Where to go - Berkeley vs Georgetown vs Cornell vs (Columbia)


Hi I hope to seek some advice on which university I should choose for my LLM.

Currently, I have been admitted to Berkeley, Georgetown and Cornell.
And I am in a waiting list for NYU.
I have not heard back from Columbia yet.

For my background, I am an international student, who will work at a law firm in London once I finish my LLM. I am interested in commercial transactions such as M&A, private equity and capital markets.

Hence, I hope to ask which university I should choose, based on factors such as reputation, subject choice and location.

I am currently inclined to choose Berkeley among the universities that offered me, but possibly Columbia if the university provides a positive result for my application.

Thanks.

Berkeley

Great school (althoug has dropped in the ranking). Plus, Cali might be one of the best locations.

I'm a Boalt student who is currently taking the IP law program. This year, I mean 2016-2017, Boalt offers a variety of business and financial law courses - you may check its curriculum.

M&A course was instructed by Prof. Solomon whose teaching performance last semester was excellent even though the way he graded his students' exam was very tough!

There are many clubs with regard to business law that I highly recommend you to join.

Personally, Boalt is attempting to complete against the elite east-coast law schools.

Please bear in mind that the prices of accomdation here - Berkeley - are surging.

Welcome to Cal and be proud of Boalt!

Hiya! Do you have any info or experiences you could share about the entertainment IP teaching at Boalt or other IP courses in general?? What was the teaching like?


For the practical area of IP law, I do recommend the following subjects:

i) IP analytics ii) IP and Entrepreneurship iii) Silicon valley antitrust iv) Entertainment law and v) wine law (yes, the law regulating wine)

As for the fundamental IP law, I suggest you to take:

Intro to IP, Copyright, Patent, and Trademark. You will be given an opportunity to study with the nationally recognized professors in this country, who have produced a ton of publications in the top law journals.

Don't worry about the quality of education particulalry in IP law. If you wanna be an expert in law and technology, no law schools other than Boalt would best suit you.
