LLB TO JD?


Inactive User

Is there any university that will allow me to pursuit a JD:

1- Without taking LSATs?
2- Transfer credit from my undergrad to the JD?

Im currently a senior (finished classes, awaiting grad) with a LLB in South America, but Im a US citizen and would like to practice in the USA. Two reasons for my query: JD's are expensive and LSATs can't be taken anywhere near my country (and flying to another is quite difficult for me at this time).

Ideas?

Hey!

If you want to join a three year JD program, LSAT is a must. It is the basis on which admission is given. However, if you are admitted to a LLM program, there are a few universities which allow a limited number of students to transfer to the JD without LSAT. Ofcourse, you will lose the LLM degree except in case of University of Pennsylvania. This transfer is done on taking into account several factors like - your grades, difficulty of the courses you took and LLM professor recommendations etc.)

If you do not wish to take the LSAT this is the only viable option for you. But I suggest you hurry, because all the good university deadlines are fast approaching.

All the best!
