I’m really worried that law firms will think Masters’ students are too academic and therefore not give me a training contract.
I’m a final year law student on course for a 2:2 and have therefore failed to secure a training contract despite making loads of applications. I was therefore planning to do an LLM in a bid to give my academics a boost. Do you think it’s a good idea or will I be better off trying to gain some relevant work experience? I’m worried that law firms think Masters’ students are too academic. Also, I’d love to hear from people who are currently doing an LLM on what they think? Are they hard work?
