I earned my JD from SMU and practice in Dallas (About to start an LLM at Georgetown). If you plan to work in Dallas, SMU is the best place to get your LLM. The school is totally plugged into the Dallas legal community. All the major firms hire from SMU. The catch is that the farther you get from Dallas, the less the SMU degree means.

If you are certain you want to practice in Dallas, then go there. If in doubt, consider University of Texas LLM program.

BTW -- Dallas has a surprisingly broad international practice.

Thanks for your reply Dave.
Do you have any idea whether the law firms or corporates in Dallas sponsor visa and hire foreign nationals who do LLM in international and comparative law from SMU?

If you are planning to have a career in US, it is better to do the 2 year JD program for international lawyers, provided by some universities, instead of the 1 year LL.M. The 1 year LL.M. is virtually useless, when it comes to finding employment in the U.S. However, if you are planning to go go back to your home country, then doing LL.M. is fine.

Hey I know a lot of people who have found employment in US after going to mid ranked universities and not spending as much as living in New York or California so it depends per se on networking and other skills,dont call it an useless degree.

People with J.D. Degrees are finding hard to get job, with a LL.M. it is much harder, especially if you need visa sponsorship. There may be minuscule number of people who might have found jobs based on their LL.M. I am telling it is virtually useless from the employment perspective, it is based on my experience.
