Boston University Two Year LL.M. / Legal English Certificate Program


execllm
The Legal English Certificate Program (or LECP), has been jointly developed by Boston University School of Law and BUs Center for English Language and Orientation Programs (CELOP). It is a 25 credit, full-time residential program over one school year, designed to provide intensive instruction in English communication and legal English, as well as a graduated and foundational exposure to American legal culture, vocabulary, concepts and law school studies, including academic skills. It is offered in two tracks: the Certificate-only track, a one year program for those not seeking entry into a BU Law LL.M. program; and the Two-Year LL.M. track, a one year program designed to prepare students for success in one of our LL.M. programs. By enrolling in the Two-Year LL.M. track, students will improve their English skills so they are prepared to matriculate in BU Laws LL.M. programs, and learn the academic skills and background knowledge necessary to succeed in a demanding graduate program. Students who enroll in the Certificate-only track will gain many of the same skills and expertise but will not proceed into BU Law graduate studies. Both tracks provide a holistic, immersive and rigorous learning experience from one of the nations foremost centers for legal English studies.
