Pre LL-M Programs


japp.law
Hey guys. I was wondering... you think it is important to take a pre LLM course before the actual thing kicks off? Some schools offer that... even though the first week of class is pretty much all about Introduction to American Law.
Does it really stand out in one's resume? Is it worth the investment? It can cost as much as 10k - including housing and everything.
If you have an opinion, please share!
Cheers!

Hey, can you give some examples of the courses you are talking about? I know some universities offer a basic English course for foreign students and this is before the introduction to American Law. I am sure you are not referring to this course.

If you can give links/examples to these courses, it would be helpful in answering your question.

Thanks

Hey Simone! Thanks for your reply.

The courses are pretty much about Introduction to American Law, which is something all schools seem to offer during the first week of the LLM Program. There are also a couple of courses related to tax, criminal law, but nothing too deepened. Although I think it does look good on a resume, I don't think it's worth the 10k investment - I mean, 10k could afford as much as housing for a whole year.

USC, Duke, UC Davis and Berkeley are some of the schools that offer this pre ll-m course - some, in fact, do not cost this much, but it's still expensive.

Also, I just bought a book of Introduction to American Law that should help me quite a bit.

Bottomline - does a 4 week course look outstanding enough to pay this much? Especially when you have an actual LLM degree from UCLA, for instance?

Thanks again for your message!

yeah, good point. i think the book's good enough. 10k is definitely not worth it - as you said, it is almost a whole year's acco cost. and whts the point of studying the same program again as part of ur course?

nope, im pretty clear i wont take these courses.

Can you tell me the name of the book u got?

I think is a waste of time. you spend lots of money for nothing. You will get everything you need in your llm. Save money, if you really want to do something, take same advances classes in english
