Longer format designed to help lawyers improve English skills alongside legal studies

Boston University School of Law (BU Law) will offer an "Extended" three-semester LL.M.  enrollment option for its LL.M. in American Law Program, Graduate Program in Banking and Financial Law and Graduate Tax Program.

 
This program option is designed for qualified prospective students who might lack the requisite English language skills to begin a full-time LL.M. program. Students would start the program by combining intensive English language classes at Boston University's Center for English Language and Orientation Programs (CELOP) with a lighter load of law courses. 
 
According to the law school, the Extended LL.M. program "is the perfect way to ease into the rigors of law school-an ideal option for anyone with a genuine interest in tax law whose English language skills may not allow him/her to derive maximum benefit from full-time law studies at the outset."
