We welcome the opportunity to work with LL.M. students and alumni! Foreign-trained LL.M. students should be aware that many factors affect an LL.M. student’s success in securing permanent or temporary employment as an attorney in the United States, including the extremely competitive nature of the U.S. legal job market, the varied bar eligibility and admissions requirements, and the restrictions imposed under U.S. immigration laws. Both long-term and temporary job opportunities for foreign attorneys in the U.S. are limited. The applicants’ level of fluency in various languages, including English, academic performance, and prior legal experience greatly affect their marketability. However, despite the odds, UC Hastings is committed to helping LL.M. students succeed in their career and professional development goals.
