i think Oxford has a 2 year BA (LLB) for people who already hold a law degree from somewhere else, subject of course to the courses covered in the first one. You could find out more...

Northwestern and the University of Kansas are the ones I know of here in the US that offer a 2 year JD. I believe that Southwestern University Law School In Los Angeles also has a two year JD program for everybody who wishes to apply for it. By the way, if you are a licensed foreign attorney you are eligible to take the California bar exam without any further legal education in the US.

Here is the information you are requesting:

http://calbar.ca.gov/calbar/pdfs/admissions/sf_legal-edu-outside-us.pdf

It is very simple. If you are a licensed attorney in your home country, you are eligible to take the California bar examination without any further legal education. If you pass you are a California attorney. You do not need a JD or LL.M to take the California bar and become a California attorney. All you need is your license to practice law in India. Understand though that without any further legal education in the US, although you would be a California attorney, you probably would not be educationally qualified with only an LL.B from India to take the bar in any other state. Additionally, being a licensed attorney in California does not give you the legal right to work in the US. You would still need to get some type of work visa to remain in the US to work. As an attorney that may not be very easy to do. The best way to get a visa to work in the US is to become a nurse. In addition to the bar exam you would also have to take and pass the MPRE exam. Good luck.

Rutgers University School of Law also offers the 2 year JD. Possibly UPenn for LLM students wishing to continue on to a second and third year.

It is California Western that has a 2 year JD as well. It takes only 2 years because you have 3 trimesters all year. Normal JDs just do 2 semesters so you have the summer off.

Basically, a 2 year degree means non-stop for 2 years. Don't expect a break.
