I passed!

I passed my LLM, finally! After 3 long years of studying it’s finally over. I got an invite for graduation in UK at the University of Derby but I don’t think I’ll go, it’s just too far away.

So what I have learnt in these 3 years? And what have I gained? I remember originally I wanted to do the masters by research in NTU for the Semantic Web, but was turned down because I don’t have an honours degree. That was so long ago.

In retrospect I think I learnt much more with a law degree than a Masters of Science in Computer Engineering. I’d probably never become a real lawyer but the knowledge of the legal system and the laws that are relevant to what I do will come in handy. In fact, I’m quite surprised at the low level of legal knowledge within the IT industry.

  1. I am starting to look for a postgraduate programme. But like yourself, without an honours degree, I am having some obstacles getting to a programme that I wanted. Btw, which is the law programme you did, and at which university? I remember you told me 3 years ago, but memory is failing me.

  2. hi eugene, i did a masters of commercial law at the university of derby. you might try that (http://www.derby.ac.uk) or you might try the university of london llm programme though that is more expensive and a more difficult route.

    anyway you can try to go to http://www.itc2u.com, that’s the local school i went to for the programme, and you can find both there.

    a word of caution however, go for a post-grad programme that you like, not just look for one that you think might help you in your career only.

  3. Hey this was probably one of the most effective blurbs I have read on the subject so far. I don’t know where you get all your data but keep it coming! I am going to send some people to this site to read this. Awesome, simply awesome. I’m have just started getting into spitting out articles myself, nothing close to your writing potential (ha!) but I’d love for you to take my article sometime! right here

  4. How-do-you-do, just needed you to know I have added your site to my Google bookmarks because of your special blog layout. But in earnest, I think your site has one of the finest theme I’ve came across. It really helps make reading your blog a lot easier.
