LLM in IP with Spring admission


Hi everyone,

I graduated in Switzerland and I'm looking to do an LLM in the USA in 2020. Thing is: it is too short to apply for fall 2019 and I'm not available in spring 2021. I'm therefore looking to do an LLM during spring and fall 2020.

So far I have found three possibilities:
- The University of Berkeley and their LLM Hybrid Option, anyone has some feedback?
- The George Washington University, it seems possible to start in spring, but I am not sure
- Suffolk University, but it does not seem that well recognized, does it?

Do you know any good LLM in Intellectual Property (or an LLM in Arts & Entertainment Law or something in Tech Law) with the possibility to start in spring? I would love to take your recommendation!

Kind regards,

Pat

The Berkeley hybrid option is a bit different from a typical one-year, full-time LLM program. Look into the structure and see how it looks to you.

It does look like GWU's LLM program offers spring admission:

However, you still have plenty of time (relatively speaking) to apply for fall 2019 - For the GW fall intake, for example, the deadline is mid-March.

Thanks for the answer ChickenSoup!

The Berkeley Hybrid option is indeed a bit different and I like the structure, but I don't know if it is as well recognized as a "traditional" full-time LLM.

After further research, it seems that Loyola Los Angeles, Santa Clara and Pepperdine Law also offer an LLM in with spring admission.

Indeed I still have some time but I do not have any TOEFL or IELTS score yet and would like to take time to study to make the best score possible.

Thanks for the help,

Pat

What do you mean by 'recognized?' I think that potential future employers wouldn't see much difference, to be honest.
