LSE - The New Executive LLM


What are your thoughts on the new Executive LLM by LSE? It takes 4 years and costs around GBP 25,000 and requires at least 3 years work experience. It is aimed at experienced busy lawyers/regulators. It seems quite pricey compared to other LLMs - must be the most expensive LLM in the UK. But I don't think the expectation is that law firms would pay for their lawyers to do an LLM in the same way some companies pay for an MBA. What kind of applicants do you think it will attract?

Hi!
I just saw this programme today on LSE website. I'm interested in public international law, but at the moment i can't leave my Job, so i'm considering to apply for executive llm or distance learning llm programmes. The executive llm at LSE is a good option as you have 4 years to finish the master and it offers modules on the subject i'm interested in. The problem? GBP 25000, i think it's a lot of money and maybe i overlook to it but i didn't find on the website scholarships that we can apply for, just that this programme is not part of the Graduate Support Scheme. Since it's a new programme, maybe they have not considered yet the issue of funding. As you have mentioned, i don't think they expect our employer to pay for our studies.
