Miami Law to Launch International Law LL.M. with Intensive English Program

Program adds an additional semester to the LL.M. to help students with language skills

In 2016, the University of Miami School of Law will launch a new International LL.M. program with an intensive English option.

The program is aimed at foreign lawyers who would like to work on their English language proficiency before starting on LL.M. curriculum. 

The new LL.M. is three semesters long. Students will start during the spring semester (in January), during which they'll work on achieving the English language and communication skills necessary to be successful in the rest of the course.

After the spring semester, students join the standard International LL.M. class and proceed with the regular classes.

Once students join in with the regular program, they'll also have the option to pursue another of Miami's LL.M. programs, including one focused in estate planning and another in entertainment, arts, and sports law; among others.

The International Law LL.M. with Intensive English program is set to launch in January 2016. Applications will be accepted by December 15, 2015.

For more information or to apply, please see Miami Law's International Law LL.M. with Intensive English course webpage.
