Loyola Law School, Los Angeles has announced plans to launch a new LL.M. program for foreign-trained attorneys in August 2012. The school has submitted its acquiescence request for the new program to the American Bar Association (ABA). The ABA decision is still pending.
Students on the new, ten-month program will be required to take two courses - Introduction to American Law and American Legal Research and Writing for Foreign Lawyers - and will select their remaining courses from the law school's J.D. curriculum.
Applications to program are now being accepted until February 1, 2012.
