Hi!
I am planning to apply for LLM program in this year.
Do I need to take the LSAT for applying for an LLM program?

No you don't. At least I didn't take it. You can easily check the admissions criteria from webpages of those universities you intend to apply to (e.g. www.yale.law.edu or www.harvard.law.edu).

Thanks!! Tmalmine.

Have you already applied for a LLM program?

Would be good if you can help me some input on the Admission procedure.

Here's a brief of my background...
I am a indian National. I have done my LLB and Masters in Labour Law & Labour welfare.

I have been in independent practice at the Mumbai High Court in India for 9 years.

I plan to enroll for a LLM program in the US or UK.

I am particularly keen on applying to Yale, Harvard, Standford and Duke.
Thanks!! Tmalmine.

Well, I can say a few words about Yale and Harvard (don't know much about Stanford and nothing 'bout Duke). The basic requirements for an admission are: two glowing recommendation letters (from your former professors, preferably), minimum of 250/300 (preferably, over 270) from the TOEFL-test, one or two superb essays (usually a personal statement and a research proposal), your law school and other university diplomas (with excellent grades), and good luck. But you definitely need to look at each university's webpages to find out the exact requirements, dead-lines, and application forms. If you plan to enroll in the Fall of 2007, you should begin to work in earnest next summer. Ordering diplomas, asking for recommendations, and writing essays takes time, so start early. Well, hopefully you got the idea. If you have more specific questions, I'll be happy to answer them.

P.s. there are many Indian nationals contributing to this board. They will certainly know more about applying for an American university from India. Follow the discussion.
