Thanks!

I'm pretty sure that Berkeley, as well as all the other universities I've heard about, uses to grant merit-based scholarship to outstanding candidates/applicants. I hope to get one, along with beeing admitted of course, otherwise it will be difficult to afford the whole tuitions + life expenses cost...let's wait and see. wish you the best of luck with your application!

but there is some rumor that we must choose the thesis-track LLM program, in order to get scholarship...is it true? Is the thesis-track program eligible for NY bar exam? Thanks

Hello,

I'm pretty sure that Berkeley LLM qualifies for NY Bar. This is because a friend of mine who did her LLM there was expecting her result of NY Bar by the time we last talked. And she graduated her LLB from a civil law country.

Hope this helps.

As far as I'm aware, you won't be eligible for the NY Bar Exam if you choose for the thesis track. I graduated from Berkeley in '07 and I remember people taking the thesis track not being able to sit for the NY Bar, because of the following definition:

"Professional Law Subjects The credits must be in "professional law subjects." Generally, most courses that are typically taught in an approved law school qualify as "professional law subjects." Non-law courses will not be counted towards the 20 credits. The Board also does not count "directed research" or "independent study" as part of the 20 credits but applicants are free to take such credits over and above the 20 credits in professional law subjects required by the rule."
