Gud Luck!! :)
That's awesome!

I always wish to work with the UN. I might want to take up International and Comparative Law in the LLM.

As of now, I am still searching for a job here in Maryland particularly in Baltimore Area. I have a degree in Political Science and Master in Public Administration.

I always dream of working with the Federal Government in the future :) Hahaha!

Hi,

I' am also a law graduate from the Philippines. I saw this thread and found it to be very informative.

Have you already enrolled for your LLM? What were the requirements?

I hope to receive a reply from you.

Thank you very much.

Hi Cheenee-

It's good to see your reply here. Where did you have your LL.B. in the Philippines? Did you take the the Philippine Bar Exam? I did not apply for LLM for now because I'm waiting for my Permanent Resident (Green Card) status. I will apply as soon as I receive it. There requirements vary from one school of law to the other. You might want to check it out at their website as soon as you decide where to study LLM.

Since when did you arrived in the US? And what state are you living right now?

Keep in touch.

Hi! I've recently finished my JD here in the Philippines and will be marrying my fiancé from Maryland (Germantown) also sometime next year...I'm currently reviewing for the bar but will be moving in to MD as soon as my papers are ready.

I'd like to know how complicated and expensive it is to be able to sit in the bar and practice law there in the US...do you mind sharing your experiences? Aren't there any ABA-accredited school(s) in the Philippines anymore?

I noticed that this post was from 2 years back and I'm thinking maybe you've gone through all that by now. I'd appreciate hearing from you. :)

Thanks!

Hi.

I am a recent graduate of a Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.) in the Philippines. After graduation I left the country to come to the US to marry my fiance. So, i was not able to take the Philippine Bar Exam. Now, I am living Maryland near Baltimore City.

I wanted to be a lawyer in the US in the future. I have inquired into the NY Bar Exam on Foreign Legal Education but its not clear to me if they would allow a foreign law graduate who is NOT a lawyer to sit for the bar.

I wish to know if I have any chance to qualify for the NY Bar Exam even if I am not a lawyer and if there is any possible remedy to the same.

Your thoughts are deeply appreciated. Thank you very much! :) May God bless you all.

I have a question, with the new rules of NY bar (the 2 yr requirement) has anyone tried to sit for the bar after more than 2 yrs for completing the LLM degree?
