So I am planning to apply for LLM to the following universities:
- Oxford (M.Jur)
A brief background about me: I have an LL.B (majoring in Business Law) from a top law school in Indonesia (#1) with a GPA of 3.75 (graduated on Aug 2020).
During my study I have participated in several local competitions (won 3) and 3 international ADR competitions (won 2). Additionally, I have published 2 journals (related to cryptocurrency & blockchain) and 2 articles.
Personally, I have a strong interest on securities-banking law, and fintech law (especially blockchain). Moreover, over the span of my uni year up until now I have interned over 6 months in 3 top law firms here.
My questions are:
1. I am aware that several universities put an emphasize on work experience. With my work experience, does that mean I am less likely to be accepted? should I wait?
2. Personally, I aim for UChicago or Georgetown. With my current background, am I likely to be accepted to US/UK/NE? Because I am quite nervous and still ponders whether I should apply or not considering there are more experienced and genius applicants out there.
3. This is plain out of curiosity. I am aware that some law schools in US allow LL.M transfer to J.D. For example, UChicago & UCLA. What about Georgetown? Does Georgetown allow its LL.M students to transfer to their J.D program?
