Hi, I would like to know which LLM do you think is most valued in the US labor market, for someone who wants to get into M&A, an LLM in corporate law or an LLM in financial law?

Thank you

I would lean toward corporate law, but I suppose it depends on what exactly you want to do in M&A, and in what capacity you'd work (for a law firm, internal legal team, etc.)

Maybe check on LinkedIn to find profiles of similar professionals who are doing jobs you'd be looking to do? Check to see if they have LLMs and if so they may specify the actual degree.
