Thank You for your answer.
I know that law schools usually are post-graduate but it seems to me that I've heard about law schools taking foreign students even if they're not post-graduate.
Law schools as such don't exist overhere. In Germany and France (probably in the entire EU) you only have law studies. Then you pass the "Staatsexamen" (~ state examination) (for German law) and the "DEUG" (~ some kind of intermediate examination) (for French law).
After passing the state examination in Germany, you work for two years (in a chancellery or at the office of the district attorney, e.g.) and then you pass a second state examination. If you pass the second one, too, you are qualified to exercise the functions of a judge as all other jurisitc professions.
And this is why I think that US law schools actually take foreign students even if they're not post-graduate.
Thank You for the allusion to these two schools. I'll try my luck.
