LSE LL.M

sorry, can't help on that as English is my first language.

Have just realised that I have some sort of inbuilt gender prejudice and am assuming that everyone is male unless there's an obvious indicator to the contrary. that's weird.

Understandable impression, though wrong!
A feather sounds feminine to me...anyway, I don't mind being called a "guy" legalalien!

About the ielts I just informed my scores and the test report form on the appropriate fields.

I am worried because in the list of my supporting documents there were just the douments I sent by post (reference letters and the transcript of one course I am currently taking). But the documents I sent online (personal statment, degree transcript etc) were not listed.

However I didnt get any message about any outstanding document.

The same happened to you guys?


I am a girl too :-)

Judy, so what does your "Status of Application" say? And how about "Documentation"? For me with the latter it's a couple of "passed check", "copy received" for the transcript and then two additional items. No mention of the personal statement and the degree certificate, either.

Hi Ryker

mine say the same, other than my second reference which is listed as outstanding even though they confirmed that they had it when I called them two days ago. I am sulking.

I think you guys will be fine as long as your fourth email didn't note any documents as outstanding. They may not count the personal statement as a separate item, given that it doesn't need to be an attachment (it can be entered directly into the application form).

Thanks for the response, they've changed my staus into "under consideration", as well, though I've submitted all of my documents at once. So I guess my worries can now concentrate only on the outcome.

I am still sulking. They confirmed they had my second reference last week, and they have still not processed it; I telephoned yesterday, they said they hadn't downloaded it until 10 November (when I made my first phone call) and it should be processed yesterday.

I HATE waiting. Particularly when I know that they're not even considering my application yet ;(

Hmm - just rang again and they think a mistake was probably made in processing my second reference, the nice lady I spoke to this morning is going to print it off and add it to the file....

Which just goes to show that there is a point in chasing things up if nothing seems to be happening. I am not very impressed at having to make three calls, though.

Hi everyone,

Can someone please tell me if it is more likely for a student to be admitted into a top UK LL.M course if they have 1 or 2 years work experience under their belt?

I'm just unsure whether I should apply now, having just graduated, or wait until I have some experience?

Any help would be fantastic.

I am doing my LL.M. at a U.K. university, and I can tell you that there are quite a few people who have worked for a while before starting their LL.M. However, there is also a (surprisingly) large number of students who have come into the programme straight from law school. So, in my opinion, if you think that you have a reasonable chance of getting in, I would say go ahead and apply! Coming straight out of school should not, per se, be a disadvantage for you.

Thanks for the advice, really appreciate it. I guess there is no harm in applying now and seeing how I go.

This may be a stupid question, but should the personal statement be signed, i.e. "yours sincerely, [insert applicant's name]"?

Hi strawfoot,

Yes, I put something like that at the end of my personal statement, and then signed it.

I actually just made my personal statement to LSE a long covering letter, addressed, signed and all. Obviously, the content is the most important.
