Grad Plus loans are pretty easy to qualify for. I had a terrible credit score while in LS and qualified without a co-signor.

You make good points, but also anything I learned in law school could have been learned just be reading caselaw. The degree itself is more valuable than what you actually learn most of the time.

I graduated from a T1 school in 2008 and I've been working in small firm litigation ever since. I actually try cases, I'm not doing the big firm document review.
I'm thinking seriously about getting some transactional experience going, because I can't see myself in litigation for much longer. The constant adversarial role, your life revolving around the docket, the mindless depositions and pre-trial motion hearings are becoming a bore.
BTW, I have some knowledge of the transactional side, because prior to law school I worked as a paralegal at a mid-sized real estate transaction firm.
I was thinking of attempting a joint LLM/MBA if that is even possible. Would it make a difference? Long term, I would like to work for a mid-sized to large firm in the transactional group and eventually move to a much smaller boutique transactional firm.
I'm interested in a Tax LLM at a non-NYU/non-GULC/non-UF/non-Miami
graduated a few years ago from T1 40's school, middle of the class, small firm litigation since law school (I've first-chaired four jury trials and second-chaired several more).
I took only one tax class, and got a C+ (median), but I've handled some tax issues as an attorney and I'm really leaning toward it as a speciality.
