Harvard is probably the best school for corporate law. NYU and Penn are a close second. These three schools usually dominate the list of top professors based on their scholarship. Although not on the list Yale has Romano, which is also well known. See http://www.professorbainbridge.com/professorbainbridgecom/2011/05/corporate-practice-commentators-top-10-corporate-securities-articles-for-2010.html.
Hope that helps.

is it safe to say that if a well ranked law school is part of a university, which has a highly ranked Business school as well then the corporate/ business LL.M. would be good there.

by well ranked i mean the top 20 in both cases.

Although there is significant overlap between highly ranked law schools and highly ranked business schools (there are exceptions, eg the Yale business school is not top, unlike their law school), I wouldn't say that the rank of the business school should be your first concern. Employers will primarily assess your LLM not any classes you may take in the university's business school.
Also, before you choose, make sure that the business school resources are indeed available to you. For instance Harvard does not offer joint classes with the business school. Penn has the most integrated program with Wharton (you can either go for the certificate or simply take classes at Wharton). NUY has joint research centers with Stern, in which you may be able to participate.

Thanks for the valuable inputs. Due to a certain misunderstanding i had not applied to the top 10 and now i have 2 choices at the moment i.e. USC +5k scholarship and Vandy +20 k scholarship. Considering the location and experience which 1 would you'll rate higher?

P.S. i plan to work for a bit in the US but eventually will join my family business.

Vanderbild is a bigger name in law. I see that they are closely ranked but Vandy has better recognition and greater tradition in law. Location-wise of course, no need to say which one i would prefer... :)

Considering Vandy has oven school of business and USC has Marshall and it also allows to pick courses from Marshall. Further i have an option of George Washington University as well, now which is the best

Gwu is a solid law school.though your overall chances of employment as an llm student is not great, you would have a better shot with gwu( east coast/ny bar )

Vanderbilt isn't bad either....

Southern cali is awesome but unless you're studying for an MBA or the very least a business certificate, taking a course or two at Marshall is not a big deal.potential legal employers will look at the strength of your llm program and not at the couple of courses taken at the uni business school....

Since you're planning to join your family's business, I'm sure you could learn on the job...

Then again people in India know USC and not gwu or vandy.... Just my two rupees lol

guys, Northwestern # 1 in the country for corporate law...

that being said, USC is a great school in a even-better location, although they do not offer a certificate from Marschall Business School

USC does give a certificate in business, but I don't know whether it is from Marshall or not. Further, it allows you to pick almost 10 or more credits from Marshall if you opt for the Business Law track.

the option you mentioned sounds truly interesting. You may want to gain deeper knowledge in business-related subjects as well while studying at the law school
