LLM to JD, unsuccessful results NY bar.


Trinitytp

Hi everyone it is comforting to have access to this forum . I am a dual British/ American citizen. I graduated from Cambridge uni with my first law degree, and decided to proceed to Penn law for my LLM. I have since graduated from penn Law in May, and proceed to sit for the NY bar . Unfortunately I did not succeed and I am torn between reseating the bar or going to start the JD program .

Does anyone know if my credits from the LLM would transfer to the JD program thus making it possible to cover the course over a shorter length of time. If so could you recommend some universities.

Also would any law firm consider my job app without the Bar/ JD.


If I decide to reseat the NY bar does anyone have any tips on tutors or the best way to guaranty success, I am very hard working, I would do whatever it takes, just need options and questions answered.

Thanks

Hi,

I think it would be better if you consult Penn law and ask them if your credits from the LLM would transfer to the JD program.

As far as I know in the University of Chicago, if you did your llm in UChicago then the credits can be transferred to JD.

One thing I am curious about, since I consider applying to UPenn for an LLM, doesn't penn law assist its LLM students on these matters?

Hi, I have decided to ask my mentor at Penn Law, just felt awash with frustration of not making the bar and felt totally ashamed to face him. But have decided to take the bull by the horn and do it..

Thanks.

I think the best choice for you is The University of Arizona. This university offers 3 semesters- JD for international lawyers who hold an LL.B from outside America and an LL.M from America. So in this university you can finish JD in one year and half. And then you will be able to set to any bar exam in the U.S.A. (and Arizona Bar is one of the easiest bars in America).
