The entire process of applications is tiring and stressful, but the kind of exposure you get during your one year of LL.M, at a personal and professional level, will make it all worth it.
GULC allows LL.M. students to pursue an externship program in the Spring Semester, which I felt would increase my practical exposure in the United States in addition to theoretical knowledge.
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.
I know I have also made some friends for life. I have taken up learning a new language, trying my hand at a musical instrument, abstract painting, reading books in my mother tongue etc. Bottomline: zero regrets.
The LL.M. year passes by very quickly and it is very easy to lose sight of one’s goals in the busy year.
An LLM abroad is a great journey, if you know your destination. Make sure you know why you want to pursue your masters and then give it your all. This will be the best time of your life.
