BU Announces New Full-Time Legal English Certification Program

Program can be combined with LL.M. program over two years

Boston University (BU) School of Law has announced it will launch a new Legal English Certification Program (LECP) in Fall 2014.

According to BU, the full-time, two-semester program is "designed for international lawyers and professionals who seek to improve their general English and legal English communications skills."

The program was developed in collaboration with BU’s Center for English Language and Orientation Programs (CELOP). It will be available through two tracks: a two-year LL.M. track for international LL.M. candidates whose admission to a BU Law LL.M. program is conditioned on their completing the one-year LECP; and a “certificate-only” track, open to foreign professionals—including non-lawyers—who seek only a legal English training credential, with no plans to pursue LL.M. studies.
