Syracuse University (SU) College of Law, in partnership with SU’s English Language Institute, will be offering a “Legal English” course during the 2013 Summer session. This course is available to international students enrolled in the College of Law’s Master of Laws (LL.M.) in American Law. The “Legal English” course comprises three components designed to provide a foundation in legal terminology and language usage in various areas (listening, speaking, reading, legal research, and writing) for nonnative speakers of English who intend to earn an LL.M. degree in the United States. All components include group and pair work as well as individual assignments. The course provides 25 instructional hours per week. The College of Law’s LL.M. in American Law is a 24-credit program that can be completed in one academic year. LL.M. students will study American legal principles in the setting of a world-renowned research institution. The College of Law encourages its LL.M. students to enroll in the “Legal English” summer session in order to enhance their immersion into the classroom setting and to better facilitate contributions to legal discourse within the College of Law community.
