Both in the UK and overseas the internationally focused LLM is a ‘gold standard’ qualification for entry into the legal profession, as the focus of specialization has increasingly shifted to international legal practice.
In the corporate business world, the LLM carries a similar cachet to the Executive MBA, while offering greater specialism in its content. In many European jurisdictions, the LLM is a compulsory prerequisite for entry into the legal profession.
