Any views on applying directly to a Law School vis a vis going through the LSAC process (apart from it being cheaper). Does the Transcript Service have any benefit?

Also, is the Columbia Law School online application out? I checked the website but it does not show up.

Dear all,

I have already finished my LLM at LSE, UK. However, I always wanted to study in the USA and was wondering what do you guys think about doing another LLM at Harvard. My main interest in the long run is academia.

Is anyone applying for their second LLM?

Thank you

Hi,

Though HLS requires a minimum score of 100 (TOEFL ibt), how does the admission council treat applications which do not meet the minimum requirement. My toefl score is 99 and I have a good overall profile. What are the chances of being considered for admission?

Any insight is most welcome.

Thanks

Hello everyone!

So I have one LLM from Leiden University (Adv. LLM in Public International law). I am planning to apply to top US Law schools to study ADR and business law. Here's my selection as of now:
1) Harvard 2) Columbia 3) Yale 4) Stanford.

I indicated these four Universities in TOEFL score receipt option. Now I want to choose two out of the above list. Any thoughts?

Good luck with application process everyone!

Hi everyone!

Anyone have tips on how to complete the Career Goals and Academic Interests section of the application? Does this have to be very detailed or just a sentence or two about interests and goals? I feel these questions are already addressed in my personal statement, that's why I'm confused what detail these questions require.

Thank you!

Thanks for your input ladyjustice. That's what I was thinking as well, but it says there is a 1500 character limit. That's why I was confused. If they just wanted one sentence I would assume the character limit would be much less. My one sentence response is currently 82 characters, but perhaps that is sufficient.

if it already covers the whole thought you want to express, it would be fine. the instruction says maximum of 1500 characters. i will make it a brief but concise sentence. are you done with the preceeding two questions?

Ok. I figure I can keep it short and sweet since I explain this in my personal statement.

For the first two questions, I've finished a draft of the essays, but the legal issue part is nowhere near finished.

How about you? Are you a US JD by the way?

Hi Tamar,

I am a lawyer too. My field is arbitration, litigation and ADR. If you want to pursue an LLM in ADR you should consider also Peperdine Law school, NYU, Georgetown and Florida. Yale and Stanford are great schools but I would say that Yale is more for teachers and researchers and Stanford for IP expertise.

Hey guys,

In an effort to avoid working on my personal statement, I thought I'd come to the discussion board as a good way to procrastinate. :)

Anyone want to share general topics they are writing about for the legal essay? I'll be the first: my general topic is analyzing reforms of international financial institutions.

Anyone else want to share just for fun/ procrastination?

Dear llm-ette,

Finding myself in a severe procrastination mood, I decided to reply to your post and join the boat :D. I am writing about social rights vs. human rights, well trying to write :p. I've already had an LLM in Europe, could you procrastinate a little and tell me what do you think for the second LLM idea? If you need any other insight info on the LLM, pm me.

Cheers,
Chikki

Hi there,

I'm up for any excuse to procrastinate. It's one of the things I do best. :) Your essay topic sounds interesting. In terms of doing a second LLM, I don't have much insight, but I know that Harvard rarely admits students if they already have an LLM from a school in the US.

From the website:
"Harvard Law School is rarely able to accept into its LL.M. program anyone who already holds or is pursuing an LL.M. or equivalent degree from another law school in the United States."

What's your reason for doing a second LLM in the US?

Hi there again,

I got a LLM from LSE, United Kingdom and I want to do another one in Harvard. I have enough reasons which I will state in the personal statement.

Good luck :)
