Corporate Law: NYU vs. Chicago


Rio-Brazil

Dear all,

Help me out here! I've got admissions on both, and I just can not decide between them. I've already read a lot of threads, and I could find out that Columbia would be the best option for corporations because of Cofee and the entire strong faculty. However, I've got no response back from CLS yet. Thus, I need some arguments in regard of NYU vs. CHICAGO. Which one is in the second position for corporate law and closer to CLS? To be honest with you, I had made the choice to go to NYU, but when I read the NYU vs. CLS thread, I felt a little unsecured. Is it that bad taking the Corporation LL.M. from NYU? I know NYU is the best for International Law and Tax, but its corporation LL.M. is at least among the best (top 5) in US? Is William Allen a good professor or not at all???

Please help me with this. Thank you very much!!!

I'm advising you to take Chicago. Law and Economic with Posner and the rest. Take Chicago and do it soon or you might lose the offer.

I agree with Juggernaut, NYU is a very good law school but in Corporate it is very weak.
Go for UChicago, Posner & Co. are "one in a kind" professors and you won't regret the choice!

NYU is weak in Corporate Law???

Don't be ridiculous!

I would say that there are 4 law schools with superb credentials in Corporate and Commercial: HLS, SLS, Columbia and NYU...

Guys, do not hesitate - NYU is obvious choice! Not Chicago!

Thank you, folks!

Please, could someone shed some more light on this thread! I do know that Eric Posner is awesome and Chicago is the best for Law & Economics! But, are the programs for someone who is going to focus on corporate law about the same level? Or, Chicago is a way better on this field?
I am not sure, but I feel some people are underestimating NYU's Corporate Law LL.M.? Is my impression right or not?
I need more help!!!

If you are really asking the question then go for NYU, pay your fee and get your degree... If you want to be a wannabe go to NYU, however, if you are prepared for tough studying come to Chicago... NYU will definitely be easier and, maybe, more fun but Chicago is the real thing...

Although the corporate Law of NYU is very good, I think you will have no chance to exchange any idea with the professor together with 400+ LLM student. If you want to do some academic research thing, NYU is not wise choice. As somebody mentioned above, the credential is good but......

Well, NYU admits 450 LL.M. students for 9 programms. Students are distributed equally among the programms..

It means that NYU has approximately 50 LL.M. students in Corporate Law....

That's ture. They do have "major". However, LLMs are free to choose any course in law school. Please notice the fact that the better the professor is, the more students will choose that course regardless the major. They do have 400+LLM! I just want to take the resouce distribution into consideration, which is very important for smebody who want to have a interactive way of learning on corporate course.:)

Why do you think corporate law is good at UPenn.

Not saying it isn't, just curious as to why you think it is?

Cheers.

Maybe I can anwser your question. UPenn has a very good corporate law prestige because of its outstanding corporate law faculty and cooperation with whartorn, which is a famous for its MBA, corporate governance and corporate financing. Some of the Professors not only teach corporate law in law school but also have second appointment in wharton. Anyway, I think nodulbtably corporate law in UPenn is prestigious.

Absolutely, it's like Northwestern with Kellogs.
