LLM in George Washington University Law School
By Sh on Feb 20, 2008
Hi my friends
It is my first time to write here. I have checked this site since four months. I found it really interesting and useful. I posted questions, my friends gave me very brilliant replies which I could not find any where else. In fact, now it is my habit to check the site as I am checking my e-mail every day.
I am not enrolled in US law schools yet, but applied to four. I am waiting and as this saying is popular " The wait is killing." I don't know where I would be admitted, New York, Washington D.C, New Orleans or California. I love to be in New York or Washington, but I should see what happens.
I can not find LLM students from my country (Afghanistan) in this site. Among my friends who are coming to US this year (2008), I am the only one who is studying law. I know studying law in US is difficult, the language and the differece between US legal system (common law) and my country's legal system (civil law+Islamic law) are the two major problems I am afraid of them.
I will write in this blog, and I will change my blog's name, and put name of the school where I be admitted in the coming month. Wish you good luck and happeniss.

Finally, I got the news of my admission. I will go to The George Washington University Law School and I am very happy about this. International and Comparative Law is my favorite and I will concentrate on International Business and Corporate Law. I like the school. It ranks 20 according to the US News and Reports Ranking and its International and Comparative Law program ranks 8 in US.
Washington DC is a very nice place and I specially like its springs. I have been there for some days before during the very nice days of spring. Being the capital of the country makes the city more attractable to the international students who want to get more familiar with the US institutes and governance. GW which a four blocks from the White House puts you in the heart of a place with high political movements. For me it is even better that I would be there during the 2008 presidential election. For example, since Hillary Clinton became a candidate, she had two speeches in GW.
In order to be more prepared, I will participate in the Pre-LLM Program which takes four weeks in Georgetown University. Again that is in DC.
