I would agree with Shock that a JD will go much further for you than an LLMin terms of getting you towards a practice in international law. Many people look at an LLM as a way to supplement a JD, though I suppose for more academically minded individuals the LLM could be a pursuit on its own. Just understand that an LLM will be worthless in the US without an accompanying JD. Further, as Shock says, without you being a Chinese national, you cannot sit for the Chinese bar (OMG one of my friends just wrote that she passed the PRC national bar and I am so excited for her because the pass rate is so low).

I would suggest doing a study abroad in China during the summer of your first year of law school. This would set you up perfectly, along with a course load focused on international law, to one day practice in China. The LLM can wait until you get your JD, and only if you feel unprepared to enter the Chinese legal market without it.

Hi Guys,

I was accepted into the Spring 2008 class for the Tsinghua LLM program starting in Feb. I am from Australia and don't have much idea of how good the program is, its reputation (considered by local, HK and also Western standards), and what the courses are exactly like. Also I'm not sure how it stacks up to Beida's program. Can someone please provide some clarity around this? Would appreciate any and all of your insights as I am one confused person!

Sorry if you noticed this post in multiple topics since I wasn't sure which one people look at the most.


Cheers

Hi, I'm actually applying to both Tsinghua's LLM and Peking's. However, I don't quite understand how to make the 800 RMB payment for Beida's LL.M.

I understand that fee must be paid and included in the same mailing packet as that containing the application materials.

About this, but I don't quite get how. Does anyone know if I can I wire transfer this amount to some account to make the payment?

If this is not an option, how else can I make the payment? I'm currently in Mexico and I understand that foreign currencies and/or traveler's checks will not be accepted.

Thanks!!

Thanks population! I did write to her and got a response regarding the account in the Bank of China where I can transfer the money to. However, she said there wasn't a swift code and when I went to the bank, they couldn't find it with the info she gave me.

By any chance, do you still have the account info of where you sent the application money?

thanks!

I was an LLM student in their first year, last year. I have shared some of my thoughts on as to whether the LLM was worth it, in our firm blog, www.chinalawpracticeblog, link to http://chinalawpracticeblog.com/?p=25. Take a look, I encourage you to post any comments or questions you have.

Hi,
I've been accepted into the LL.M. in Singapore/Shanghai organised by NUS and in Beijing by BeiDa. I'm really happy but I'm in two minds.
Any suggestions?
Thank you

Hi, is there anyone who received an admission from Beida? I got it the day before yesterday.

Everyone in Tsinghua LL.M. program says Tsinghua LL.M. is the best one in China. Their argument is based on financial strength of Tsinghua (Tsinghua has better buildings and facilities, and their LL.M. is well-financed, etc) and overall alumni network of the University (i.e. Current Chinese leader, Mr. Hu went to Tsinghua).

Any different opinion here?

Hey, did you figure out where you want to Tsinghua or Peking? Any other information would be great. Personally, I believe Peking sounds great. Though, the post made by the past student with the link to the article is swaying my opinion. What do you think?

Hi murph, where are you from?

Did you also get admissions from both Beida and Tsinghua? I've got one from Tsinghua today. Thus, I am at a loss which school I should choose. My Chinese friends who went to Beida law school strongly recommend that I should choose Beida because Beida has much longer history (not LL.M. but law school history), and consequently much better alumni networks when it comes to law school. They argue even many of Tsinghua professors went to Beida.

Well...it's really tough decision. Any comments or suggestions?
