LLM or MBA?

(1/4) > >>

sollicitus:
Which is worth enrolling in more, an MBA or an LLM? (assuming you already have a JD or are jointly enrolled) and why?

jonlevy:
MBA would not be worth the extra effort if you are going to practice law.  The LLM is of dubious value as well since the JD is considered the highest professional degree in law.

how can it be the highest if there is two degrees about it?

But that being said, both are essentially useless then?

jonlevy:
JD is the highest US professional degree in law, there is a LLM  for foreign law school graudates that permits them to take the bar.  The other LLMs are quicky specialty degrees like tax.  The highest academic degree would be the equivalent to a PhD in Law or a foreign LLD but those are not on a professional track. 

IrrX:
Don't forget the SJD.
