    I'm planning on studying law at Kings college London as they offer a combined law & american law LLB & JD. As part of this I would get to study in american for 2 years.
    However my question is, would having an LLB & JD give me an advantage over other applicants for training contracts at London firms, especially if they were big US firms. Or would I have no advantage over applicants who just studied English law?

    KCL is a very good uni for Law so to have a JD in addition to the KCL LLB would probably do you good for applying to a US firm in the sense of having an interest in a different legal system. You would then be in a position to try for the New York Bar etc which would be very good indeed
