Students of 15-week summer program must complete necessary courses to qualify

Northwestern University School of Law has announced that graduates of its accelerated LL.M. program may now qualify to take the California Bar Exam. While the law school does not guarantee bar exam eligibility to accelerated LL.M. students for any state, the California State Bar has notified Northwestern Law that the current accelerated LL.M. program will qualify a student to take the California Bar Exam.  

Along with other courses in the accelerated LL.M. program, students must satisfactorily complete the program's Professional Responsibility course to meet California Bar Exam eligibility requirements.

Northwestern Law’s accelerated LL.M. program allows students to earn an LL.M. in an intensive 15-week summer block (May through mid-August) in Chicago, or two 7.5-week sessions over two summers.

For more information, please visit the Northwestern Accelerated LL.M. program website or their full LLM GUIDE directory profile.
