Columbia's LLM ; 1 year of post law school work experience


IoannS

Hello everyone,

I'm currently thinking about an application to Columbia's LLM for 2024-2025.

As you probably knows, it's a requirement to have at least one year of post law school work experience but it seems like it's also possible to be accepted "under exceptional circumstances".

I'd like to knows if having a tons of internship (in various kind of structure) + a work-study degree might be seen as "exceptional circumstances".

Does someones here have been admitted with such case?

Kind regards

Hi,
I'm applying for LLMs this year as well, including Columbia, so I can't speak from my own experience.
However, I know someone who did an LLM at Columbia directly after his Master's degree - one of the most prestigious in France in business law.
He did a 6-month internship as part of his Master's degree, plus a few summer internships. Altogether, his professional experience was indeed one year. But it wasn't a year of "proper" work (I mean, as an employee) after the Master's as you might think.


I realize after writing my answer that the question was asked a few months ago. I'm posting it anyway if it might help anyone.
