The Two-Year LLM allows students to enroll in the Legal English Certificate Program in their first year, and one of BU Law’s LLM programs in their second year. The goal of the Two-Year LLM is to first provide students with the legal English and studies necessary to succeed in LLM studies, and then to let those students develop further as legal professionals and scholars in an LLM program.
Legal English Certificate Program (LECP)
The program is a 25-credit, full-time residential experience where students follow a set curriculum that provides intensive instruction in English and legal English communication skills, as well as a graduated and foundational exposure to American legal culture, vocabulary, concepts and legal academic skills.
