Fordham U / Re: Introductions

Hey there

I was accepted @ Fordham's LLM. Does that count as well? Most LLM courses are taught in common with JD courses.

Pursuing an LLM / Re: Applying to LLM program

It depends on your academics!

It is quite clear that top 15 schools don't often accept candidates with no work experience, but there are a lot of great schools where you could get an LLM.

If your grades are good enough, you have a fair chance to be accepted in a top 30 school.

Most people stick with MS Word for both note taking and outlining... But there are some specific programs for that.

Does anyone use one of them, or did anyone try to? Which one? Is it good or useless?
And what about Microsoft's OneNote software?

I'd love to work in NYC for a while, but... who knows? How about you?

No answer yet, but I've been accepted at Fordham, so no big deal... Fordham is very underrated (or so I hear), and it seems like a great choice with its LLM in Corp., Banking and Finance law.
To be honest, even if I got accepted at Cornell, I don't know if it would change my choice.
I'm French too, btw!

Current Law Students / Re: Study Abroad

In my opinion, studying abroad is never a bad thing.

It's necessary in many cases if you want to work abroad; and if you don't, it still shows that you are able to adapt to a different culture, and that you're not afraid of change.

However, since you only speak English, I think you should consider studying in an English speaking country. It's already difficult to learn a new language form scratch at 2x years, let alone taking law classes in that language.

Since Georgetown's LLM is in your specific area, I think you should go for it. Even if you have to go back to Tokio after your LLM, believe me, Georgetown sounds just as good as Cornell...

Who can tell me about the on campus housing at Fordham Law? Is it OK or is it like hell?

I hear their LLM is great. It's so great that I got rejected ;)
Apparently, they really want people with a strong work experience AND great credentials.

What about transnational law firms and international companies' legal services?
