Two-Year LL.M. at Georgetown Begins This Year; Applications Due Feb 15

New course aims to boost Legal English skills of foreign lawyers

This autumn, Georgetown University Law Center (GULC) is introducing a new, two-year LL.M. course designed for foreign lawyers without the level of English proficiency typically required to secure admission at a top U.S. LL.M. program.

The first year of the course will be devoted to improving students' Legal English skills. The course will focus on English in the legal context, and will be taught by both law and linguistics faculty. According to the law school, by the second year of the program, students "should have a level of professional fluency that will permit them not only to complete the credits required for graduation but also to engage fully in a sophisticated academic program."

Application deadline is February 15, 2008.

For more information about this and other LL.M. programs at Georgetown, please visit the GULC website.
