Two-Year (Extended) LL.M. with Certificate in Legal English for Foreign-Trained Lawyers
The Two-Year (Extended) LL.M. with a Certificate in Legal English provides international lawyers the opportunity to obtain an LL.M. degree while improving and enhancing their English. It is a program of 4 semesters of full-time study at Georgetown Law, offered for foreign law graduates, leading to both a Master of Laws degree (LL.M.) and a Certificate in Legal English.
The Two-Year (Extended) LL.M. with a Certificate in Legal English is an intensive curriculum that allows highly qualified applicants to develop their general and legal English language skills in a legal context. Students work closely with faculty members who have expertise in both law and linguistics, receiving feedback and individual attention that allows each student to work toward his or her individual goals. Students study both law and English to become better prepared to practice law in a global context.
Specific admission requirements are the same as all LL.M. programs; however, applicants may have a TOEFL score that is lower. Admission criteria include the following:
- A strong record of academic achievement in law studies
- A TOEFL iBT (Internet-based) score of 85-100 points
- Professional legal experience
