As the LLM fair is concerned, I had a great time interacting with the law school representatives.
I would recommend studying and learning as much as possible, and networking with people, both in and out of the university in one’s filed, as two most important aspects of an LL.M. program.
Both NYU and NYC have taught me numerous life and professional lessons.
Sujeet S. Karkala, who did an LLM from Duke University, is a legal advisor at Sciaroni & Associates in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
Our batch of 200 students consisted of lawyers from 80 different countries, and understanding the legal systems of different countries and their culture was truly an enriching experience.
I would recommend that one consider why they want to pursue a JD, as it is a big investment. Due to visa uncertainties, one may or may not be able to work in the United States for a long period of time.
