MLitt in Law: University of Cambridge (Official Thread) (2020-21)


Geckmon
Hello!

To the people of the LL.M Guide wishing to undertake the MLitt next academic year, I have a proposition:

Due to (a) the overall lack of activity anywhere online; (b) the fact that we are (likely) a small cohort of applicants compared with the other postgraduate programmes at Cambridge; and, (c) there is little guidance online as to when/how offers or rejections are released, I think that creating a space where we can discuss our individual application process, concerns, and general information is a good idea.

Not only will this help future MLitt applicants (so that they do not have to guess timescales like we do, ect.), but it provides some degree of support for ourselves. We know, by engaging with this page, that there are at least some other people embarking on the same (tedious) journey that we are going through.

So... if there are survivors of this process - whether past or present - out there, please feel as though you can contribute to this discussion. Moreover, please ensure that you share information in an informal and respectful manner so as to make everybody feel comfortable.

I look forward to speaking with everyone and hearing your experiences!

My status:
Still "under review by the department" (as of around 16th Jan).

All the best,
Geckmon

Hi! Thanks for the initiative :) I’m an applicant too. Quite clueless and not optimistic about the process, but that’s a part of the charm of it I guess haha. No previous master’s degree. My status changed to “under review” on 20 December.

You're not doing too badly if your application is still under consideration! At least we have not been rejected so far :)

What are you looking to research if you don't mind me asking?
