Canadian LLM to US JD?


Oscar99

Hello there,

I'm part way through a LLM at a Canadian law school and am wondering if I can use the degree to gain entry into a JD program in the US. There does appear to be a trend to opening up the standards to some US law schools - e.g., some US LLM programs allowing entry into their JD programs without even writing the LSAT. However, my research suggests that it may not be possible for a Canadian LLM student who is a not a lawyer (no undergraduate JD degree) to participate in this trend. Does anyone have any thoughts/examples?

Does it make to "transfer" to a US online LLM program, if it's even possible?

Thank you.

Don't try to game the system. If you want to work in the US, take the LSAT and apply for a JD like everyone else.
