This is completely wrong, a student can apply to whatever programme they choose. Plus all the schools i have looked at have stated that if one wants a more long term career in the US e.g. wants to reside in the States and work then a JD is a more efficient route to take rather than the LLM which will limit you in the long run.
I'm happy to stand corrected. I guess US schools are happy to take the cash. Effectively you get to pay $250k for a chance at OCI.
It's still maintain that, if you can graduate with a 1st, working in London then transferring will be a safer and cheaper route to the same end.
[s]Yes but again your mistaken, according to reports ([/s]i[size=50]
've had various meetings about this with my personal tutora tmy university) in terms of longevitya nd sufficiency the JD route is a much better path to take, ast hen your no t simpl y pl acing all you've got on that firm, say if that firm fires you? no other firm will take you (hardly likely) you will most likely have to start from scratch again. I think it needs to be remembered that those with a foreign law degree and an LLM will be competing against national students with a FULL law degree. why would a firm want a transfer from another country who has minor knowledge of one of the worlds leading legal systems, over a candidate who has trained for 3 years studying the law and passed the bar with work experience.
What I read.
wow if this is what you do in your spare time you really need to get out more.
