Hi guys,
Im new on here and well in my third year of my LLB course will finish in June. I want to practice in the states would it be a good idea to apply for an LLM in the states before applying for the bar? and what universities are good? i want to go into either Property law, or taxation maybe even company law. how do i go about applying for the LLM and is it too late for the 2005/2006 intake?
Hope some one can give me some advise, i've been accepted to do the Legal Practice Course by the college of law here in London but not sure if there is any point in accepting the offer, i was told i would be better off doing a masters...can any one herlp :-(

Hi Banmi, there is more info on the bar issue in another board: http://www.llm-guide.com/board/120. For most foreigners the LLM in NY or Calif. is the only way to get into the bar exam, as far as I know, but I have also heard that they accept British university education as sufficient you might want to check the regulations for that.
I think you can still apply for most LLMs, the deadlines vary depending on each individual program so you should check the details of those programs you are interested in in.
Hope this helps a little

Well, I think you should not worry. The LLM year is usually a lot of fun, you will meet people from all over the world and you get to study things you are actually interested in. I f you do want to apply for an LLM, I would also consider applying to programs abroad. Going abroad shows a future employer that you are flexible, it usually is a plus if you have something like it in your cv and also, it is of course more exciting to go to a new place for a year.

Hello...
Saw your thread and thought you might could offer some advice. I am a US citizen, just finishing my third year of my JD (LLB equivalent?) in May. I have applied and been accepted to an LLM program in London, but I'm having a difficult time finding resources to answer my questions about housing, funding issues, and visas, etc.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Hi there, well there are student houses that you could rent
take a look at: http://www.homesforstudents.co.uk/ as for fundings i guess it would be up to the university you need to contact them. I you contact them also ask them about accomodaction they may be able to offer you something cheaper than what you would find else where. Im not really sure about the visa, shouldnt the university help you get that?
Good Luck
