Hey everyone,

I'm considering applying to USA law schools for an LLM for 2015. I'm looking for an LLM program that will be a quality program in terms of academics, but in all honesty, I also want to do the LLM to get the USA ''college experience'' and meet people from all over the world within the LLM program. In other words, I'm not looking for a total party school, but I don't want to be in a program where all people do is study all the time!

Any tips on LLM programs that have a good academic quality/social life balance? Do any Ivy Leagues/reknowned law schools fit the ''work hard, play hard'' motto?

Thanks!


Are you sure you can even MAKE it into an Ivy League school?

Am I sure? No. Do I think I have a chance? Yes. I'm at the top of my law school class, have lots of extracurricular activities and will soon be a published author.

Does wanting to do other things than studying from time to time make me sound like an idiot? You might think so, but I've always been a very easy learner and I believe the key to my success is a good balance between studying, working out, getting involved and *gasp* having fun and going out.

Hey Rosie. It would be easier if we knew what you wanna do after LLM or your area of interest/specialization.

What about program in California: some people I know spoke highly of UCLA and USC LL.M programs:
quality schools, both in top 20, good reputation, international atmosphere and lots of fun. And sunny Cali.

How about Berkeley? The location is nice and sunny and it has a good reputation. I could image that there is also a lot of play, but I have never been there so I am not sure. People here should be able to tell you if it has a reputation for a party LLM program.

Thanks guys! I looked into Berkeley but I will also be looking into other programs in California. I'm headed for a law firm career (back home in Canada) after the LLM, and I'm interested mostly in commercial litigation & corporate law.

I hope I expressed myself well in my post; I'm a pretty serious student and the quality of the program is my most important criteria. I know LLMs are demanding programs, but since I'll be working hard on it, might as well have a bit of fun while doing it, you know?

Absolutely. And I think it´s great you know what you want from LLM program, especially since it might be your last school year ever and unique opportunity to live in the US. If I decided based on location, I would go for west coast as well.
Good luck choosing, deciding and applying:)

Hi Kulparashar,

Being two very large countries, it's nearly impossible to compare USA vs Canada in those terms. For instance, New York City will be a lot more expensive than, say, Montreal, but Montreal will be far more expensive than smaller cities in the US. Where in the USA and in Canada would you be interested in studying & working?
