) Other best New York LL.M. programs:
- Bankruptcy Law – St. John’s

Here is the New York Law Journal's description of the rankings:
[The rankings] are not a scientific survey of the marketplace but rather purely democratic. We asked you to vote for your favorites – and did you ever. With over 2,000 votes, the response exceeded our expectations. The voting was conducted via online ballot, compiled by the sales and marketing teams of the New York Law Journal. ... We took great pains to ensure the voting was fair. Any nonattorney or legal professionals (or anyone who we could not validate was a legitimate end user) vote was disqualified.
