LLM/ MSc. Law and Finance


Shimanto

Hi everyone!

I'm considering to apply for an LLM/ MSc. Law and Finance programmes in UK. But I'm a bit confused about choosing the right programme and university.

To give a brief background, I graduated from University of London with 2:2 and completed my BPTC from Cardiff University with competent marks (69% on average). I then came back to Bangladesh and joined in a top tier corporate law firm. I have a solid experience of 3 years in project finance, corporate finance and M&A and closed some major deals in the jurisdiction of Bangladesh. I had opportunities to provide legal advisory services to multiple MNCs and foreign clients and even worked in projects on the instructions of BM, A&O, NRF, S&M and a few other firms.

I have bold interests in projects and infrastructure finance and would like to build my career focusing on that practice area. I have intentions to get a Training Contract in UK firms which have such practices.

I understand that my undergrad results are not very impressive and this is why I would like to go for an LLM. My primary choice is MSc in Law and Finance at Oxford. I am not sure if this is a right choice for me considering my background or I am being too ambitious. Would really appreciate your valuable advices on the chances of getting an offer from suitable universities. I would like to focus on finance and M&A.

Thanks in advance.
