Training contract after LLM


annamhda

Hello,

I am thinking of applying to various LLM programs in the UK and was wondering where LSE stands in terms of career opportunities.
I have an undergraduate degree in a different jurisdiction and would like to apply for training contracts after completion of the LLM. How good are the chances of getting one as a LSE graduate?

Thanks a lot!

Hi, LSE is generally a very good university, but, in theory, you don't need the LLM to apply for TCs in the UK, as UK-based firms tend to value the UG degree over the PG degree. In fact, there is a fair number of non-UK graduates obtaining training contracts every year with no British LLM degree either.

Thank you so much for your response!
It is, however, very difficult to get a TC as a foreign student without any curricular experience in the UK. Hence, I was wondering whether LSE is comparable to Oxbridge in terms of career opportunities.

thanks a lot!

Hi,

Yeah, I'd say the opportunities are similar (Although as an Oxonian I should say Oxford is waaaay better :p)

Btw, what is also valued by UK law firms when it comes to TC applications is commercial awareness and the understanding of what the work of a (commercial) solicitor entails.

No worries. Also, a huge benefit of being at an institution such as the LSE is access to its careers service, which can help you with your application; this is very useful for both UK and non-UK students.
