Wharton (WBLCP)


Mistake

Hello again,

I am admitted for the WBLCP :-)

That said, some points remain still unclear for me regarding this WBLCP certificate and its program.

I understand the WBLCP students should follow the usual LL.M. program (which is 23 semester hours) and, in addition, follow 3 courses from Wharton school (which are given either in evening, or on Saturday).

Regarding the courses of the LL.M., these can be freely chosen.

Is that correct?

My main concern is not to be limited to some definite courses offered to LL.M. students only to be able to earn the WBLCP certificate.

Thank you in advance for any advice or information.

thanks for the input.

Of course I read this. But, according to me, the points I mentionned, namely the course selection and credit transfer, remain unclear.

I think you may as well forward your inquiries directly to the admissions office or the WBLC program manager. (You can easily spot the contact point on their web-site)

As far as I'm concerned, the requirement to earn the Certificate is to complete 3 courses at Wharton AND one course related to business law at the law school (ie Securities Regulation, Corporation or M&A)

The rest, I think, you can pretty much build up on you own.

One more thing, as for the tranfer of credits you earned at Wharton, it can be transferred towards your LL.M. degree. The minimum requirement for the Cert. and the LL.M. degree is 23 credit points. This is not a maximum. You may, at your discretion, take more classes at the Law School. Actually, I was told my the admissions office that historically, many WBLC participants take up to 20 credit points worth of law coures, in addition to the 3 business course (6 credits) at Wharton, in hope of meeting the NY bar requirement. Note that it is up to you to verify whether your academic career and design of courses at Penn Law meet the NY bar requirement.

You precisely point out a good point: the requirements for the bar exam.

My concern is to fufill the conditions for NY bar exam regarding the semester hours in law.

I guess 20 credit point of law courses is ok,

let me check ....

In any case, thanks for your input

Nope... I sent them an email, and they told me they "hope" to have a result before the end of the week.

With Belgium09 post I'm starting to get worried... Oh god, here we go again...

Ps. 5,5 years of experience.

Just in case someone is still wondering, I was accepted with less than 3 years of experience (internship is not considered by Wharton as experience).
