Hi everyone!

I am a law graduate and I'm thinking about having a LLM but I have never applied so far...
I was wondering which is the average profile accepted by LSE, just to understand if I could be considered a strong candidate.

Thanks so much and good luck to everybody! :)

I assume that all offer holders received an email from Mr.Baldwin yesterday. However, for those who has not received the offer yet should be acknowledged the minor changes on the programme structure. Therefore, I copy the email to post it in this thread.

"Congratulations on receiving an offer of admission to study for the LLM at LSE. Entry on to this programme is highly competitive and so these congratulations are well deserved. We look forward to meeting you later this year.

I would like to take this opportunity to inform you of some adjustments to the programme structure for 2013/14 that will enhance what is an already exciting LLM programme.

The changes are as follows:

· We currently offer a mix of half unit and full unit courses. From 2013/14 we will convert all courses to half unit courses. Breadth of subject teaching remains unchanged but will permit greater student choice and flexibility. For example a full unit, in becoming two half units will allow students to take either both or just one half unit course.



· We will introduce a new Legal Research and Writing Skills course that will give greater support to you in writing and researching your LLM dissertation, which we know from previous students is a much valued module. It will also provide you with research skills that will benefit you in your future career. We have offered this course previously as an option but are now pleased to incorporate it fully as a compulsory element in supporting the existing 10,000 word dissertation (the course is assessed by this dissertation on the topic of your choice).



From 2013/2014, all students will therefore take seven half units, plus the compulsory Legal Research and Writing Skills course.

· We are also introducing a new specialism in: 'Competition, Innovation and Trade'. All other specialisms currently listed on the Law Departments website will remain unchanged.


We are very pleased to be making these enhancements to the 2013/14 LLM programme and to be offering the additional choice and support that they provide. If you have any questions about the changes, please contact the Law Programmes Manager, Gillian Urquhart, by emailing g.urquhart@lse.ac.uk

Best wishes,"

Hi everyone,

I hold a conditional offer (my university still has to send a couple of certificates, but they should be on their way) from LSE, and also an unconditional offer from KG (while UCL is still silent, but I applied in january, so no wonder) .

Since LSE was my frist choice I guess I will end up attending their LLM, and I'lllook forward to meeting all you other offer holders :)

Just a curiosity, to have a general overview: have you all already chosen a specific subject for your LLM or there is someone, like me, who is still deciding?
(I work as a business lawyer, mainly corporate, M&A and business contracts, but I graduated in IP, so now I'm struggling between different qualifications!).

Thanks and good luck for those still waiting for an answer!

Hi Sylvia.

I'm probably going to take the labour law concentration, although I might just go general and choose mainly labour law related courses. Looking forward to meeting you next year!

As I have already mentioned, I will concentrate on criminology and criminal justice or Human rights. However, I doubt that we can select our designated courses. I have been told that the full list of courses will be announced by the end of June.

Looking forward to meet you guys and wish ll the best for those who are waiting the results.

Hey guys,

I've just received a conditionnal offer for the LL.M. Tax program at LSE.

Does someone knows if I can take the IELTS general training or do I have to take the Academic version?

I can't find any information on this matter ... It is precised that undergratuate have to take the Academic but there is no such precision for the law school graduate program ...

An answer by monday would be very helpful as I have to register for the test as soon as possible.

I believe it's the academic module. I took that one, and was accepted. Plus the difference between the two modules is not particularly huge, it just changes the typology of texts...

It does change things for me as their is no availability to register for the Academic test at the moment in France ...

Uhm, unlucky! But if you already hold a conditional offer I believe you can submit your IELTS results until you register, so you have time until October. Or are they all booked for the entire year? Otherwise have you tried TOEFL? It is accepted, too.
Anyway I'm skeptical about the general module of the IELTS test, I don't think it's sufficient...

I was wondering if by delaying acceptance of an unconditional offer, you decrease your chances for being considered for scholarships? I'm still waiting to hear back from one more school but maybe I should just accept, as I'm pretty sure LSE is where I will be going. I emailed LSE about this but haven't heard back. Does anyone happen to know? Thanks :)

British Council has opened IELTS sessions this morning so I finally managed to register for a session in Paris (22th June).

I guess I just have to work hard from now ...

Hi!
Has anyone who applied in mid February (completed the form) recieved an answer (positive or negative)? My friend is still waiting and she is going crazy... He waited for three weeks to recieve the "fourth e-mail" even though his references had been submitted within a week. Anyone knows what has been happening with the application system?

Hello,

I received my conditional offer from LSE on january, my condition is to send TOEFL/IELTS. I´ve been stuggling to achieve the marks needed, I am only 2 points to what they expect, but now I need to decide what to do. UCL also accepted me and I have sufficient IELTS scores to go there, but my fisrt choice has always been LSE... I therefore asked for an English waiver explaining that I studied all my primary and secondary studies in English. I don´t know if anyone knows on whether they accept this kind of request or should I just give up and go for my second option (UCL) :(
Thanxs.
PS: I don´t have time because all exams are booked till June and I need time to ask for my visa and complete documents....

The requirements state that you dont need a TOEFL.
