Harvard and Yale both prefer candidates who want to pursue a career in teaching and even though i dont i think it will improve my chances if i lie. I intend to apply after completion of my LLB which i have recently begun so what can i do during my course that could show this?


You could teach at a law School, I guess.

Harvard does not have any such preference.

Considering that you've only recently started your LLB, it would probably be better to focus on getting the best possible grades and getting the degree first before thinking about what kind of teaching experience can supposedly give you an edge for an LLM application. I think whatever demonstrated commitment to teaching either school is looking for can only show once you're near the end of your degree or are already a certified lawyer in your jurisdiction (this part is just my opinion though).

In the meantime, if you hang around the forums a bit, you'll find there are other things you can actually do while in law school will be beneficial for your LL.M applications such as internships or publications.
