Multiple LLMs


LLMLORD
Hello all,

I have a question for you LLM-fans. Would any of you consider doing multiple LLMs?

My dilemma is this: I have a place at the College of Europe to do an LLM in EC Law, but to be honest I'm not sure if I want to dedicate my life to this. It is interesting, and I'm sure it will be a stimulating programme, but I'm afraid I might end up specialising too early. The clincher for me was that I was given a full scholarship - so the LLM is essentially for free. How could I turn it down?

Next year though, I'd consider doing another masters. Are there many people who have two LLMs after their names? Does it look really weird? Should I do BCL instead to give myself a bit of "diversity"? (Joking.)

There are several programmes on this site that I find very interesting. Would already having an LLM work in my favour in the applications process or would it work against me?

Thanks in advance if you lend me a hand!

Your friend,

I know that many lawyers consider completing a second LL.M later in their career, but I can't see any immediate benefit of two LL.Ms back-to-back. You could consider moving into a PhD (1+3 study, or 1+2 if you can find it), it's only a year more and would be significantly more impressive than two LL.Ms.

I've seen the 1+3 and 1+2 equations for PhD programs.

Would you be so kind as to explain what those numbers ,ean?

I have a friend who graduated with me last year at Cambridge (LL.M. Class of 2005). She was looking into applying for another LL.M., this time in the US, and some Universities are telling her that she will not be considered, unless she applied for a Ph.D.

I guess each institution has its own policy about that.
