I've got a honours LLB degree with distinction average from Bond University in Australia. Its not a highly ranked uni at all. I participated in mooting, played baseball for my uni and debating.

Is this enough for a solid chance at being admitted to Harvard's LLM program? (I intend to go into biglaw in the us btw)


Well, for one, you certainly don't need to "demonstrate commitment to teaching", nor do you have to lie about it: see https://llm-guide.com/board/general-forum/how-to-demonstrate-commitment-to-teaching-214773 and https://llm-guide.com/board/usa/does-harvards-llm-program-prefer-teachers-214941.

There are many discussions about HLS on these boards, and you would do well doing a search and reading what many have already said. I fact, you have been provided some answers in your previous thread already (see the first link, above) – have you read them and thought about them, or are you expecting that if you ask enough times and with enough question marks, someone will give you some magical answer and get you into HLS automatically? Being a lawyer, and more so being a good lawyer requires being able to take some initiative rather than waiting to be spoon-fed.

One last thing – in your last thread that you created (see the first link, above), you stated that you had just started your LLB course, yet now you claim to have gotten it with distinction. Which is it, why are you lying?
