Whether or not to pursue a master in law is a big decision for any lawyer, and indeed their law firms. In our regular surveys on post-graduate studies we identify the most popular universities at home and abroad, and unpick the factors influencing lawyers’ choices, from financing to career prospects.
This year, for the first time, Latin Lawyer explores the universities that Latin America’s corporate lawyers choose for postgraduate studies in their home jurisdictions. While obtaining an LLM abroad is an attractive proposition for many Latin American lawyers, a postgraduate degree from a local university has its own benefits. In a series of articles, Vincent Manancourt seeks to identify the most popular law schools in the region and find out what courses are most in demand, as well as hearing the case for staying at home to get a postgraduate qualification. Not wishing to ignore the international route entirely, we also present the results of our annual survey into international LLMs
