Applying for second LL.M. at HLS


Hi everyone ! I am doing an LLM at NYU this year and just wonder if it is possible for me to apply for a second LLM at HLS. I know that HLS's website states that they rarely accept applicants who already have LLM from any other US law schools. But I've still heard there is a chance also. So how does HLS actually consider to accept the kind of person likes me?

How about other top five law schools like CLS, Chicago, Stanford and Yale?

Thank you very much.

Hello,

Is there a reason why you want to do a second LL.M.? If you are just thinking about studying more and money is not a particular issue I would suggest you to enroll into a J.D. program. There are schools that would gladly take you and offer a J.D. program in 2 years. However at that point you are a "J.D. student" and you have real chances to get a job in the US.
Harvard process is very selective I believe they take a couple of students from each country and having an LL.M. from NYU will not help you in fact they give preference to students coming from outside the US rather than from another LLM program.
Hope this helps.
