Wow, don't bash each other's English skills.  Most LLM students are international students, except for those that are doing taxation (at least that is how it seems).

Most of the LLM students where I am a law student are from abroad - trying to obtain an LLM not only to further their education but to be able to work in the US.  However, it seems that taxation LLMs are usually obtained by US attorneys that are either already doing tax or trying to break into tax law because its lucrative.

Not a second LLM

I have a first LLM in IP (=Intellectual Property) Law but it is from a belgian university.
As I understood, only applicants with a first US LLM were not allowed to apply for a second LLM.
I hope I got that correct (?)

Unfortunately, I cannot help you with that question.  I am a first year law student in a JD program.

I think you can. You could find what you are looking for in the application materials of the University you are looking for.

Yes, I am planning to apply to Columbia an 3 other London based schools. I do not know what your chances are, but I assume that admission to these schools is competitive. I would also like to know how tough is getting into Columbia? I would like to specialize in international law at Columbia.I am already admitted to the NY bar although i have never practiced in NY, have 2 years of commercial law experience at a firm plus one year of expereince at an international org. My Canadian law school grades were very good (i.e, second class honours, cum laude).
