LLM Study in 2021
Law Schools are currently recruiting for 2021 and 2022.
Covid-19 has disrupted university life and most students are currently attending online courses.
Most Law Schools are expecting to offer on campus courses again from 2021.
Law Schools aim to have an innovative curriculum that represents developments in the legal sector.
LLM students participate in study groups with their international peers.
At several law schools LLM students can take part in Moot Courts. (A moot court is a co-curricular activity at many law schools, simulating court or arbitration proceedings.)
The majority of Law Schools offer a wide range of subjects. Technology is developing fast and many law schools offer data science and data analytics in their course and subject offering.
AI and machine learning are also disrupting the legal sector.
Almost every sector in law, including business, criminal justice, antitrust, intellectual property, cybersecurity, property, security, human rights and many more are influenced by it.
AI is disrupting and influencing the study of nearly every area of the law: business, criminal justice, , international, legal history, securities regulation, social policy, and more.
LLM course fees are high and choosing the right LLM course is important.
The Master of Laws (LLM, LL.M.) is an advanced academic degree in law.
Students are usually required to hold a bachelor of law before starting their LLM study.
Originally LLM programs were offered primarity in the United States and the United Kingdom.
There are a wide range of LLM programs available worldwide. LLM study are often allowing students to focus on a particlar area of law. Some of most popular LLM programs include tax law, sometimes referred to as an MLT (Master of Laws in Taxation) and international law.
An LLM degree is offered either as a full-time, part-time, distance learning or online study. The majority of full-time LLM programs run over one year and part-time LLM degrees over 2 years.
A lawyer is not required to hold an LLM degree. However in several countries it can enhance a career in law by graduating with an LLM degree. Legal officers at international organisations hold advanced law degrees, such as an LLM.
