University of Houston Announces Online Legal English Class

Program to start later in June; incoming LL.M. participants as well as prospective law students are welcome to apply

The University of Houston Law Center (UHLC) has announced the launch of a new legal English course, which will be delivered online.

The new online course will be aimed primarily at foreign law students: both those who have been admitted to study law at UHLC as well as prospective law students who may plan to return to school at some point in the future.

The English as an Additional Language (EAL) certificate will cover four main areas: written English, oral communication, English comprehension, and legal language. 

The course is not a replacement for the IELTS or TOEFL, so participants will have to take an English test before entering the course (as required for the UHLC LL.M. program.)

The course will run between June 24 and July 27. 

For more information, please see UHLC's EAL course page.
