Can I pursue LLM without an LLB/JD

Can I pursue LLM without an LLB/JD
« on: December 24, 2011, 05:02:41 AM »
Hi,

I'm currently working as a Software Engineer in an MNC and have no background in Law. I completed my Graduation in Electronics and Communication Engineering and want to pursue LLM in Patent Law/Intellectual Property Rights Law. Are there any universities that offer me a full time LLM course in the U.S/U.K?

There are several LLM programs in the UK that can be studied without an LLB and do not lead to the practice of law, but none I know of in the US without a JD. Generally, a law school in the US will offer the option of a Master of Legal Studies (MLS) for people who want to study law, but not practice it.
