1) I will be starting with my LLM from LSE in september this year. Duration of the course is 1 year.
2) I wish to pursue a higher/another degree e.g. JD from Harvard or M.Phil from Cambridge or BCL/Mjur from Oxford immidiately after i complete my LLM.
3) For that i'll have to apply this year.
4) In case proof of my LLM is required by any of these places before i complete my degree from LSE, then will i be able to apply this year?

In short, i want to pursue another/higher degree from Oxford/Cambridge/Harvard immidiately after my LLM from LSE. Is it possible?

I'm not too sure of the modalities, but its definitely possible. People have pursued LLMs from two colleges in succession. I'm sure you'll be able to get a proof (that you're pursuing your LLM) from LSE. Once you're done with your course you can furnish the final marksheet/transcript/proof, much like we did for admissions after our undergrad course.
Also, I don't think it'll be new to Harvard, Oxford or Cambridge to see people wanting to study there after an LLM. So you can mail them and ask the procedure.

Deepeika,

I think you can apply this year so that you may start the second higher degree immediately after the LL.M. You will simply need to state the fact that you are currently enrolled in the LL.M program on your application. They will get that your LL.M qualification will not be available until the summer or so of the following year.

In any case, an LL.M is not a requirement for admission into another similarly ranked degree. I believe the usual requirement is a Bachelor's degree. So they will assess your application based primarily on your qualifications before that.

I am in a similar situation somewhat. I am now completing a post graduate program and I had applied to Cam for the LL.M starting this October. They only told me to let them know when my certification will be available, and then send evidence of its successful completion. I would assume they would give you similar conditions, as would the other institutions that you listed.

Hope I have helped & Thanks for rephrasing ;)

Thank you so much for the kind gesture.

This time i was really disappointed by the 'rejections' from Harvard/Ox/Cam.
I completed law from Delhi University(India) which is a reputed University of India. I had 61% aggregate; was among top 1% students of my batch; i already had a Post graduate degree in History wherein i was awarded Gold Medal; I did interships, moot courts, contested elections, hold the post of Scretary of my College, Organised various events.....still i couldn't make through any of these places.
In Delhi University, the marking scheme is different. We had only 8 First divisioners in our batch and students from other law colleges in India easily get an average of 70 or so.
May be this was lacking..........or may be when i applied, i was not working anywhere so i couldn't write much on my work experience. But as for now I am working under a Judge of the High Court of Delhi as a Law Researcher after i practiced for 4 months...But all this was lacking in my application.

you seem to have really good credentials. i'm from one of those Indian law schools you mentioned which give a lot of marks :)
As for LSE, I had a choice between NYU, LSE and Oxford. Went with Oxford, but LSE is a really good choice, especially because it enjoys a very good name in India. A lot of people were surprised when i thought of going to NYU over LSE (this was before the Oxford result). Also, the exposure in London should be great... with all the top law firms around you.

Deepeika, I think Camb states that they won't take a person who already has an LLM from another UK uni. I believe this is the same for Oxford and the other UK unis. But it is pretty common to have an LLM from the UK and another from the US.

I am thinking of applying for a higher or equivalent degree...

Frankly speaking its a dream to study in any of these 3 institutes and i want to fulfill this dream of mine in this life itself :)

hey guys
I just finished up my undergrad degree at an Irish University and have conditional offers for both Cambridge and Oxford, Darwin and St Anne's College respectively. My only problem is that the offer is conditional on getting a first so I won't know if I'm going until I get my results in June. I was just wondering if I can accept both college offers and then choose which university to go to after I get my results? i.e. at what point does it become irrevocable? I know the earlier you accept the more likely you are to get accommodation but as I just finished my exams I'm only getting a chance now to weigh up the options. Also I wouldn't base my decision entirely on which college I go to, I want to focus more on the courses on offer, but if anybody has any impressions of either of Darwin or St Annes feel free to let me know as it can only help my decision? thanks......

hey thanks a lot.....figure I'll try make a decision before I get the results then as there is no point in holding onto both when the place (though conditional) could probably go to another.

Wow! 14 weeks after getting my conditional offer by email, my Camsis account was finally updated yesterday with my offer conditions, I had almost given up hope of ever hearing from them. At least now I will know that the official package will come in the mail eventually. Of course at this point my account says currently searching for college membership, but the funny part is that I have know for over 10 weeks what college I will be a member of since I was informed that got a scholarship from my first choice college in mid-March. They seem to have an unbelievably strange and centralized admission process!

Hi! Did everyone on this forum have a first class degree or were some just hoping (or perhaps succesful) to get in with high 2:1s etc. Just wondered so I know how stiff the competition is. I have a very good first but from a new university.

Where I come from there is no such thing as first class degree, or 2:1's. I graduated second in a class of 89 people.

Wow, where did this topic end up... Third Page! Just wanted to check with you, is it normal that I still don't have an offer of a college place for Oxford? Do you guys have it?
