Fletcher has really a great pool of faculties, which are at par with any other elite institution around the world, in terms of academics and professional expertise.
Public International Law can seem like a bumpy road, especially in the initial years of your practice. You have to zone out yourselves and not look at the steady career progression of your peers working at law firms or as litigators.
Apart from academics, I have developed my management skills, strengthened my critical thinking and autonomous intellect.
One of the great things about HLS is the infinite amount of lunch/coffee talks on so many interesting contemporary and historical legal issues. Not only that, you can also cross-register for courses at other Harvard schools.
At NUS, we used to have 24 hour open book exams, video making, preparing opinions for real life cases at hand, surprise quizzes, etc. which were although demanding, but absolutely interesting and fun.
I think my stint abroad gave me certain confidence to take clients independently. The experience of an LLM instilled a new- found sense of self conviction.
The strong research and analytical skills that I gained while pursuing my LLM coursework have enabled me to quickly grasp and respond to new legal developments.
Make the most of your LLM experience by meeting and interacting with people from diverse backgrounds. Seek to create meaningful bonds with people without only focusing on what’s in it for me.
Aside from the academic opportunities, the chance to spend a year with talented lawyers from across the world is unparalleled, and that alone makes the LLM worth it.
Not shying away from introducing yourself confidently will do wonders for students looking for job opportunities and there will always be somebody who will recognize your true potential.
I would certainly believe that Penn State helped me to overcome my shortcomings, pushed me to think beyond the clouds, and choose a non-conventional method.
I was sure that I wanted to practice corporate law with a focus on securities law and what better than a school providing me an opportunity of a 2 year JD program, right across the river from the NYSE and the NASDAQ.
The MCL course is more strenuous than the LLM course at Cambridge, as we took six courses against four in LLM, and were examined thrice in an academic term. To be honest, this was extremely stressful at times.
what really mattered was the diligence in responding displayed by everyone at Emory. They were very patient with me through all my queries and helped me at each step of the admissions process.
The ICAL experience was absolutely terrific. I would recommend anyone who is aspiring to gain international commercial arbitration knowledge in depth to purse the ICAL program.
The professors here play the dual role of being the teacher and the mentor. This was life changing for me as I was yearning for mentor from whom I can look up to, learn from, and emulate certain traits.
