Upcoming 2016 Summer Law Programs in Legal English and US Law

Pre-LL.M. and other programs focusing on language skills and American law

Update: see LLM GUIDE's 2017 listing of summer law programs here

Below is the 2016 listing of some of the summer programs available to pre-LL.M. students and foreign lawyers looking to improve their legal English and/or to study US law.

Before starting an LL.M., many students whose native language is not English may find it useful to brush up on their English-language skills, especially in a legal context. Likewise, for those US-bound students who are unfamiliar with US Law, a short program covering the basics can help them get up to speed quickly before starting an LL.M.
