Hello, This is to inform you that the enthusiast holds a BA.LLB degree from India and gathered 2.9 + years of work experience in Insurance Industry in legal claims in India. Can I apply for LLM program and also please specify the eligibility and scholarship if any.

Hi Amishra – I hope you are well. It sounds as if you have suitable qualifications to study an LLM – although if you are an international student you may also need to provide official evidence of English Language skills. I think you need to contact the law schools that you are interested in and find out what their requirements are. Once you have been offered a place on an LLM degree you will be eligible to apply for one of our Global LLM Study Bursaries worth £500 > https://www.llmstudy.com/editorial/llm_fees_and_funding/master_of_laws_sources_of_funding/global_us_llm_study_bursaries/information/
Good luck.
