Optional track offers intensive classes on real property and evidence

Boston University School of Law (BU Law) has announced a new optional "Fundamentals Track" for American Law LL.M. students who intend to take a state bar exam. The track will offer with intensive exposure to bar-related topics, taught in a condensed format during the spring semester.
 
The track courses will cover the basic doctrinal concepts of two topics, Real Property and Evidence, which civil law-trained lawyers often identify as the most challenging in bar-preparation material. The two, six-week classes will be offered sequentially, each awarding two credits toward the LL.M. degree, with the expectation that most students will take both – first Real Property, then Evidence – though they may enroll in either class individually.
 
“LL.M. students will still have the option to take the J.D. versions of these classes,” says program director John Riccardi, “but the Fundamental Track offerings will be specifically designed for them.”
 
“The Fundamentals Track is not meant to substitute for a summer bar-preparation program and there are, of course, no guarantees that taking these classes will result in passing the bar," adds Riccardi. "We are confident, however, that the Fundamentals Track option will give students a solid exposure to two challenging and fundamental topics they will encounter on a U.S. bar exam."
 
For more information about the new track, please visit the program website or the school's full LLM GUIDE directory profile.
