I was looking through professor profiles at various schools and most of the professors have an LLM. Is this common for an academia career path?
foreign professors basically have to have llms because you need an llm to practice in the usa if you've already studied law abroad. older profs have llms because that's the degree that used to be awarded (or is llb?) instead of jd. for others, i don't think it's common to have an llm but i may be wrong.
