New program allows overseas lawyers to get degree in 15 weeks

Northwestern University School of Law has announced it will offer an Accelerated LL.M. (ALLM) program that will make it possible for students to earn an LL.M. in only 15 weeks.

According to the law school, the new program is designed for lawyers "whose personal or professional obligations limit their ability to spend an entire academic year studying in the United States in a traditional LLM program."

The program includes a prescribe set of 20 law credit hours. Generally, students are expended to spend five hours a day in class, five days a week.

The program can be completed in a single summer (in two consecutive six-week sessions from May through mid-August) or over the course of two summers.

Applications for the program will become available on June 1, 2010.
