I don't think Rutgers offers an LLM. Please correct me if I'm wrong...

you can work only for such duration as may be permitted by the school; and that too mostly only as a part of your internship. usually, you should take it that you cannot work while you are pursuing LL.M for earning purposes;

after your LL.M you are allowed to work for one year in USA as a part of OPT. the stay can be extended if you are hired by any US employer who may be willing to sponsore your H-1B visa

What is the best choice for a foreign law graduate, who is having 16 years of active experience in legal field and who wish to join the main stream of law related job in the State of New Jersey. I have been searching a lot, but the existing rules are very strict which does not give much career path to foreign law graduates. Any help or suggestion is appreciated.

I have not received any suggestions. So I have made some research and found out two options. One is MS in health from Seaton Law school from Newark or MS in criminal justice from Rutgers. Could any one suggest on the job options for both.
