Advice for a UK applicant


n.l.l.

Hello,

I've recently started considering an LLM in the US, and I've found it difficult to get an idea of what sort of standard law schools look for in British applicants- can anybody offer any help/ guidance?

You might want to be a bit more specific in this: what kind of law schools would you consider applying to? (in terms of rankings) There are no generic standards but an oversimplification may be attempted if we know what you're aiming at. Also, a short enumeration of your credentials might also help?

Of course - I'm considering NYU and Harvard primarily. I would also be interested in Columbia, but they don't seem very keen on people coming straight from an LLB. Really, I would only go to the US if I got in to a top school.

I am in my penultimate year of my LLB this year, I'm studying abroad and I'm taking part in a prestigous moot court competition. In England, I'm at a top 5 university, I will probably graduate with a 2.1 (which I thought may impact on my chances of getting in, if they look at people with firsts primarily?). I have a reasonable amount of extra-curriculars at uni; I've done mooting, served as a representative for my class, been involved in sports teams. I also have a leadership qualification.

Although this post is old, but I will like to know if you applied to Columbia and what uni did you eventually get into. I am in my final year of my LLB and I was also considering applying to Columbia but I noticed just like you did they are not too keen on taking fresh graduates. What do you advice?
