Guide to LLM Study in the United States- Introduction
This article was written by David A. Levy, former Kronstein Research Fellow at the International Law Institute. It is intended as an overview of graduate legal study in the U.S. and is based solely on the opinion of the author.
This article is intended to provide information for international students who are considering the study of law in the United States. It is based on my experiences at three law schools with significant LL.M. programs, Southern Methodist University, the Washington College of Law at American University, and Georgetown University Law Center, as well as my work as a lecturer at the International Law Institute's Orientation in the U.S. Legal System course. Part one discusses the graduate law experience in American law schools and considers such issues as American teaching techniques, class selections, and examinations and research papers. Part two discusses bar review courses and provides information about state bar examinations. Finally, part three discusses programs which are available to help prepare you for the study of law in the United States.
