When confronted with a big decision, people often create lists of pros and cons, strengths and weaknesses, opportunities and threats. Lawyers looking at achieving an advanced law degree can find many reasons to complete a LLM degree; employability, knowledge, language, travel, compensation, credibility or the ability to practice in another country.
The one question that LLM applicants should not encounter is how they will fund their program.
LLM Funding with Prodigy Finance
While this has been a concern in years past as the LLM programs were reserved for those lawyers who had personal savings or firm sponsorships to help cover the cost of the programs, Prodigy Finance is proud to announce a brand new program for top LLM applicants.
With an LLM loan from Prodigy Finance, you can take control of your finances by self-funding your education. Without the need for a U.S. co-signer, burdensome collateral, or dwindling sponsorship, it is now possible to afford an international LLM degree.
Since 2007, Prodigy Finance has offered financing for international students’ postgraduate studies, and has funded more than 3,800 international students through their MBAs and other business-focused Masters degrees. They are now expanding the platform to include the world’s top law schools, starting in the US with these schools:
