LLM Competition Law and Intellectuel Property Law


Hello everyone,

I'm really interested in applying for a LLM in the USA. My main interest fields are Competition law and Intellectual Property Law.

In my home country, I am a good student but I don't think that I will be able to go to the top universities like Harvard, Yale, Stanford...

So my question for you is which universities I should apply for, regarding my interest fields.

Hello BelgiumLawStudent. There are several decent programs in this field in the US, it all depends on your personal preferences regarding the surroundings (big city vs. rural campus) and the specific field you are interested in (tech law, fashion or entertainment for example).

Some schools offer a specific IP/compeititon LL.M. program (such as NYU), but I would simply take a closer look at several law schools whether or not they offer such programs. In most "general" LL.M.s, you can freely choose whatever classes you want, so you can create your own program pretty much whereever you go, provided that there are enough interesting classes on offer.

I am an IP litigator and I had the chance to experience both Columbia Law School's and NYU's IP class offerings (you can take a few classes per semester at the other school whether you are at CLS or NYU) and I had a very positive experience of both. On the one hand, NYU's IP and competition offer is slightly broader (in terms of the sheer amount of different classes and seminars), on the other hand CLS features some of the greatest US professors in this field.

In short I would definitely have a closer look at the curriculum of the specific schools you are considering and in particular the CVs of the professors.
