Are there specific schools you're targeting?

Often, LLMs will do their PhD at the same school where they studied for their LLM. I think this factor might put you at a disadvantage, especially for US law schools.

For UK schools, many will look at your undergraduate performance as well as your LLM grades. For instance, at Manchester, they want an Upper Second Class Honours degree plus an LLM with a merit.

I would say it depends on what schools you're looking at, their requirements, as well as how interesting you and your potential research interests are to them.
