Boston University School of Law has announced the launch of a new, three-week long summer program aimed at non-US trained lawyers.
The new program, "US Business Law for the International Lawyer," is jointly developed by BU School of Law and the Center for English Language and Orientation Programs and is open to participants with at least three years of work experience.
The program will cover core topics in US business law—such as entity formation, contract drafting and negotiation, intellectual property protection and dispute resolution—and will also integrate instruction in legal English and hands-on training. The program will also include visits to law firms, courts, and other sites throughout Boston. Ultimately, students will come away with a grasp of the terminology and vocabulary involved in US legal discourse.
US Business Law for the International Lawyer will launch this summer. The program will begin on July 26 and end on August 16.
