Did you check out Frankfurt ILF? They offer Scholarships for students from Eastern Europe (Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, not for students from CIS countries though...).

personally, i would go for queens mary because its part of the university of london - which is prestigious internationally. Manchester is also a very good school, but less reputable, relatively.

No! Just look at their website (which is entirely im English, too):

"The institute offers a one-year post-graduate program leading to a Master of Laws (LL.M., Finance) degree conferred by the Goethe-Universität, the only program of its kind in Germany to focus on law and finance. Its curriculum consists of lectures, seminars, colloquia and guest lectures on German and European company law, corporate finance, capital markets law and financial services law. The program is aimed at talented graduates of Law, Business and Economics faculties with professional experience, as well as outstanding graduates in these subjects who have just received their degree. All courses are taught in English."

Who is he/she?


Prof. Lorne D. Crerar, Harper McLeod LLP (Glasgow)

Very good teacher, but just too much students this year ... It wasn't as good as I've thought it would be.

Besides that his lecture is only part of either the general or the Commercial Law LLM. There is no specific LLM program for Banking at the University of Glasgow.

Cheers

Choose QM or SOAS cos then (under the inter-collegiate system) you will be able to take one of the most popular Banking courses in England taught at UCL, i.e., Legal aspects of International Finance. It is taught by Prof Graham Penn, Partner at a City Law Firm - Sidley, Austin & Woods LLP and Dr. Philip Rawlings of UCL. Because an academic and a practictioner are respectively involved in teaching the course, it is approached both from theoretical and practical perspectives.

Hi!
I have just finished my LLM in Banking and Financial Law in Boston Univesity in the USA. I think you should try to apply there. I have learned so many things.
Do not hesitate to ask me any questions about the program.

Hello, yes, actually, I've got plenty of questions about this programm: what did you do before applying there, and how old were you? I mean, what did you study, did you have profesionnal experience....
And, now, with that LLM, is that possible to find some jobs opportunities in the US?
I know, those questions seem a little bit indiscret, but I am really lost: so, I would like to apply in 2 years, when I will be 22 years old, I will have a double diploma: A Master in Science and Management from my business school in France, and a Master in private law and tax law from the University Paris I- Panthéon-Sorbonne in Paris.
So, do you think I will have good chances to be accepted if I applied there?
And before ending that extremely long post, congratulations for having being accepted in such an outstanding LLM and good luck for your future career and life...
Thanks in advance for paying attention
Best regards

Wady,

My academic profile might be somewhat similar to yours (civil law and exclusively french education). I have a Licence en Droit from the Universite Saint Joseph, a Maitrise en Droit international prive from the same school and then a DEA in Banking and Financial law from Paris II Pantheon-Assas. I have been admitted to the BU banking and financial LLM '07-'08.
My impression following the phone interview is that they do emphasize on work experience. They asked a lot about mine and about my DEA thesis which is directly linked to my renowned employer (it's a long story...).

Chances of landing a job after LLM graduation seem dim, they tend to prefer american JD holders.

Now it's my turn to vent my concerns.

I have been admitted in BU as I said. The problem is that I have till march 1st to notify them of my final decision. This is such a short notice knowing that I applied to NYU, Columbia, Duke and Cornell and still haven't got word from them. I could make a deposit and accept the offer pending the others' response but the problem will be with my F1 visa which will be issued according to BU's I20 (along with other US administration paperwork). So I would have to switch my F1 visa if I later choose another law school. This won't be easy knowing that I'm in the hottest spot on earth : LEBANON, we have here a civil war coming real fast ... Completely cornered here. A word of advice anyone?

Guys please, please note that the intercollegiate LLM has now finished so you can't take modules from other colleges any more!

Hi, I just wanted to let you know that I turned down an offer from BU's Banking and Finacial Law LLM. They offered me an LLM. Scholar award with a grant so they will have that spot open for another applicant. Good luck to all of you!
