I'm sure it is low; however, I am hoping someone has come up with an approximate percentage. It looks like I will have to offer some cash to get this number.

It's a legitimate question. I don't want you to think I don't think that it is, and, honestly, I'm curious of the percentage also, but I wonder why that information is useful to you, unless, like me, it is just for general interest. It seems like the operative question is whether in your case an LL.M. is worth the expense.

And, I would guess it's a low percentage of U.S. lawyers also.

The most important law degree in USA is that of JD though a very few candidate pursue LL.M and JSD/SJD also. Most post-JD studies are pursued by people intending to join academics and not by those joining the Bar.

I know that it has been a few years since the OP presented the question, but does anyone know the actual percent? I am curious about that also.
