NY: LLM at Fordham, Cardozo or Brooklyn Law School?


JayBe

Hello,
I got accepted into the three law schools and I find it very difficult to decide. I plan to take the bar exam and to work in NY (at least for 1-2 years). How important are school rankings for potential employers/law firms? What other aspects should I consider?

Thank you!

Hi, Cardozo LL.M. in IP graduate here.

The answers to all your questions depend on the following: (1) what specialty you are pursuing, (2) what experience do you already have, and (3) what results are you looking for - do you already have a job secured or are you looking to use school resources to be hired.
Each of those school offers very different advantages (and disadvantages), so you need to know what your plan is, then research to see which one will help you get there.
