Law School Applications / Two-year JDs for foreign-trained lawyers
« on: April 19, 2008, 04:00:00 PM »
Which American law schools offer two-year JDs for foreign-trained lawyers? 

Last I knew, Northwestern, Kansas, Rutgers and Miami all had formal two-year JD programs for foreign-trained lawyers.  Are there other such formal programs being offered right now?

Best,

Is this for schools that put it out there on their own (like Penn) or schools that seem to be keeping it on the D/L?  I ask because if it's the case that this or that school doesn't want everyone knowing they are willing to do this, I'd rather not put it out there incase too many people start asking and then maybe they become more stringent with it in the future or something.

But for the first case:

Northwestern

Does Northwestern offer such aid to all people?  If I choose to attend one of their admitted students' days, I have to fly from a very remote location.  Getting to Chicago is going to cost me a pretty penny.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Anyone know anything about JAG?

The Coast Guard has good information, but their legal department is a bit different from the other departments.

Being a JAG is a great job; however, if you're in the Army/Navy, whatever, you really CAN die on the job... although it's not at all likely.

I want to be a Coast Guard lawyer, and I'm very excited about it.

Keep in mind that your starting salary would hover around $50,000 and max out probably around $110-120,000 if you stick with it.  You also get immediate experience whereas you probably wouldn't in private practice with firms.  Call a recruiter or something.  The more I learn about Coast Guard, the more I want to do it.

Man, that Coast Guard program DOES look very sweet.  And with a few exceptions, the places where you'll end up working are top shelf.

Does anyone know what the workload and the quality of work on offer is like?  If this program offers a better lifestyle than private practice, it just might merit very serious consideration.
