New opportunity for students not otherwise entitled to take the exam
This means that students who began the one-year NYU@NUS program this May will be able to take the July 2011 NY state bar exam, provided they complete the NYU LL.M. and fulfill 3 other conditions: complete 16 of 24 credits in classes taught by NYU faculty; take 4 courses designated as "American law courses"; and complete the 100-hour "New York Option" at the end of the LL.M. program that finishes just before the July Bar exam.
The NYU@NUS program is taught primarily in Singapore. Program director Simon Chesterman believes it is the first program taught outside of the United States that enables graduates to sit the NY Bar. The opportunity "comes pursuant to an order of the New York State Court of Appeals issued in September 2009."
