Are you fluent in any different languages? If not getting an LLM as an American student won't really help you in that field I would assume, unless you wanted to become a professor.
Since English is the international language of business, I would think the LLM would still be useful even if you're not fluent in a foreign language.
I think the students take foreign language courses as part of the Duke JD/LLM program though anyway (if they're not already fluent in another language), so even if you don't have foreign language skills at the start of the program, you will by the end of it. Anyone know about that for sure?
Good luck. Are you an original JD/LLM applicant like me who hasn't heard anything? I was in Japan for two years and was hoping to focus on East Asian law as well, but now I'm off to another school that has nothing related to East Asian studies. I also find it a bit annoying since a lot of people who have applied for the program in the first place have actually lived/worked abroad, while some of the people they are asking haven't shown any interest in the area.
I hope it works out for you, tori. Are you living in Japan now? What part? Would it be hard for you to move in the next two weeks if you have to?
Has anyone gotten any indication of yay or nay yet? I can't focus at work and its driving me NUTS. Good luck to all of us..
i for one went through a huge ordeal trying to figure out how to pull out of my study abroad program early so that i could get back to the states and take duke's offer... only to learn after begging for more information a few times that the above is the case.
I just received an email from Dean Hoye updating me on my status...he said the fall class remains full, but there are seats in the summer class that are open if I would be open to a dual degree...
Is this a generic email sent to everyone or does it look like they are really considering offering a spot?
i got it too, but mine unfortunately said nothing about scholarship money. everyone on the waitlist probably got it, right?
