What do you mean by " based on credits?

Did you mean grade like B+ or something?

or you earned Credits?

Can you give me an idea?

Northwestern University School of Law recently offered the 2 year JD Program. Once accepted for the LLM Program, it would be possible to apply for the JD Program. In most law schools, there is no official policy that would allow LLMs to transfer to the JD Program. However, in exceptional cases, it may be possible. The admissions policy would vary though. If this is allowed, the admissions officer would take into consideration one's academic performance in the LLM Program if that person indicates an intention to pursue a JD after his or her LLM year.

Allthough the process is highly competitive, USC is now allowing its LLM sudents to transfer to USC JD program without a need of taking LSAT test at all. You will be able to transfer all eligible units from LLM to JD program and most likely will complete your JD in additional 2 years of studying.

You can also try to transfer-out, to other Law Schools, in that case a roof of good scores on your LSAT test will be definitely required.

I know that Washing Univeristy at St. Louis gives 5 LLM students scholarships to transfer to the JD program with no requirement of LSAT. I know 2 friends who've successfully completed JD through this route and one of them is working in a big firm in NY now.

I've heard Vanderbilt does LLM-JD transfer every year to a couple of students with academic excellence.

From last year, USC has also started the transfer option with no requirement of LSAT.

Thanks for the info. Regarding the schools listed under B: If LSAT is required anyway, what exactely is gained by a "transfer" from the LLM to the JD program? Will the admission requirements be lowered in my favour, or won't there be any actual difference between me and some other random JD applicant?

Are you sure LSAT is required for internal transfer at CLS? (Not indicated in the LLM section of their website pertaining to transfer to the JD program)

GW requires the LSAT to transfer, I know because I was among the first to go through this process. Also, if you want to practice in the US, my advice after doing the LLM (and then transferring to the JD) is go and study really hard for the LSAT and do a JD.

I earned my LL.M from University of Hawaii . William S Richardson school of law and pretty much sure that after LL.M student can ask for transferring to JD. School will count your earned JD subjects . All you need is B+ in LL.M . No LSAT needed .
