LLM


anjum

Hey guys i got into UCL for my LLM course starting later on this year, but have not decided whether or not 2 do a general llm course as opposed 2 one specialising in a particular area. alot of people have told me its not really worth doing an llm unless u are going 2 specialise. is that true or not? does it really make a difference? i mean of course it displays knowledge in a certain area of law, which is great if u want 2 go into a firm specialising in that area of law. but if your uncertain as to what area of law u want 2 specialise in like me - is it such a big problem?

any help would b great
cheers

I am not going to answer your question directly, rather, look at a another view. A question I have about your own question is "what do you hope to get out of your LL.M"? If you don't want to specialise because you don't KNOW where to sepecialise, then have you considered seeking employment for a few years and gaining experience of legal practice first?

Then when you choose your LL.M you may be able to put it "better" use.

I ´d always suggest to choose a specialized LL.M. over a general LL.M. This way you´ll have a special subject written on your certificate (or whatever we will get afterwards, lol). And the subject you choose for your Master isn´t automatically the field you will (have to) work in afterwards too. Choose what you are interested in for now... This will guide you into the right direction.
