Summer Law Programs 2019: Legal English & US Law

A summer program can help students quickly skill-up in important legal topics—whether you're starting an LL.M. in the fall or not

Starting an LL.M. in the fall? You may want to consider signing up for a pre-LL.M. summer program. Especially for non-native English speakers, or those who don't have a grasp of the US legal system, these summer programs can quickly help fill in the gaps. Even those who are not going to start an LL.M. in the fall might find value in a summer law program. 

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

Below you'll find a list of law schools offering summer law programs.
