What is LL.M?
The Master of Laws (M.L. or LL.M. in Latin Magister Legum or Legum Magister) is a postgraduate academic degree, followed by those who hold an academic law degree (LL.B). In some jurisdictions, the “Master of Laws” is the basic professional degree for admission into legal practice. Currently, doing a thesis for LL.M degree is not compulsory as many universities offered a subject as replacement of thesis. In Pakistan, LL.M is equal to 18 years of education like M.Phil and MS. It is more often considered as an academic degree rather than a complete professional degree like LL.B which is compulsory for legal practice.
Why doing a thesis for LL.M is considered tough?
For many students, choosing a thesis topic for their LL.M thesis is quite tough work. The reason is they do not understand and cannot analyze which legal filed should they choose to do their research for a thesis. That’s why so many students go for a single subject rather doing long research. Although, research enhances your vision and broadens your knowledge which ultimately helpful in shaping up your legal career in a very smooth way.
Another thing is that many students are lawyers and could not find time to do legal research for their selected topics. Therefore, they choose single subject rather going for research. Every student of Law should understand that doing research is exactly what they are doing in their daily court work. They do search for the case laws, relevant sections and facts of the case. Similarly, doing research for their LL.M thesis is not more than this. A student must give his or her 1 to 2 hours daily not more than this and in response, they can easily manage their research and court work together.
For the guidance of such students who find it hard to what topic they should choose for their LL.M thesis, we have given here some topics for doing an LL.M thesis in Pakistan.
NOTE: These topics are just for guidance the finality of these topics to do research is subject to the approval from authorities of your specific institutions.
