New York LLM

Guys, can you let me know what you think a good LLM in New York City is? With one caveat, I don't think I can get into either Columbia or NYU. Would be nice if there were other options, maybe not as good but solid, and hopefully good in terms of lower tuition rates!

Hi, Fordham Law School has a solid program on Banking & Finance Law, but the tuition is pretty much the same as in Columbia or NYU.

Hi,

At NYC, you have Fordham, New York Law School, Brooklyn Law School and also Cardozo/Yoshiva. But all those Law School are not as well ranked than Columbia or NYU.

So if you goal is to sit the NY bar, you no need to do an LLM in the state of NY, you only need to do an LL.M. in any ABA law school.
So you could consider to apply:
- To other Top14 Law School (Ann Arbor, Berkeley, Cornell, Duke, Georgetown, Northwestern, UPenn, UVA).
- To other Top 20 Law schools more generous with the scholarships (Texas Austin, UCLA, USC)
- To other law schools with cheaper tuition or interesting location (Buffalo, Boulder, Pepperdine, ...)

But if you concern is to attend a school in the state of NY, keep in mind that outside NYC you have many law schools like Buffalo, Cornell, Syracuse (and maybe Albany?).
