The New York Law Journal has come out with their Best of 2010 rankings, and has accordingly ranked the best LL.M. programs in New York. According to the NYLJ, New York Law School has the best LL.M. program in taxation, St. John’s in bankruptcy law, NYU in corporation law and international legal studies, and Cardozo in comparative legal thought.
Above the Law highlights these surprising results, since NYU “has long been considered, by U.S. News and others, to have the best tax LL.M. program in the land.” On closer look, the NYLJ has claimed its rankings are “purely democratic.” Readers voted for their favorites via online ballot, and that was the extent of the methodology involved. It’s a popularity contest. You may want to conduct research elsewhere as you weigh your options.
