While the LLM has its own strong set of advantages for a lawyer, an MBA presents me with a unique opportunity to learn something entirely alien to lawyers.
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.
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.
The ILF offers courses in finance and economics in addition to banking and finance law. The course is designed in way that even graduates from business background can pursue it. It attempts to bring law and business graduates on the same page.
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.
