Which law schools give advanced standing?

Postby chenghsiang » Tue Mar 06, 2012 12:00 am

Which law schools give advanced standing, specifically for graduation from JD in 2 years instead of 3, for a law degree (at undergraduate or graduate level) completed at a civil law country? I'm interested in applying to a JD in the US.

Thanks!

Northwestern's is the only one I've heard of (http://www.law.northwestern.edu/academics/jd/jd2.html). Though others might exist.

If you have a foreign law degree, isn't your best bet to get an LLM?
