UK or USA?

Nikolas,
Please take notice that S. 520.3 and 520.6 requires a total of 3 years undergraduate experience both substantively and durationally. A 2-year LLB followed by a 1 year LLM would NOT suffice, however, a 3-year LLB does. I have a 3-year LLB from London and qualified (and passed) the NY BAR exam in Feb 04. Therefore, I can fully guarantee that a 3-year LLB is all you would need. Hope this helps.

I may be biased - I did my undergraduate LLB at UCL and I will most probably be going to Harvard this August for my LLM. But think that UCL is probably more prominent in the UK and internationally than Tulane's prominence in the US and internationally. As between US v UK LLM, it really depends on your individual situation.

Hope this helps.

I went to UCL as a visitng student from a US law school last summer, and now I am torn between staying in the States for my LLM or going to London.

Here are a few things that might help you decide...
1. Course Offerings- you might be able to take more classes in a US program than you would in the UK.
2. Where are you planning to practice when you are finished? Think about networking opportunities, the value of international experience in the field you will enter, and things of that nature.
3. Money! Tuition is so much more affordable in the UK.
4. London is perhaps the greatest city in the world.

I don't know how much help I have been since I am struggling with the same decision. Best of luck to you!

Although the LLM in the UK is more affordable there are few employers' who would not be impressed by a CV that has an American LLM on when the individual resides in a jurisdiction where tuition fees are cheaper.

Although it is elitist an American LLM is available subject to an individual's capacity to pay even more so than on an LLM in the UK.

If the offer is there for you to begin an LLM at a reputable US University I would accept it.

I just finished my BA in history at an American University and am considering getting my LLB or LLM in the U.K. Basically i need to know which degree would be best if i decided to return to the states to practise law.

According to a previous post one needs a 3yr LLB degree in order to take the NY bar, but many U.K. schools offer 2yr LLB or LLM 'qualifying conversion courses' for people who already have a bachelors degree in a non-law subject. So in short which would be the best course to follow to come out being eligible to practise law in both the U.K. and the U.S?...attending a U.K. university for a regular 3yr LLB, or 2yr 'conversion' LLB or LLM.
