From what I have read, LLM in anything other than tax appears more as a resume padding device and usually will not confer the same opportunities/prestige as a JD from a top institution.
I would have to disagree. I am sure that there is a paucity of hr directors at firms who look at an LLM as resume padding. The overwhelming majority probably welcome it. Additionally, the career office probably has a separate department within it to actively seek employers who don't display such a funky attitude towards llm's
just my opinion
