Okay, hopefully they have enough slots then. If my memory serves me right CLS isn't assessing on a rolling basis aint it? If so, then you should be fine! :)

Be sure to share the good news with me when you receive the offer! :)

i got rejected from HLS and YLS so I understand how you feel :(

I dont' know why I tried for YLS anyway, its so way out of my league! haha

If I do go ahead with "investing" in a US LLM, I hope it pays off and I can find a job. I think you have the same objectives?

We have a JSD program that is offered via collaborative distance - allowing up to 12 candidates at a time, half of which are reserved for students outside our LLM to create diversity.

We require that the dissertation be published and our JSD coordinator works extensively with the group on this aspect. We allow tha the candidate instead choose not to publish butthen rather than be awarded the degree, he/she is a fellowship student.

The JSD group meets weekly via webcam online to workshop separate from the weekly JSD research and other lectures by the coordinator, as well as sometimes sitting through lectures in our LL.M. program.

Our JSDs have to date been sponsored by their employers, being academic institutions, governments, firms and companies.

The key to find your PhD of law program (LLD, JSD, SJD, D. Phil, etc) is to align your supervisor to the specific question that you will be researching. The supervisor should be well published in that area, because this will influence how your dissertation is inevitably received, the network that you can grow during the four years of research and drafting, your board members etc.

You may find helpful my general information about preparing your research question into a proposal for submission to any doctoral program - the questions that must be addressed in the proposal for any such program. See my blog's PhD/JSD page (google Prof William Byrnes).

What do you think are my chances of getting admitted into a top 14 JSD/SJD program with a British LLM (LSE/UCL)?

Thanks!

Best,

F.

marginally better than non-existent.

But it does make it easier to get accepted to a US LLM

In that scenario I'd rather apply to a US top 14 LLM from the start.
