    I graduated from a US law school, a three-year program that was very rigorous. Six hours of class on a given day meant 12 hours of study, for example.

    I was accepted to an LLM program, a 1-year program in England. I'm feeling a bit nervous right now though--I'm nervous about the little things, ie. misspellings (ie. center/centre) since I'm not familiar with British English (yet).

    Also, is obtaining an LLM much tougher than law school in terms of level of difficulty? Are the styles of teaching different/class sessions different? Thanks!

    i haven't been to a US law school but i do have a UK llm and i didn't spend anything like 12 hours a day studying. i'd guess that if you have that kind of work ethic you won't have any trouble with an llm.

    teaching style on my course was a mixture of lectures and seminars. it was long enough ago that i don't remember details but i suspect that the actual teaching was around 10-12 hours a week.
