NYU - Traditional LLM or Corporation Law LLM


lloydy

Hi guys,

I'm currently in my final year studying Law in the UK and I intend to apply for the LLM at NYU starting in Fall 2014. My queries are as follows:

1) Is it "harder" to get in through the Corporation law route rather than traditional route?

2) Should the Traditional option be "easier", what difference does it make? Aren't we allowed to just pick whatever module/subject anyway during our LLM, so I could do the traditional version and just pick corporate stuff?

I'm very passionate about studying corporation law although I would not apply for the specific program if I have greater chances of being taken on the traditional route!

Also, could anyone who has done a law degree in the UK prior to obtaining an LLM in the US get in touch with me please? Regardless of the university !

Thanks :)

I don't know if it in practical terms makes any difference. I think the questions you should be asking of yourself is that what do you want your LL.M to be? Do you want it to be specialization in corporate law or LL.M with focus on corporate law. The traditional law program gives you little bit more freedom in selecting your classes and the corporate law program does limit your choices a bit, but this is somewhat minimal. Also you should think about the application itself. It might be somewhat easier to state your interest and write a motivation letter if you are applying specifically to croporation LLM that being your primary field of interest.
