I can't think of any benefit it would have. I'm tempted to do it just to be like "hey watch this weird talent of mine" and then tap dance or shotgun a beer or do the splits or something.

J.D. Study Abroad Programs
USC Law offers five study abroad programs for J.D. students that provide opportunities to learn about foreign legal systems and to experience different cultures. Qualified second- and third-year J.D. candidates are exposed to international law as they take part in exchange programs with leading partner institutions worldwide.
International Dual Degree Program
London School of Economics: The USC/LSE dual degree program consists of two years of law study at USC Law followed by one year of study at the London School of Economics. Upon the successful completion of the three years of study, dual degree program participants will receive a J.D. degree from USC and an LL.M. degree from the University of London.
LSE is one of the largest schools of the University of London and is certainly one of the best known. It has an outstanding international reputation in economics and the social sciences. LSE has a very cosmopolitan character with over half of its 6,000 students, and many of its faculty, from outside the United Kingdom.


Very interesting! It's the first time I'v heard of this and it most definitely puts USC in new light for me!

Yeah, I decided against it after I saw the Q's, nothing that could really help me a whole lot by doing them. Not like I have a shot anyways!

Went to LSE for a term, loved it! The school is about equal distance from parliment and the London financial district. Heard about the program at that time. That got me interested in USC.

I wish I knew about this before. I sent them a LOCI last week and I could have added a good paragraph about my interest in this program :roll:

You sent a LOCI already? Did you get WL or did you send one because they are taking so long?

I sent one without really knowing it was a LOCI. I just thought itll be something that could add to my app. I'm in final review for the past week.

my rothman essay is just not coming together. piece of crap. do rothman invites get some sort of $ as a consolation prize for not being a rothman finalist? I feel like just submitting a piece of paper with the words FIGHT ON would probably give me a better chance right now.

I recommend plagiarizing as much of the script of The Jerk as possible.

From what I understand the most they give out outside of a Rothman is 30K a year. Up to you to decide if that's worth it.

I believe they cancelled the LLM program at LSE...

At least that's what a current 1L told me.

It's still on their website (look at the link I sent) but it may be outdated. Definety worth looking into to confirm because it's a great program, if it's still active... :shock:
