LOL. Sorry for laughing but it is unavoidable.

Literally, your list is almost all the areas of law available in the universe. There is no one who can specialise in all the areas of law. It is also not possible that all the above areas of law somehow interest you equally. It is even more worrying that at a master's level, you clearly have not figured out your career path.

My advice is that with the mixed choices you have, you are better off leaving the LLM for now and practising law for sometime. Go into practice for 2-3 years and during that time, you will be able to figure out what area of law actually does genuinely interest you and what you would want to specialise in. You are not ready for an LLM yet.

Even if you were to choose a traditional LLM, there is no LLM that will allow you to take all the above modules. You only have 4 modules to choose and atmost 6 modules. Already you have listed the following specialisms; international law, intellectual property, human rights law, air and space law, media law, labour law, insurance law. There is no traditional LLM that will allow you to choose all those and you are not even sure what specialism you want so a specialised LLM is a bad either as well.

In short, get a job and work for atleast 2 years and figure out what you really want first.

Hello,


I'm glad it makes you laugh but honestly i am lost

I worked in different law firms for 2 years as legal secretary and i obtained a dual degree in law / economics and mangement and these areas really appeal to me even if i like more insurance, real estate/property,employment and bankcruptcy law than other but they are interesting.And I can not register in several different masters!.

Actually, I do see a common denominator here. Having practiced for nearly 2 years in an Intellectual Property specialized firm, I can tell you that within the IP practice you'll be in permanent contact with human rights law (IP rights as fundamental rights and health issues), international law (treaty compliance/development, WTO implementation, WIPO policies), entertainment and media law (directly related IP rights within a branch of this huge sector), and health law (very, very interesting this last one: WTO, patents, RDP, trademarks, regulatory and compliance), to mention some relation between IP and those fields.

That would only leave out bankruptcy, insurance, air and space, and labour (although it depends on what area of employment you'd like to develop into). Does this makes it a little bit easier? Maybe not, I think.

On the other side, I kind of agree with LegalLife on the practice for a few years before: that will most likely help. On my part, I knew since before ending my LLB that I wanted to do an LLM in Dispute Settlement. Funny things led me to enter an IP specialized practice, and I was honestly surprised and now satisfied by with that fate. I finally enrolled this year in a Dispute Settlement LLM, as planned all along. Nothing changed, then? Well, I learned a lot from a field in which I would have never thought of practicing, and now I eventually want to do an LLM in Pharmaceutical Law (far future, but it's something that got stucked in me because of my practice).

Good luck with whatever you decide to do!

Hello, working as a legal secretary is not the same as working as a lawyer.

I insist that with how al-over-the-place your interests are, you are better off working! Work some more as a lawyer and then you will figure out what exactly you want to specialise in.
