About the Webinar
In the past couple of decades, pursuing an LLM from a foreign university has become a common intention amongst Indian law graduates. Specializing in a particular area helps you expand your career prospects, and build a network of your own.
Studying in a foreign country broadens your horizons, and brings you unparalleled exposure. It not only enhances your knowledge but also plays an integral role in your journey of self-growth and development. However, it is definitely a challenging task to finance one’s LLM abroad.
To further our endeavour of knowledge sharing, we are conducting a free and open webinar on ‘Financing Your LLM Abroad’. Through this webinar, we aim to impart a better understanding of financing strategies, fundraising methods as well as available scholarships.
Key Takeaways from the Webinar
- What is the minimum amount of money needed to complete an LLM in the UK or Europe?
- How to finance your LLM with only a partial scholarship or no scholarship?
- How to finance your LLM when there is an existing education loan for one’s undergraduate studies?

- What kind of earnings can one expect from part-time jobs during the LLM?
