Alabama vs. Temple

Postby cyqing » Mon Apr 19, 2010 11:01 am

My cousin is an international student from Beijing, China who is trying to decide which LLM program to attend: Alabama or Temple. Her goal is to get some experience working in the United States after she graduates and then practice law in China. Which school would put her in a better position to do this? Alabama is higher ranked but Temple's in a major city, so maybe there will be career opportunities?

Another consideration is that I live in New Jersey and that's the only family she has here in the US, so obviously Temple would be closer. I know nothing about law schools so I would appreciate any advice so I can help my cousin make the best decision. Thanks.

I may be mistaken, but doesn't Temple actually have a relationship with a Chinese legal institution? Pre-established ties/demonstrated commitment to the Chinese legal market seems to make them a better bet imo.
