LLM USA - No.1


arzt05
regarding following factors:

1. law school ranking
2. attractiveness of law school (city and/or campus)
3. tuition fee, degree of strength etc..

which US-law school would you recommend?

I do not necessarily want to study at a top 15 law school (but still a very good one, at least top 15-100), I'd rather prefer to enjoy my llm-year a little and have time to travel and party in a nice city or a beautiful campus as well.

What do you think would be a good choice, please let me know!

Thank you.

I'm from Germany and feel the same way. :-) But I am still planning on applying to Top 15 schools.

The ones outside the top 15 are BU and George Washington.

I'd recommend a campus school for what you are looking for. Maybe with a strong athletic program so you can enjoy some serious tailgating. I like the Midwest (Big Ten) schools, for example Ohio State, Indiana, Minnesota etc. They tend to be a tad cheaper than the East coast schools, are well known and with decent qualification one might get some funding.

Good luck with everything!

What do you think makes the difference btw the US and the UK? All I can see is, UK is about a third of the tuition fees in the US (e.g. Glasgow Uni 3.500 pounds). I´d love to go to the US, but who can afford 15.000 bucks a year besides other expenses??
I guess Ohio etc won´t be less than 10.000 a year.
Scholarships won´t be realistic (I have Befriedigend instead of VB).
Have you done TOEFL or IELTC?

For me it's a personal decision. I am just a US guy, have spent some time there and the UK is simply no alternative. Certainly, if you look at the financial aspects and make that your priority, it has to be an option. I am hoping for/planning on some scholarships, financial aid etc.

Louisiana State University has a good program and offers substantive tuition waiver. Also, Florida Coastal School of Law has a good LLM online. The program is aimed to those interested to write the Bar Exam. Tuition is reasonable ($13000). Good luck.

13.000 is a good price really.
I might apply for a few schools and see where they want me or not.

do you think Canada could be an option? UBC Vancouver, Uni Toronto etc.?

Sure Canada is an option but it all depens on what you want to achieve. For immigration purposes, Canada is much easier to get permanent residency than in the USA. Having said, if you want to practice in Canada then you will have to write several exams and maybe do 1 1/2 years of studies (LLB level). It all depens of where you graduated from (Common law or civil law country, etc.). I have been practicing in Canada for 15 years and I am deciding to go the US since the salaries are much better with much lower income tax rates. I want to give it a try in the US. All the best to you.
