Learning legal English and American legal concepts

The Legal English Certificate Program devotes a full year to improving students’ legal English skills and providing an important foundation in core American legal concepts. BU Law’s Legal English Certificate Program (or ‘LECP’) is a program jointly developed with BU’s Center for English Language and Orientation Programs (CELOP).

The program is a 25-credit, full-time residential experience where students follow a set curriculum that provides intensive instruction in legal English communication skills, as well as a graduated and foundational exposure to American legal culture, vocabulary, concepts and legal academic skills.
