Berkeley Launches Online Fundamentals of US Law Course

Six-week program designed partly for prospective LL.M. students from abroad

Berkeley Law Online will launch its first course - "Fundamentals of US Law" - in early May. The six-week online course introduces law students to the American legal system and the common-law method of case analysis.  

According to Berkeley Law, the program is designed for "international lawyers who want to learn about the basics of the US legal system, but don’t currently have time for an in-resident LL.M. program," as well as "prospective LL.M. students who want to get an early jump on their coursework."

"Fundamentals of US Law" will run from May 12 to June 27, and will be taught by Berkeley Law Professor William H.D. Fernholz. Students who enroll in the program should expect to commit to four hours of instruction and twelve hours of reading and preparation per week. 

Registration for the program officially closes on May 9; though "pre-class" activities begin on April 28. 

Berkeley is also planning to launch an online "Introduction to IP Law" class later this year.
