mainly because I already have a training contract for a Magic Circle firm and so don't need the degree to get a job. To that end, while I would take majority corporate/European/international law modules, I am looking t wade my feet a little beyond the black-letter - while obviously going over it extensively as well.

As to ambitions for the future, well as stated I will be taking up the training contract I secured earlier this year..


Thx for the reaction. Happy to hear you've got a TC secured!

I want to head for the Bar but I haven't done much mooting (partly because I had to drop out of some competitions due to circumstances out of my control and partly because I think that, at this stage, the LLB coursework is way more important than mooting) and I haven't yet done a mini-pupillage which kind of sucks for a final year. I wasn't sure about what I was going to do and where (in terms of countries) and I am reluctant to give the Bar a try without an Oxbridge degree. Here's hoping I will have an opportunity to get one.

I have the same thing in terms of motivation apart from what I already indicated. I really wanted to do the modules they offer so I applied. I wonder if there are many environmental-leaning applicants.

Congratulations on the progress of the application :)

Thanks! Your link states, that:

"Degree committees

It may take up to seven days from Departmental approval for your application to be considered by the Degree Committee.

Board of Graduate Studies

It may take up to seven days from Degree Committee approval for your application to be considered by the Board of Graduate Studies.

The Graduate Admissions Office makes the official offer of admission to the applicant, by email."

However, this doesn't add up with the application process from the previous years (if you look at the Cambridge LLM-group from last year or the year before that). Even though I would hope so, I don't think we are so lucky to get a respons before late February to mid March.
