Cornell Tech is the only post grad school that allows one to pursue an LLM which is completely centred around technology.
My first and foremost (albeit philosophical) advice would be to question yourself do you absolutely need an LLM since it is a significant investment of resources and time, so it is only logical that you question if you really need to do an LLM.
Mohak Rana is currently an LLM candidate at the Franklin Pierce School of Law, University of New Hampshire.
UChicago Law is a small school and prides itself on these relationships. The friends and professional contacts students make stay with them for the rest of their lives.
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.
Law schools need to create incentives to enable students to take up work that they are passionate about, rather than doing a bewildering number of internships for the sole reason that other law students are.
The LL.M. is a broad-ranging experience so the purpose cannot be anything but subjective. Ask yourself why you want to do it and this will likely yield answers to when and where you would like to pursue it.
It’s definitely been the best year of my life. I had heard this cliché from so many of my seniors but I finally understand it.
NYU has the best arbitration courses (both commercial and investment treaty) which I was looking for.
The LL.M. year passes by very quickly and it is very easy to lose sight of one’s goals in the busy year.
