Re: California LLM - Top 20 or Higher Ranked Specialization

Postby cavalier1138 » Fri Mar 03, 2017 6:16 am

Unless it's radically different for LLMs (and based on the LLMs I know, I don't think it is), specialization rankings are meaningless. No one in the country thinks that Loyola is a better school because it focuses on "practical lawyering experience" except the Loyola admissions office.

Lord Cniht wrote:To your mind then, you might expect greater chances for employment arising based on the school's rankings. That's a rule of thumb? Rather than the type of work undertaken therein. So, where a UCLA might be more academically inclined, a Loyola more practical, but, all employers generally will have an eye towards a higher ranking candidate vis-a-vis their institution than say a more job-ready candidate? Provided of course my supposition that Loyola is a more practice focused institution than its USC/UCLA counterparts is, in fact, correct.


Literally none of that matters. You should talk to LLM students about how easy it is to stay in the US from these schools, but outside of the T14, schools have regional job placement, with varying success at placing in biglaw (the firms that are likely to sponsor your visa). It doesn't matter if the institution is "academic" or "practical", because you're already a lawyer. You're in the US to get an advanced degree, not to do a full course of study.
