Civil Liberties LLM


akotsaki

Hey everyone. I’m prepping my applications for LLMs and I’m struggling to articulate what I want to study. I’m fascinated by the US constitution and impact civil litigation and that’s the primary reason why I want to undertake my LLM in the US and hopefully work for an org like the ACLU or NAACP. But is this gonna sound odd to an admission committee? Is it better to say I wanna study international human rights and I wish to bring the American perspective into my education?

No, it's not odd at all. Just make sure you understand the kinds of careers that are available to LLMs in organizations like this. My suggestion is to make it specific: say, I want to do xxx job at ACLU or the NAACP, and here are the reasons how an LLM from your school will help me be competitive for this position.
