Hello

Does anyone could help me to find any official or unofficial ranking of Securities/Financial Regulation LLM?

Also, is there any ranking of corporate law or insurance law LLM?

THANK YOU VERY MUCH

From my understanding, there are no official ranking of LLM programs. Indeed, US News & World report only ranks JD programs. So, if you're a foreign student looking for some legitimacy, then Id suggest you attend a top law school (top 20). If youre a U.S. student with a J.D., Id simply attend a school that has the right program for you. Large firms will only look at your J.D. school and put very little emphasis on your LLM school, unless, of course, youre a foreign student.

For example, I have a J.D. from a top 20 law school and am attending a fourth tier law school for my LLM in taxation. Good luck

I heard HLS has a special LLM program called international finacial system, and Duke Law School is femous for its securities law; New York Law School noted for its corporation law as well as international tax law. From my point of view, if your are students other than Americans you'd better choose a top 20 Law School for the porpuse that you can attend the Bar exam of some states.

I am not aware of any rankings for LL.M. What I suggest that you bear in mind, however, is that you want to be in a program that is neither too big (where students receive little personal attention) nor too small (where you get to know only few people). Our program at Duke has just the right size (about 80 people), which means that me and my friends receive a lot by way of personal assistance from our professors and yet - get to know many people, from all over the world. The program has definitely opened dorrs for me and for many of my coursemates.
