LL.M. does it worth it with Brexit


Dear,

I was thinking one bug thing...what is the value of an LL.M. now as the UK quitted the UE.

Many went there to study for EU/UK related subjects and now seems they will be alone.

What do you think about it? how it would be useful for us?

From my point of view, while the value of the LLM will remain unchanged, the price will probably go up (standard overseas fees might be applicable in the future).

EU related subjects -> the LLM programs will probably shift their focus to the then applicable UK/EU-legal regime. You will probably see a shift in the staff teaching those matters as well (less lecturers with international background)

UK related subjects: Probably no change whatsoever, as long as the respective markets do not collapse as a result of the Brexit (e. g. English Marine Insurance market) and I not see that written on the horizon.

I don't see much change in the absolute "value" of the degree. You can study European or EU Law and still have a very valuable degree.

Even if you are working in the UK - there's going to be a lot of legal expertise needed in the coming years: disentangling from the EU and developing new economic relationships, etc. - these things are going to take lots of lawyers and other legal experts.

And I'm sure all the UK law schools offering LLMs in European Law - KCL, QMUL, LSE, etc. will be adapting their curriculum to reflect the new realities.

Of course, if you're studying other topics besides EU law, there's not going to be much change, if any.
