jd without llm


adws

could anyone please kindly explain this to me
1.Can I apply for JD without apply for LLM (I mean, jump to the JD after obtain LLB) ? If I can, how many years does it take?
2.Are there any courses that let me complete both JD and LLM in one course? If there are, how many years does it take? Does this course require another LLM before apply first?
3.Normally, JD require three years to study, right? Are there any method that let me complete JD in one or two years?

sorry for bad English and thanks in advance.

1. Yes
2. 3 years. If you have a JD, the LLM is useless besides Tax.
3. You can find some 2 year JD's, for example at Northwestern or other less reknown Uni's.

Keep in mind that the LL.M. and the J.D are two separate programs with different objectives. No use to have both.

Sorry, I don't know about LLD...

A J.D will be useful if you wish to work in the US. It's usually a 3 year program but some universities started opening "accelerated" JD's a couple of years ago, notably Northwestern. Basically you'll have to sit the LSAT and file an application.

The LL.M. will enable you to gain exposure to US law or other courses in international law, lawyering, etc. But since the market is still quite bad, you will probably have to go back to work in your home country, even if you go to Columbia, Harvard, etc. For this degree, you only need to file an application.

Good luck!

To give you a better idea it goes like this :
1. JD (3 years or 2 years by exception)
2. LLM (1 year)
3. SJD (equivalent to Phd I think)

There are many "reasonable" schools, but it's not easy to be accepted. Try to study in the best law school you can get into.

Public universities like the University of Texas or UC Berkeley will probably a bit cheaper than private ones, but you need to check the websites.

I believe LL.M. is useful for foreign lawyers who wish to take the Bar exam of various states in the U.S.

1. Yes
2. 3 years. If you have a JD, the LLM is useless besides Tax.
3. You can find some 2 year JD's, for example at Northwestern or other less reknown Uni's.
