Fordham University School of Law is launching a Legal English Institute which will run a Legal English program for international law students.
Students can choose between credit and non-credit study on the program which will be taught in Manhattan, New York City.
The three-and-a-half month program is a little longer than the standard Legal English summer program that many other law schools offer. But those who choose the for-credit option can use it as the beginning of their LL.M. studies, needing only two additional semesters of study to obtain a full LL.M.
The program, which will run for the first time beginning this August and then again in January, includes an introduction to the U.S. legal system and courses in lawyering skills, communication for lawyers and legal professional identity.
The program is open to students who have studied law outside the United States.
Contact Fordham University School of Law for more information on the program.
