The LL.M. Toolkit explains how hiring non-U.S. trained LL.M.'s can benefit not only firms with overseas offices but also those with significant exposure to international clients and deals. The Toolkit addresses evaluating the needs an LL.M. might meet, the shorter hiring timeline for LL.M.'s, and such considerations as communication skills, bar admission, visa status, credentials, grades, and suitability for both temporary and permanent positions. Tips for effective recruiting are also featured.
