I have completed my LLB studies at undergraduate level, but I always wanted to do Masters.
Everyone's advise seems to be to go to study Masters if you're genuinely interested in the subject and I would love to do something that's related to Eastern Europe - its languages, history, politics.. etc. Something fairly interdisciplinary.
However, my main and ultimate goal is to get a TC in a corporate law firm and I am wondering how this would be perceived in the law firms?
I know that many do have their offices in that region of Europe, so supposedly this decision could be explained.
I just wanted to ask you what's your take on it? Is it quite unconventional to follow such path? Does it even make any sense to you, or it just comes across as some random decision ?

I don't think it will disadvantage your application for corporate law firms at all. It's not considered advantageous to have an LLM for most corporate law firms as very little of what we do requires that level of academic understanding.
Indeed, around half of successful applicants don't even have a degree in law at all.
I suggest do whatever subject you're interested in.

Is an LLM ever going to boost your career prospects?
