    True, but my research shows that the ABA doesn't consider the LL.M or any D.S.J., S.J.D., or D.J. degree to be "terminal" degrees. See the prior citation I used for equivalency in post #88. They only enhance the J.D..

    From what I understand there are only 20 schools in the USA that offer one of the three "research" doctorates listed. LL.M's provide a higher level of specific expertise in certain fields, but they are limited to a few types of speciality law like Tax, and Corporate, etc. They are also not offered at all law schools.

    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    None to very little. Flunked out of Kindergarten after failing nappy time and screwing up on graham crackers and milk.

    Bachelor's Degree in English, aka a BA in BS.

    Went back for vocational training in '03-4 and came out Pro Tools Certified (music recording).

    Neither of which have anything to do with how I make a living.
