Multiple LLMs


jklia

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone ever considered doing two LLMs in the US, or if its even allowed?

I mean by that having one full LLM in the US, being qualified in the US, and after significant work experience doing a second LLM in a different US law school in a different legal speciality?

The point being to aim for a higher ranked LLM and a more specialised year, free of bar requirement classes.

Thank you!

I don’t think there’s any rule preventing it, but if you’re going to do two years, you might as well enroll in the JD and apply for advanced standing of one full year of credit under rule... something something something I forget.

Two LLMs will not make you more employable or better qualify you for the bar exam. Worse yet, you’d probably learn more studying specialized areas of law on your own or just writing law review articles independently, (which will make you more employable, frankly). You can audit as many classes on the side as you wish at an LLM - just walk in on the classes and pretend like you’re in the course- read , write, do what you want. If you really want to specialize and study more, shoot for an SJD.

I know some people who completed both general LLM and Tax LLM.
