Hi guys,

I'm a third year Law with Politics student from the University of Manchester. I'm thinking of applying for the Cambridge LLM.

I know you need a first but I was wondering whether you could still get a conditional offer although your current average is, as is the case with me, not quite a first (my second year amounts to 69,25%)? One of my marks has been 80% and one of my essays has been published.

Also, I did poorly in my first year (62,5%) but it won't count towards my degree. But since I won't have any other grades I fear they will still be taken into consideration.

Would you think it still makes sense to go for it? I do intend to graduate with a first.


Hi Bolivia,
I have not had direct experience of this as I applied after recieving my results (from Law at Uni of Manchester!) but I would think they would still consider your application as they ask for you to be expecting a 1st if you have not yet graduated, which you are and there is evidence to back your expectation. If you can give some circumstances as to why you did less well in 1st year (I wouldn't go so far as to say 62.5% is poor though for a first year grade) I think that would help. I have a place at Cambridge even though a couple of my degree module grades are pretty shoddy so I think they would look at your application overall.

Hi everyone,

I just went to the faculty website and find out there will be some introductory lectures in late September or early October. I wonder whether they are useful.


Thanks a lot.

I'll arrive in the UK on the 27th so if my college can accomodate me I will probably attend these introductoryu lectures.

I'm very disapointed however that the competition law lecture is overlapping the International IP law lecture...

Hi,
How do I access the schedule/time table of the introductory lectures? I will arrive in the UK on the 23rd and would like to attend them as well. I would appreciate if you can share such information. By saying IP and competition law are overlapping, do you mean just the introductory lectures or the actual course time table during this academic year?

I am very disapointed as well! Those were my favourite subjects.. I'm not sure about what I'll do know.. They have maintained these subjects on the same time they were last year, so I suppose there is no chance theyll change it

Thank you for this useful information. If I ever find any useful information, I will share in this conversation thread as well.

Yes, it must be disappointing for people who want to take both classes. However, I see that there is another class called " Intellectual Property," which I guess may teach different materials.

Wonder when the subject forum will take place, as I saw no notice about it on the faculty website. It should be before the introductory lectures, right?

Dear lawschoolfan,
I have a feeling the subject form may take place after the introductory lectures as I noticed that the date of the forum last year was Oct 5th. The official class lecture probably starts on Oct 6th. By the way, you can access the script and recording of the forum at this website:
http://www.law.cam.ac.uk/courses/llm-subject-forum.php

I never look at the law faculty web but I searched for this on google. Hope this helps.

Now I am writing a visa application. In my CAS, the course title is "Law (couse ID: LWM1, qualification awarded: Master of Law)" instead of "LLM". Is your CAS also the same?

Yes... What do you think LLM stands for? ;)

Yeah... I'm just filling out the form. Should I write "Law (LWM1)" or "Law (LLM)" in the space for the course title in the appendix 8? (There is a separate space for the qualification awarded.) It may be a minor thing, but completing the application form correctly is quite important for gettting a visa quickly.

I understand perfectly the stress of filing the form correctly!

I put "Law" for course title and "Master of law" for qualification awarded.

Also, if anyone is still not able to get into contact with Suzanne Wade, I called this number +44 1223 330033 and asked to be put through to her. Both times I called this number it was answered quickly and I was put straight through. Hope that helps

Hi Legaljargon,

Try emailing her and make it important. I exchanged emails with her on saturday and it was as if we were chatting, with the speed of her responses, although she was replying to a mail I sent over a month ago. U may also mention ur issue here for us all. Maybe someone who got to her earlier might hav an answer for u

Hi Legaljargon,

Try the University switchboard +44 1223 337733, I work in University admin (at another University not Cambridge) and can say most people pick up an internal transfer even if too busy to pick up outgoing calls.
