    Opinion? ok well that's your opinion. Thanks.
    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 of my friends from grad school do that.

    I wasn't told anything like that at all...but I didn't attend my graduation either. I did ask my dean though...she said it was a doctorate and explained what I explained here.

    did they also teach you that phrases such as "job not involving law" probably includes jobs not involved in teaching law or were you at the 21st Amendment Club meeting that day?

    You don't need and LL.M to get a specific focus over a J.D. I was going for a criminal defense speciality which required a certain number of additional hours. I was advised against it, since a general J.D. is accepted just about everywhere whereas a focused one on your wall might make clients think you did not have skills in other areas.

    The University at which I teach allows for those with a Juris Doctorate to teach law and some lower level political science courses, the latter as an adjunct. In many cases it depends on the school, at least from my experience. Some people are appalled and offended that anyone would consider a J.D. a "doctorate." Others are not so picky. And, depending on the law school one attends, much of the curriculum is comparable to that of graduate school. So in reality, it is a bit of a gray area, again, the bulk of which is due to different schools.
