Generally, it is easier to get into an LL.M. program than a JD program. There are simply not as many applicants to LL.M. programs as there are to JD programs. That being said, Stanford is a pretty amazing place, and a lot of people want to go there, so it is not a piece of cake. However, if you have a decent grades, and with your experience, you will likely be competitive. You should also look at UC Berkeley and UCLA, if you are interested in CA.

thank you for your reply, really. Tristan.

I hold a master degree in law in one top law school in China, and have a PRC lawyer license. The problem is maybe I am over 30 now, it seems I have exceeded the golden ages to be a student... But as I really involve a lot about US laws, such as in charge of US patent litigations, and also help corporate matters, it is essential to learn US laws...

Life is not easy, always...

Do not worry about age. In most LL.M. programs, there are people of all ages. We had 150 students and had people right out of LL.B./Bachelor programs, in their early 20s, to practitioners/judges/law professors/human rights activists, etc. in their 40s and 50s.
