I've done some research on the board, but haven't been able to find what I am looking for...
I am a U.S. citizen that graduated with a B.A. from an American university and I am currently studying the GDL at BPP Law School in London.
My questions are:
-After I complete the GDL am I eligible to apply for an LLM in the States? (I read in a post from a few years ago that Columbia allows this, is this still true?)
-I have the option of converting my GDL to an LLB - is this necessary to apply to a US LLM Programme / worth it?
-Is it true that a GDL -> LLB Conversion does not qualify as a "real" LLB, therefore creating problems to apply to US LLM/JD Programmes?
-I am also considering taking the LPC. Would this be beneficial in any way if I want to practice in the US?
While it interests me to work and do a training contract in England for a while, ultimately I want to live in the United States.
If anyone has any insight, advice or could point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
