Asian universities regularly feature in the best law schools of the world, and even if you are not into rankings, these universities merit a second look for anyone interested in an LL.M. abroad.
My number one advice to any LL.M. applicant would be to be a 100% sure as to why you want to pursue your masters and what value addition will the course bring to the table.
It is rightly put that true learning begins at the end of your comfort zone and that’s exactly how I’d like to quote my LLM experience
I feel that a lot of times, applicants explain how the particular course would help them in their career but they do not focus on how they would be benefitting the university.

Harsh Mahaseth is currently pursuing a specialised LL.M. in Asian Legal Studies at the National University of Singapore.
