LLM in NYU or Columbia?


mira

Hi!!!! I finished this year my LLM from a top 10 Law School. I also did a 3 month internship in a top 5 Law School. Im gonna begin working soon. I have no significant work experience before except for the 3 month internship and the work that Im gonna begin in few weeks. I wanna apply for another LLM. Do you think my chances are good if I wanna be admitted in NYU or Colmubia? Do they have a 2 year work requirement experience? Thanks!

From what i know,

Columbia seems to be anal about the work experience requirement

NYU not so.

Of course, I only know this from third party sources, so take it from what it's worth.

Interalia is right. CLS has made quite a few exceptions from time to time, but as a general principle, CLS is a lot more strict about admitting people with sufficient work experience (which they tend to define as 2 years or more) than NYU usually is.

Just out of curiousity, do you know whether upenn or chicago requires substantial work experience as well. I'm currently on a LLM which focuses on legal philosophy, but would like another which focuses on developing quantitative skills. Upenn or chicago seem to be possibilities but I'm kind of worried about the work experience requirements.

I'm less vell-versed with U of Chicago and UPenn, but from the little I've heard, they do seem to place some emphasis on work experience, particularly the former. Of course, on the assumption you're sure you want to do an LLM, the only loss on your end in applying for all of these universities notwithstanding their emphasis on work experience is time (and a relatively small application fee), so you should apply nonetheless. This is especially since all of the universities have made exceptions for candidates that they deem exceptional.
