2017 Summer Law Programs: Legal English & US Law

Pre-LL.M. and summer programs on legal language skills and American law

[see LLM GUIDE's 2018 Listing of Summer Law Programs]

Many law school in the US offer pre-LL.M. students the chance to improve their legal English and/or study the basics of US law before beginning an LL.M. program. A few schools in the UK offer this as well.

For students for whom English is not their native language, specific study in legal English can help bring them up to speed for the LL.M. For those who aren’t familiar with US law, a short pre-law program can help them to cover the basics before starting their LL.M. program.
