Thanks a lott. Also do you have any idea about the shifts of the programs ? I mean full time-Part time. Both of them approved by ABA and New York Bar Examiners right ?

Anyone knows about the Skills requirement for LLM 2018 students? How will students fill that new requirement, will the universities allow us to do more credits and will send us the pathway 1 certification?
This is an extract from Georgetown's website:

SKILLS COMPETENCY REQUIREMENT

In December 2015, the New York Court of Appeals adopted a Skills Competency Requirement for admission to the New York Bar. However, this requirement does not apply to foreign-trained lawyers who need an LL.M. to establish bar eligibility until the class beginning LL.M. studies in 2018.(Note that this is a requirement for admission and not for bar exam eligibility.)

Where did you complete your undergraduate legal studies? If you completed your undergraduate legal studies from a school that teaches the common law (e.g. England, Australia, New Zealand), you can take the New York Bar - if you did not, your LL.M. from NUS will not make you eligible.
