Program to expose international attorneys to business aspects of the US legal system

The University of Pennsylvania Law School has announced a two-­week certificate program in US Business Law.

The "US Business Law Certificate for International Practitioners" is two weeks long and is aimed at international attorneys who are looking to gain exposure to the business aspects of the US legal system.

The program will begin with a short introduction to the US legal system and its effects on business, then will delve into topics such as mergers and acquisitions, regulatory issues, negotiations, securities laws, and deals.

Beyond small group and case study work, the program will also include a visit to the US Supreme Court and Capitol Building in Washington, DC; a day visiting Wall Street, the financial district, and a New York City firm; and a visit to the Delaware Chancery Court.

To apply for the summer program, prospective students should have or be working towards a law degree in their home country. While there is no TOEFL or IELTS requirement, students should have a firm grasp of English.

Penn Law's new summer law program will take place from July 11 to July 22 in Philadelphia.
