Summer Law Programs 2018: Legal English & US Law

Pre-LL.M. programs on legal English and American law

For non-native English speaking law students, Pre-LL.M. programs offer the chance to improve your language skills so you will be fully prepared for your LL.M. program when it begins in the fall.

Many law schools in the US and UK offer legal English courses over the summer, as well as programs on the local legal systems.

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.

Here we list a number of summer law programs available to students preparing for LL.M. study.

You can also read more about summer law programs on the LLM GUIDE article Summer Law Programs for Incoming LL.M. Students.
