"I managed to reach out to some good law firms in New York through the faculty. It was a great networking experience altogether. In other words, I built the foundation of my career in the U.S. at Franklin Pierce itself"

My first advice would be “Start early” ! Secondly, look for the top universities in your field of interest rather than a general search for top universities.
The study at Victoria University is more of research based and involves critical analysis of propositions as opposed to the usual question answers patterns for exams
I would recommend studying and learning as much as possible, and networking with people, both in and out of the university in one’s filed, as two most important aspects of an LL.M. program.
A master’s is an all-round enriching experience that forces one to broaden one’s horizons and think outside the box.
I have seen students burning their parent's cash in London and then at the end of the course they are extremely worried about recovering the costs specially with the pay-scale in India.
