First Person Accounts: Sreejita Mitra on LL.M. applications at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL)

I had two criteria while shortlisting universities. First was the country I wanted to study in and second was the course. The UK was always my preferred choice and the universities I decided to apply to were the ones that had impressive Competition Law Courses

First Person Accounts: Roshni Menon on the Chevening Scholarship, applying for the King’s College LL.M.

I did not want to do a master’s degree for the sake of doing one. Because to my mind, it is more than just a career milestone – rather, it needs to serve some predefined purpose.

Make the most of your LLM experience by meeting and interacting with people from diverse backgrounds. Seek to create meaningful bonds with people without only focusing on what’s in it for me.

First Person Accounts: Kirthana S. Khurana on the MCL at the University of Cambridge

The MCL course is more strenuous than the LLM course at Cambridge, as we took six courses against four in LLM, and were examined thrice in an academic term. To be honest, this was extremely stressful at times.

First Person Accounts: Dr. Shashwat Bajpai on the BCL at the University of Oxford, legal education & more

If we can somehow emulate, let’s say the ‘Tutorial’ concept from the BCL course into the Indian legal education system (it’s a long shout, I know!), then we can truly have the National Law Universities/Law Schools amongst the most prestigious in the world.

Academically, the most valuable experience for me was a massive improvement in the most basic skills that any lawyer must possess, that is, critical thinking, analytical thinking, and writing skills.
