I had the same choice to make last year, and I chose NU only because Duke has not a strong name in the field of international public law and human rights in particular. I can just tell you the LL.M./K. is a terrific program, in some aspects closer to a MBA than to a proper master of laws. The workload is huge, therefore don't listen to the distinction NU v. UoC. It is very unlikely to study more than what you'll be studying here, as long as only 24 hours a day are available... Best of luck with your choice

Overall, I think Duke is way better. Considering the placements, campus, expensem Duke would be a better option. As far as NW is concerned, the llm/kellog program is brilliant, but its very expensive and I'm not sure of the job prospects either.

I will probably choose Duke over NU LLM/Kellogg. Got a significant scholarship from Duke. The difference in financial costs between Duke with scholarship and NU is too big. I will probably pick a few courses from the Fuqua business school at Duke to compensate the MBA feeling I would have at NU

Sometime I find myself proud of my school. We have just received the below e-mail. Hope it helps!

"The National Law Journal (NLJ) has published its 2010 ranking of schools with the highest percentage of 2009 graduates hired by NLJ 250 law firms. I am pleased to share that Northwestern Law holds the No. 1 spot. This is the third consecutive year that we have ranked in the top 5 (we were 5th in 2008 and 2nd in 2007).

The list of go-to schools was compiled from recruiting information that law firms provided on the 2009 NLJ 250, the National Law Journals annual survey of the nations largest law firms. As the article indicates, 2009 saw a definite decline in first-year associate employment at the nations 250 largest law firms, so the percentages are down across the board this year.

[...] This is the second time this year that we have been ranked No. 1 in an employment-based ranking. In the fall, Princeton Review ranked Northwestern Law No. 1 for Best Career Prospects.

[...]

For your information, the top 15 law schools are (percent hired by NLJ 250 in parentheses):

1. Northwestern Law (55.9)
2. Columbia Law School (54.4)
3. Stanford Law School (54.1)
4. University of Chicago (53.1)
5. University of Virginia (52.8)
6. University of Michigan (51)
7. University of Pennsylvania (50.8)
8. New York University (50.1)
9. University of California, Berkeley (50)
10. Duke Law School (49.8)
11. Harvard (47.6)
12. Vanderbilt (47.1)
13. Georgetown (42.8)
14. Cornell (41.5)
15. University of Southern California (41.3)"
