Accepted at LSE! Took a long time, but worth it.

Anybody knows what are the requirements for the final dissertation at LSE? I would like to come back in June after the examination period (I would article right away). Is this possible?



What do you mean?!I don't understand...


Sorry - I wasn't clear.

I have finished both law school and bar school (we have to take a 6 or 12 month class in Québec to have the right to write the bar exams).

Before we are admitted to the bar, we have to (1) take the classes, (2) successfully write all bar exams and (3) article for six months.

In order to be admitted to the bar in 2016, I would like to go back to Canada to article in the end of june (so I would be admitted in the end of december 2016). Is this possible at LSE? I know that the classes end in june, and that we have around a two months after to write our dissertation and submit it. Can I do that at home, or do I have to stay in London? Would save a lot of $$$ and would be good to be bar 2016 instead of bar 2017.

Thanks!

Hey guys,

Has anyone had any trouble paying the fees for UCL application?

My bank says it's ok; UCL said it isn't, but when I sent them an email, they did not reply.

Although all my documents have already been sent, I have no access to Portico, so I imagine my application is stuck. Any help?

Thanks!

I don't have any news from UCL. Don't know if it's normal or if I should start worrying.

Hi Kiwiii,

It looks like they are updating Portico every Tuesday.

When did you apply?

Hey tigers,

I am a student of the Master programme at the Comenius University, Faculty of Law in Bratislava, Slovak Republic (I am clearly convinced that probably none of you have had ever heard about it, so pray do not worry about that) and as it happens, I am planning to apply for an LLM at either LSE or Cambridge.

I´ve graduated with a 1:1 (or a pretty similar equivalent) in Law (LLB) and I am expecting to get the same degree at the end of my Master Studies. Given the rankings of our University a surprising number of students have previously been offered a place at the Oxbridge and Ivy League schools as well. I did my Erasmus at the University of Vienna,too, therefore my command of English and German is quite on equal terms along with some French to add to the mix.
My personal working experience includes a four-month internship at Allen & Overy Slovakia and a six-month paralegal job at an international law firm with its main seat in Germany. I did work during this summer as a student clerk at a District Court, too.
I am also planning to do an internship at a rather important governmental agency and have undertook several extracurricular activities, such as participating in a one - year education programme in politics and public Service, qualified as a runner - up at the National Negotiation Competition and worked as a deputy editor with the university magazine. I am still expecting to improve my credentials a little bit further for I still have some time. Thanks for the feedback and the best of luck in your future kids !

Hi! I have been accepted to LSE and UCL. Does anyone know when we hear back about scholarships? The LSE website seems to say end of July which seems ages away. I was hoping to make a decision soon but hard to without knowing about scholarships. Thanks

Hi guys!!
sorry if this topic is not pertinent to the application process but I'd like to hear your opinions about it! I've been accepted by both LSE and UCL, still waiting for King's answer and my focus is about international criminal law, human rights and public international law in general. I'd love to have your opinions about :
-- the teaching level,
-- extracurricular opportunities (such as sponsored internships, projects abroad, experiences in the legal world of London etc.)
-- career network (I would like to become a barrister)
-- how the different law schools are perceived by the legal working environment (and in particular for a career at the bar)

I still don't know which one should I accept! Any help is more than welcome!!

I'm in the same situation so also interested to know. At the moment I'm leaning towards accepting LSE.

I'm from Italy, I'm thinking about a career as a barrister, in the field of international criminal law, human rights, refugee law and similar...I would like to stay in London at least for the first years, but I'd also like to leave the international organizations door open

Well criminal international law is a very very small field, so you should probably look into the professors in each university. The likes of Philippe Sand et. al. at UCL will probably be more helpful than the LSE staff.

But I think that outside the UK, LSE has a much stronger reputation than UCL which could help you with finding jobs in the IOs and NGOs.

I've been accepted in both myself and have similar interests. So I've given these things some thoughts.

QM is the best in Intellectual Property Law, and one of the best in Arbitration and Commercial Law.

UCL, Kings and LSE are known for International Law, I guess.

Lawgirl, I received an e-mail yesterday from UCL confirming my payment. However, my payment was already made 7 weeks ago, my referees submitted their letters at the same moment, and on portico it stated that my application is complete, since 7 weeks now.

Did the same happen to you? How long did you have to wait?

Congrats anyways ! :)
