UWashington or UWisconsin? South Methodist Uni?
Last year I was at UWisconsin @ Madison for a conference. The school is huge, but the law school is in a very nice building. They have robust academic programs, and a particular strength in dual programs (e.g. JD/MBA)

If you want to work in IP, then the choice is easy. UW has an IP specific program, while SMU does not. That said, if you want to take the NY Bar exam, you will have to take general US law classes, so the IP track does not really matter. Seattle's business community has much closer ties to Asia/China than Dallas, so work after graduation might be better at UW.

Thanks for your reply.
I found there are nearly the same amount of patent application entering into the china from WA and TX.
But TX is a big state and its economy is upcoming, and SMU offers the chance to transfer to JD.
So I guess maybe there are more chance for me get a job in dallas after my LL.M program and then i can transfer to JD.
My adviser wants me to UW, but an IP lawyer familiar with US, said that there are more chance to find more client in Dallas than in Seattle.
There were about 8K patent application of TX, and WA were about 5.6K.

Well, if you want to have a full-time job as an attorney in the US, you will have to have a JD. Just being honest.
