LSE LL.M

@ Morticia

I've the same condition in my offer. What test are you going to do? Toefl or IELTS? Do you have any experiences how difficult it is to achieve the required level? I'm very anxious about the language condition, since I don't think that I will achieve such a high result.

Do you know if it is possible to do any pre-sessional language course instead of the Toefl or IELTS exam?

Thanks a lot and congrats for the offer!!

Regards

Thanks for the congrats... same for you!!

I took IELTS and it was ok although I have to admit that the written part is not that easy. The required level (7) is quite high and the first task is meant for MBA students and not Law grad. The speaking section on the contrary is very easy and I am sure u can pull your overall up till 7.5 with its help. I took TOEFL many years ago and comparing both I would prefer IELTS as I believe your english is really tested (not your test techniques, as they do in TOEFL) so my humble advice would be to take IELTS but practice the writing section, mainly task 1, before taking the test..

Good luck and feel free to contact me for more info

Thanks a lot! You're great! I didn't know almost nothing about IELTS.

Yes, many people say that Toefl tests rather the tecchnique than your actual English skills. And for that reason some reccomend to take the Toefl, because you can better prepare for it...

Thanks, should I have any further questions, I'll contact you.

Hi! I took my TOEFL test about four months ago. I guess it is the kind of exam where if you do some practice tests before and learn how to organize your time, it is not very difficult. I would say the level of what is required is somewhat similar to FCE. The preparation took me app. two weeks, I have never lived in an English speaking country or had English as my language of instruction and I did pretty well. So, you really should not be worried about it!

Thank you very much!!! That helps a lot and reassures me. I too have heard that someone can prepare pretty good the exam structure an perform well. But in particular it is very helpful for me to know that you never lived in an English speaking country neither received instruction in English, since my situation is the same!!

Thanks a lot again!!

Hi! First of all congratulations to everybody who has already received their offers, and patience and good luck to those who are still waiting.

I've got my bit of luck and received an LSE offer on Jan 15. Similarly to legalalien there was a lot of uncool self-congratulatory dancing on the day and plenty of I-can't-believe-it exclamations:)))

I was wondering if anybody here was planning to read corporate/commercial law? I am definitely heading for that.

gayatrikmr (and anyone else looking at accommodation) - happy to advise on how easy it will be to get from different places to LSE. Public transport in London is quite expensive (but on the other hand there is a hefty premium for accommodation in Zone 1 (inner London).


Hey legalalien,

I got a conditional offer from LSE, condition being that I should complete my final year with a first class honours... Really kicked about that. I was wondering, would you reccomend resident halls or private housing as accomodation in London? Your guidance will be greatly appreciated!
Cheers,
D.

@films - yes, me. Exact content to be determined, i have some fairly specific ideas about what courses I want to take but it depends what is available this year and next.

Re hostels vs private accommodation - I'm probably not the best person to ask as it's a long time since I was at university last, and I'm sufficiently old that I can't even imagine living in a hostel!

@ legalalien & gayatrikmr - great, i'll see you in one of the classes I suppose. I've also got a list of courses I wish to take and hope they'll have them next year.

Now the question is how to finance the whole thing. My family's last long-term London experience left a big gap in our budget...)))

Hello everybody,
I am very happy to join the fleet heading to lse ,though i joined this discussion forum lately. I have few queries to be answered which will help me to take proper decision.

i have received conditional offer online ( to pass in 62% overall percentage) from LSE. I had applied for intellectual property rights.
pls answer to my queries:

1) I have personal interest to study ipr n have taken post graduation diploma course in india for ipr. I came to know recently, there are few professors for ipr when considered to other courses provided by LSE. I am worried , whether LSE is a better place for LL.M in ipr?
2) what are the career prospects after doing LL.M in ipr from LSE.
3) Am in final year of law now. If LSE is not all that great for ipr, should i postpone to next and apply for good universities in USA for ipr and i don want to join queen marry university.?

Hoping for the best

Hey there guys!

I got an unconditional offer on Jan. 20. However, since I'm still waiting to hear from some American schools (HLS, YLS, CLS, NYU and UChicago), I'm still not sure I'll be in London next fall. Anyway, I plan to concentrate on banking law and financial regulation wherever I end up enrolling in.

Cheers!
