We all know doing an LLM in a foreign country is a huge investment but believe me, that with the right dose of effort and commitment it will eventually pay out.
Ultimately, you know yourself best, so I would suggest make your statement as interesting as possible. Most people who apply to foreign universities are obviously very qualified, but you can stand out by making your statement both personal and interesting.
In 2017, Pallavi Chandrasekhar graduated with an LL.M. from the School of Law at New York University.
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.
Both NYU and NYC have taught me numerous life and professional lessons.
NYU has the best arbitration courses (both commercial and investment treaty) which I was looking for.
One of the biggest plus points for me has been developing this network of friends all around the globe who are all doing extremely well. No doubt it is a great asset to have from a business perspective, but it holds far greater value to me personally.
I recommend gaining some experience before an LLM degree. It also gives you clarity about your interest areas which helps you to design your LLM program accordingly.
