I am an attorney making ~$105k/yr. If I go and get my LLM I could make ~$120/yr, but would have to take two years off. Should I get the LLM?
My fiance only makes about $45k/yr and there is no large raise in the foreseeable future. We have low monthly expenses and would be able to squeak by, but it would be a tough couple of years. There is a possibility of a position at my current firm, but it also may not be there when I am done.… show moreshow less
On my side of the buisness, the LLM is an impressive designation but do you have to do it full time? I do not think taking two years off makes any sense at all so check out the sequence of events you would have tio follow to do it part time. Hire a Fee-Only" experience financial advisor to help you plan out this opportunity. Good Luck
