Family Law / Criminal Law / Gender Studies


msgf

Hi guys!!

I want to pursue a General LLM that qualifies me to sit for the Bar Exam in the US.

Considering that I can tailor my own course of study in the General LLM, I would like to delve deeper into my main areas of interest: Family Law, Criminal Law, and Gender Studies.

I basically applied to the T-14 Law Schools plus Boston University, George Washington, and St. Thomas (Minnesota).

Do you have any thoughts on which program would fit me better given my areas of interest?

I didn't find much information about this niche area of Law and I would like to have some perspective on the matter.

Thank you!

If you want to sit the bar with a specialized llm and a foreign law degree, you’ll need to double check with whatever the state you want to take the bar exam in. Most states that let LLMs sit the bar require very specific courses. If I recall, Vermont will let any ABA accredited llm sit the bar, but very few people bother to go up there to take the test or practice since it’s a very rural state.

jwpetterchak,

My prime goal is to qualify myself to sit for the bar exam. So, I didn't apply to any specialized program, only General/Traditional LLMs. 

However, apart from taking the required courses, I would like to choose take a few classes on my main areas of interest. 

With that in mind, I would like to know which Law Schools (within the ones that I applied) would better fit me.

Now that I'm thinking about it, I shouldn't focus so much on finding a program that has this specialization on Family/Criminal and Gender Studies because most of my credits will be general/required Bar courses. 

Anyway, I'm just trying to create a method to make the decision process easier.
