Pursuing an LLM / Re: Which of Gtown or Cornell's LLM do I pick?

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?

One of my friends is currently enrolled in Fordham's LLM. Well, guess what? It IS very tough. According to him, you don't have a lot of classes (something like 12hrs a week), but they're very intense, with a huge load of homework... And also, you HAVE to participate by asking questions, giving answers, etc.

NYU, easy to get into?  ???

I was rejected there... They seem to require a strong work experience, and I don't have any in law.

By the way, do you guys think that the usual rankings (US News, Leiter...) apply to LLM programs as well?

LLM are for people who already own a JD, and/or foreign lawyers. If you're in highschool, you should take pre-law in college (undergraduate studies), and then apply to a law school (graduate studies).
