YLS LL.M. 2014-2015

In the previous two years, two of my colleagues who were not even called for the regular interview by the Fulbright Committee got admitted to HLS - one even with scholarship.

I was not invited for an interview by them as well and I hope the tradition continues this year as well.

I didn't apply, but I'd just like to congratulate you guys! You must be very happy to be in! I've been following this thread from its beginning, Yale is my dream school too, maybe in a few years (when I've saved some money too, lol), I'll muster up enough courage and apply. Have a terrific time in New Haven!

PS. HopefulCandidate, I'm really sorry to be bothering you in what must be a very busy time, I tried to send you a pm a few days ago, but I don't know if it has been sent...

Hey guys!

I'm thinking to apply for several llm next year, Yale included, and I would like to know your opinions and feedbacks on:

1) Recommendation letters: needed from a Yale Professor for succeeding?
2) I have got a Ph.d. (Italian) - Is it well evaluated?
3) Any must to put in the cv?

Thank you!

Hey mate,

1. Not at all, your recommendation letters can (and should) come from people who know you. A good mix of both academic letters (from past professors you've worked with and studied under) as well as legal employers. Your letters should reflect some interest in law teaching as well as in policy and academia, as those are topics most emphasized by Yale.

2. Yes having a Ph.d is an added bonus, especially a non-legal Ph.d. can go a long way in showing your interdisciplinary capabilities which I think will be appreciated here. Note however that having a Ph.d. is not a pre-requisite in any way.

3. So academic experience, past publications, past work in law teaching - are all things to include. Similarly work in courts or with government, anything public sector and policy oriented or juriprudential - is highly advised. Note that you want to be able to explain what your academic agenda is (there is an essay that you need to write about that), and your cv should reflect that academic agenda.

I hope this helps, and please pm me if you have any additional questions.

Cheers
