Best Career Resouces for LLM


blink182
Anyone have any comments on the best and worst career centres for LL.M. students at these law schools? Are they actually helpful in getting hired as an attorney (whether in the US or back home)? I have seen the JD rankings and career outcomes which have been interesting but I would like to know thoughts on career directors, alumni, interviews, resources, etc of LL.M. programs.

I think this would be useful for choosing a law school as we all need to decide soon.

I have been interviewing various current students and from what I have heard so far, Northwestern and UVA have decent career resources. All the Western coast law schools in the T14 but maybe not Stanford are lacking. I have heard Georgetown's is notoriously poor as is UCLA, USC, and Berkeley Law.

Any comments on this? The more information, the better; even if you have just heard as a fact from friends. UPenn and U of Chicago? What about NYU and Columbia?

Hi blink182! This is one of the main things I'm considering to decide which program I'll attend.

I've heard good things about UPenn's career services. I'd like to choose their program, but I haven't heard from them yet, regarding financial aid. Right now, I'm between Michigan and UVA, but I didn't find information about them on this matter.

Anyone know the figures for LLM graduates hired in the US? I'm sure it is low.

And thanks, dnunes, for your input. I think that this information is very very important and still very difficult to come by.

Everyone I know taking LL.M.'s raves at NYU's career services. A few say that CLS sucks here, at least for LL.M's.
