Cornell LLM in Law, Technology, and Entrepreneurship vs Duke LLM in Law & Entrepreneurship


Rico 1990
Does anybody have any thoughts about how these two programs compare?

Cornell LLM in Law, Technology and Entrepreneurship
Duke LLM in Law & Entrepreneurship

I would like to use an LLM to transition to legal consulting aimed at startups. I like the Cornell program because it's in New York but I am open to the Duke program too. Other options I should consider?

Both programs are good from what I have heard, you should compare the professors' resumes, the class sizes and the class offerings in the specific fields you are interested in before choosing one. Both schools are at rather boring places (Cornell is in Ithaca, NY, not "in New York", it is actually a 4-hour ride from New York City), but Duke is slightly better ranked in the US News overall ranking.

Generally agree with Schatz.

FYI I believe the Cornell program is actually offered at Cornell Tech, which is indeed in NYC:

Thanks for the info! I'm leaning toward Cornell because of its reputation, it's an Ivy League school after all. I'll do as you suggested though, compare professors, classes, etc. That's a good idea.
