LL.M for an ABA to French Lawyer Art. 100


eliox31
Hi,

I'm a French Law student at Université Panthéon Sorbonne (Paris I). On September 2018, I will begin the third year of my Licence degree, the last one before graduation. I've already passed the first and the second year. Each year breaks down into two semester, so I have already done four semesters.

I wish apply for the LL.M Program before December 2018, after the next two semesters, to begin the LL.M Program in August or September 2019, as a french fourth year of studies.

To apply, I must upload my transcripts on LSAC.ORG website, but they say here : https://www.lsac.org/jd/applying-to-law-school/cas/requesting-transcripts
"Please wait until you have completed at least six semesters of undergraduate work before requesting transcripts".

How can I fix this matter ? Will it be possible to send the transcripts from the third year after the deadlines to start the LL.M year on September 2019 ?

As I'm 24, I want to work as soon as possible. Doing an LL.M, an ABA (NYBE) and take the equivalence for the lawyer diploma in France seems to be the fastest (2 years less than French procedure).
For this, I've picked few universities for my application and maximise my chances to get in LL.M : Berkeley, George Washington University School of Law, Boston university, Harvard Law School, Brooklyn Law School, Georgetown, UCLA, University of Virginia, Cornell, Penn State Law, Columbia, Stanford, University of Chicago, Yale ! What do you all think about thoses ?

I have a particular background, with a load of work experiences before get in high school (https://www.linkedin.com/in/eliokoubbi/). I think this particular profile could enrich the schools where I pretend to be. I have recommendations from International Legal Council director, Lawyers, Judges, and a french deputy.

What do you all think, will it be possible ? If someone know the requirements for application, some schools says Maîtrise, other says LL.B (equivalence Licence).

Thanks for your responses,

For the six semesters, they're referring to undergraduate work, not your first law degree. You can contact LSAC to make sure. Generally LLM programs require you to have an undergraduate degree, plus a first law degree, to apply.
