legallyblonde posted a topic in Decisions, DecisionsIs is really that much important the reputation of the university? I have been accepted to the MALS Dartmouth, Queen's MA in Political Legal Philosophy, St. Andrews MLitt in Legal and Constitutional Studies and Sherbrooke University for the Master of Laws (LLM). So far, the advices I have received are really to go with the prestigious school - Dartmouth, Queen's St. Andrews and to not keep Sherbrooke University. However, I do believe there is a value in their degree -- LLM. It is normally quite impossible to enter in that degree without a prior law degree so I have to say that despite their lower reputation, I felt it was quite attractive to have this chance to study law at the graduate level. More particularly, if I had the chance to pursue a doctorate in law, I believe this program would be my only chance to pursue legal research or teach law later on.
Hey there! As it says, I'm trying to decide between Saarland University (Germany) and the University of York (UK) for an LLM in Human Rights Law. The aspects I'm most intrigued about in my grad program is that the Master's has a practical focus, either through outside opportunities for practical engagement with human rights law, or through integration in the courses themselves, or both! Q: One thing that is important to me is also the career opportunities after graduating. I'm having difficulty finding any information to be able to compare the universities on this basis, so any advice on how to find information or specific things to look for would be great. The cost between the universities is also a fairly significant difference. Tuition for York is around $20,000 (USD), and $6720 (USD) for Saarland. I'm coming out of undergrad with no debt, which would be great to continue, but also understand that (compared to my fellow American students), $20K in debt isn't all that much? Q: What I'd like to know is what people's experience is with debt after graduate programs, particularly those who went/are going into fields with low/moderate starting salaries. Did it impact your decision to accept or not accept a job based on whether you'd be able to pay off your loans quicker/in full? Q: Also, what has been current or past students experience with the LLM at York and Saarland? Thanks for reading!
Chuks posted a topic in Waiting it OutHi everyone, I was wondering if anyone here applied to Dalhousie University particularly Schulich School of Law for Fall 2018. I was told that admissions committee would meet in May.
Markita95 posted a question in Questions and AnswersHey everyone! I am a final year law student from India who will be applying for a Master's degree next year. I am interested in working in academia, and I hope to immediately become a PhD candidate after completing my Masters. I am interested in human rights, international law and international relations. I've been looking up various universities in Europe (because of living costs and fees being most accessible for me) and have found two interesting degrees: an LLM from the Geneva Academy in International Humanitarian Law & Human Rights, and the E.MA in Human Rights and Democratisation from EIUC Venice. The second program seems more tailored to my general interests, but I've found it hard to find reviews for these programs. I've got three questions: 1. Has anyone attended the European Masters Degree in Human Rights and Democratisation from EIUC Venice? If so, please let me know your opinion of the program and how well it prepares you for academia. 2. On a broader note, is a one-year master's program conducive to immediate further study as a PhD candidate? 3. For the purposes of academia, is an LLM preferred to an MA?
