American Law SchoolWatch
Im pretty sure I want to be a lawyer (boo hiss) after uni and was planing on going the CPE route hopefully with a training contact to help pay it all but recently ive been thinking about the big US of A
I know the JD is a three year postgrad programme and i know it costs an arm and a leg ($31,000 a year!) but is there any sensible way of pulling it off? Scholarships financial aid ect...
Also is it worth it?
Get into HYS and you're in for $$$ on receiving your JD. Make sure you ace the LSAT if you want a decent shot at those places and other Top-14 schools.
Less debt + Less salary here in the UK.
More debt + more salary if you graduate from Top-14 in the US.
I opted for ther former, but if you can get yourself into a US firm (Cleary, Covington etc.) you may get NY rates in London which is RARE. Still £70 or 80k in London will not get you as good a lifestyle as $140-160K in NY.
