LL.M. Rankings

Most of the rankings that are available online rank law schools according to their J.D. programs (e.g. U.S. News). Interestingly, this resource ranks schools specifically according to their LL.M. programs:

While rankings are a good way to gauge a school's caliber, they must nonetheless be taken with a grain of salt, and should not be made the primary determining factor in choosing a school.

Don't fall for those so called "LLM rankings".

By publishing those rankings those admisson conultants just want to sell their services.

They know they can't place anyone into Yale and that's probably why Yale doesn't appear (except for academia). No one would ever doubt that an LLM from Yale has much more prestige that from any other school listed (expect Harvard, which is in the same league).

That could be very well true. Again, this is just a survey, and it should not be the determining factor for people's decision to attend a school. Take it with a grain of salt, but I would not say that it is totally false or baseless. And I certainly do not advise asking for professional assistance when applying for a postgraduate degree. Applicants must prepare their essays, etc. on their own. Be that as it may, you may also want to look at other surveys or rankings online. I only referred to this one in particular because it's the first time I've seen a ranking based on the LL.M. program and not on the J.D. counterpart.

Sorry, didn't want to be rude. There's actually another "ranking" by a company like this: auap.com/llm.html , which puts Cornell in the top spot and ranks Harvard as no. 5 only. Funny.
