Choosing the Top LLM Programs
Given that there is no authoritative list of top LLM programs, students are often lost when they are at the stage of determining what the best law schools to suit their career goals are. Granted, the US News & World Report rankings for any type of school are deeply flawed. But, they at least provide students with a place to begin their research and guide their understanding of schools and programs with which they otherwise might not have been familiar.
Students needs to avoid thinking about the most prestigious or elite schools, and think about what schools will best help propel them in their careers as internationally educated lawyers. Careful research and planning are crucial, and talking to current JD and LLM students or recent graduates can be immensely helpful in that process.

I am pursuing a JD at Harvard Law School, where I am a member of Harvard’s Journal on Legislation and Journal of Sports and Entertainment Law. Prior to attending law school, I graduated summa cum laude from Dartmouth College with High Honors in History. There, I competed on the Policy Debate team and was the Managing Editor of The Dartmouth Independent. Teaching, mentoring, and coaching have continued to be passions of mine after my time working as a high school debate coach. Throughout college until the present, I have worked with several college and professional school applicants to refine their applications and get into the top choice schools. My favorite part of the job is to watch students grow intellectually and personally throughout the process. I am proud to call many of my advisees lifelong friends. In my free time, I enjoy basketball, soccer, and fitness. My other passion is food, and if there is a Chipotle nearby, you’re likely to find me there at least twice a day. Fortunately, those two hobbies should balance each other out!
