question about law school transfers

Postby sarcasticbug » Sun Feb 01, 2015 9:43 pm

silly question -- but if you are able to transfer law schools, are you awarded the same JD degree as students would that had been matriculated all 3 years at the particular school? would your diploma state you were a transfer student on it?

no. why would it matter though? not like anyone is going to every ask to see your physical diploma, nor is it any less of an accomplishment (for LS, at least)

Yes. Why do you want to transfer? Scholarship negotiation?

The more important question is whether transferring will help you get the job you want. That answer depends on where you are transferring from, where you are transferring to, your class rank, and the desired job.

But if you're a 0L, please don't go to law school with the idea that you're going to transfer.
