Non-Tax LLM

Post by lostpike » Tue Aug 09, 2011 5:39 pm

Under what circumstances would it be benificial to get a non-tax LLM for your career? Assume I am speaking about US JDs.

If you are a solicitor at a Magic Circle firm, and they want you to transfer to a US office, and you need it to be admitted.

Outside of that, I can't really think of any.

If you only have a foreign law degree. If your employer recommends or requests that you do so part-time while continuing to be employed (and pays for it).

Otherwise, the answer is never.

What would you want to use it for?

For fed/state/city gov, it would be okay. However, work experience would be better.

For anything else, don't bother.

I've heard good things about Tulane's Maritime Law LLM. Pretty much any International Law LLM is going to be money in the bank, especially if it's from a school that has a very reputable International Law program, e.g. Stetson Law.

No. Unless you only ever want to do academia yet somehow managed not to talk to a professor throughout all of law school and need to meet professors with whom to do research. Although I suppose LLMs are not career-killers for academics the way they are for everyone else (who isn't tax or foreign).

Oh yeah Tulane's Martime/Admiralty LLM is a good bet for that type of law. I really don't think about that one that much.
