An LLM or Master of Laws is an advanced degree specializing in law for students who have completed prior undergraduate programs. Those who wish to take the program should do so if they are interested in a career in law.
What is an LLM in Common Law? An LLM focuses on giving students in-depth courtroom training along with an understanding of the history of the legal system, the practice of law and the science and theory behind the laws of a given country. Courses in common law may include more specialized areas of law such as civil and environmental. Not only can students learn the particulars of law itself, but they can also attend courses that strengthen analytical and critical-thinking skills and encourage real-time demonstrations and participation.
Learning the art of debate in LLM courses can give you the opportunity to strengthen your communication, presentation and legal navigation skills. These skills may be beneficial in pursuing higher qualifications in other educational programs, completing personal projects and gaining career opportunities.
An LLM program’s cost will depend on both the length of the program you’re attending and the school that is offering the program. You should also keep in mind your legal residence and the location of the school itself, as well as the number of courses you are required to take.
Pursuing a career in common law can help prepare you for the bar exam in your country, especially if you are looking to become a qualified practicing lawyer. Even if you choose not to take the bar exam, a career in common law can lead you to becoming a consultant or a paralegal at a law firm with the right certification. You can also choose to work for a nonprofit organization or help manage a legal team or offer legal counsel. Other common law careers may exist in academia.
Programs can be taken at a participating university or online. It all depends on your personal preferences. Go ahead and search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
