"It is well known that enrolling in an LLM program is a time consuming and extremely expensive endeavor. In selecting programs to apply to, prospective applicants often look for LLM rankings in an effort to determine which programs are most desirable to them on the basis of the programs' appeal to a broad survey audience. Unfortunately, there are no such official rankings for LLM programs and, conceptually, there cannot be." LLM guide.net
This book however works around a superficial look at LL.M. rankings and seeks to cater to the individual needs and interests. It answers questions about the value of the LL.M. degree, the types, a unique 218 point criteria in ranking LL.M. programs, admissions, scholarships and employment. Especially important is that this guide navigates the student visa issues and offers explanations and advice.
This book is a must have to all international lawyers seeking a U.S. Law degree. Doing a search on Amazon or other retail books sellers reveals that there is little out there advising foreign lawyers on things such as admission advice and types of LL.M. programs. However, this book is not only the rare find, it promises to deliver on its title as a "Roadmap."
