Law School Selection & Application Strategy

Find the Law School and LLM Program that is Right for You

All LL.M. programs or S.J.D. and other doctoral programs are not created equal. Some programs are geared towards particular LL.M. specializations, others towards a career in academia, while still others are better suited for law firm advancement.

We work with you to understand your strengths and your career goals and then identify and help you select the best law schools and programs that fit with your needs. We tailor your LL.M. application or doctoral application to emphasize your strengths and provide guidance on overcoming weaknesses in your application. Our approach to application and admissions support is essentially to highlight your attributes.

LLM Personal Statements

Master Your LLM Personal Statement – Stand Out Among the Crowd

Who are you? What makes you unique? Do you have the experience, background, and strengths a law school is looking for in their LL.M. candidates? What kind of addition to the law school and program will your presence make? These are the questions that admissions committees want answers to in your LL.M. personal statement (or LL.M. statement of purpose, LL.M. essay).

The LL.M. personal statement is likely the most important aspect of your application, its heart and soul. We work with you to help you find the answers to the queries sought by LL.M. admissions committees and present them in the best light on your personal statement, statement of purpose, or essay. We also provide guidance on topic selection, organization and structure, give valuable tips on writing styles, and edit drafts.

We caution against the use of sample LL.M. personal statements. Instead, we work to help you craft an individual personal statement that truly reflects you and your strengths. Help with your personal statement for LL.M. applications is an integral aspect of our approach to LL.M. application support: our goal is to make your personal statement memorable.

LLM Resumes / CV

LLM Resumes – Highlight Your Strengths

LL.M. admissions committees and doctoral admissions committees are looking for resumes or CVs (curriculum vitae) that are different from the ones sought by law firms or businesses. We revise, reformulate, and help you draft resumes for your LL.M. application or S.J.D./doctoral application that emphasize the skills and qualities admissions committees want. Our team will assist you with optimizing your LL.M. resume and with its formatting and overall presentation.

LLM References

LLM References are Crucial

A well-written and structured reference letter or letter of recommendation can make a world of difference to an LL.M. application or when applying to an S.J.D. or other doctoral program. Conversely, a bad reference letter can immediately sink an otherwise good application. References are, consequently, a very important aspect of your law school application and an integral aspect of our focus in doctoral and LL.M. application support and admissions consulting.

We provide assistance on how to obtain good reference letters for your LL.M. or doctoral application by providing guidance on who to select as a reference and what topics should be covered in the reference letter. We can also review letters of reference, if the referee agrees, to ensure that the references accord with the high standards expected by graduate admissions committees.

Consistency Review

Consistency, Flow, and Accuracy

An excellent LL.M. application or J.S.D./S.J.D. application is, among other factors, consistent between each of its individual parts. We conduct a consistency review of your overall application to ensure that there is a flow between individual parts and that the overall application reads consistently and is free from repetition. We also carefully proofread the entire LL.M. application materials to ensure that it is free from typographical and other errors.

Post-Application Support

You Were Accepted to an LLM Program or JSD / SJD Program?

Congratulations, but the process does not end there. Did you know that you can use LL.M. admission offers to leverage your position with other schools and even improve your chances to get scholarships? Are you familiar with “conditional admissions” and LL.M. program waitlists and do you know how to optimize your chances of admission if you find yourself in either of these situations?

We offer guidance regarding communications with the law schools of your choice after being placed on an LL.M. waitlist or after receiving offers to help you get into the best possible program, to obtain scholarships, and, if needed, to secure financial aid. For us, LL.M. application support does not end with your first acceptance.

Do you require any further assistance on any other matters related to the LL.M., J.S.D., S.J.D., D.Phil, or Ph.D. application and admissions process? We offer a wide variety of additional services relating to LL.M. and doctoral application help and support, including advice on taking the TOEFL and other language tests, sitting for the New York Bar or California Bar, completing financial aid (loans or scholarship) applications, and visa or immigration questions. We are committed to ensuring that LL.M. application help can extend, if desired, beyond just the application.
