No news here either from Stanford. Received a notice that my application was complete a few months ago but have not heard anything from Stanford since.

I have applied to SLS, HLS and CLS. Got admitted to Columbia through early review but getting into Stanford would definitely be a dream come true.

I have understood that the LL.M. program at SLS takes 30 students (15+15). However, does anybody know how many LL.M. applications Stanford gets on average? I know that getting into SLS is extremely hard but it would be great to have some kind of info on what the odds are. Thanks! Lets keep our collective fingers crossed!

Hi there!

Since my main area of interest is intellectual property rights, Stanford is definitely my number one choice and I would turn down HLS/CLS for Stanford. I think that in IP law Stanford is clearly better than HLS or CLS. A much tougher question would be to decide between HLS and CLS

The only minus with Stanford (from my point of view) is that I would prefer studying in a more urban environment, e.g. New York or Boston. I think that studying in a big city gives you much more opportunities to go out dining, visit museums, concerts, etc., which I think is a great bal-ance to the hard studying. From what I have understood, San Francisco is in practice to far away to make it easily accessible from Stanford.

I would really appreciate input from somebody who has been at Stanford (LL.M. or just other-wise). How long does it in practice take from Stanford to San Francisco? Do students actually visit San Francisco regularly or is it something you just do once or twice a month? Thanks!

I received a call a couple of days ago (when was out of the office)... Still thinking about returning the call since i'm already in CLS and NYU. Having v-strong doubts re Stanford. Minuses for me are the following: small class --> small alumni, location, allegedly academic-oriented style of teaching, potential problems with recruitment (limited networking capabilities).

Hi guys, just wanted to know if you ever heard of two people coming from the same country admitted to the same LLM program at Stanford...I know for a fact that somebody in my country was admitted, so I guess my chances are practically non-existent, given the small size of the program but I was wondering if miracles happen...Thank you!

pretty tricky situation, but a miracle could happen especially if you have extremely compelling credentials.

I know that it happens - two people from one country in one program at SLS. So you could still get in! Good luck!

Sure it happens. This year (2006-2007) they have 3 Brazilian LLMs.

my humble opinion:
small classes: it's a privilege.
location: wonderful, but suburban, you need to like that
academic-oriented teaching style: I am not sure I understand.
potential problems with recruiting: I take it as a joke. From what I've heard all LLMs from the past years got jobs wherever in the US.

Thanks

Hi,

I am currently studying at Stanford:

1) "allegedly academic-oriented style of teaching"

I am not sure to understand this point All courses (except one) are taken with JD students. The LLM in Corporate governance is limited to students with a significant prior professional experience (Most of us were working for top law firms, ie Sullivan, Cleary, etc before commencing the program.). Several courses are taught by professionals and nobody is interested in academia. Last but not least, you can take many courses at Stanford Graduate School of Business with MBA students (either in the first or second semester) without any selection.

2) the alumni network

Do you prefer attending:

- a law school that has 200 of its former LLM students working as lawyers in your own country and an "average" business school network?

or

- a law school that has 5 of its former LLM students working as lawyers in your own country and one of the best global alumni networks in the world?

Stanford has one of the best MBA in the world (with Wharton, Harvard and Kellogg), a top school of engineering, top science programs, etc... and its one of the most entrepreneurial places in the world (Silicon Valley was born at Stanford).

Do you really think your clients will be former LLM students?
Your competitors for sure but not your clients.

I wish all of you the best of luck and a wonderful 2007-2008 academic year!

I am 100% with Marina.
Do you guys really think that you r going to find a job thru a LLM alumni? As far as I know, LLM do not often, not to say never, reach partner/hiring decison-making level in the US. In your home country, believe me, the Stanford brand name opens all doors even non-alumni doors. Supposing you need an alumni, you can go to the JDs. Because the adv degree class is so small, you are de facto integrated with JDs, not a subclass, so you can surely go to the JD alumni as needed.
Re" academic-orientated classes, it is wrong. The offering at Stanford for very practical workshops is amazing. Even lectures are very orientated towards practice. You can get for sure as well education focused on academia, but it is your option, not sthing compulsory.
If many law professors come out of Stanford, it is not cos it is mostly academically orientated but because the JDs score the highest LSAT after Yale (which is the other school providing for a lot of judges and professors).
