Our LL.M. in American Law offers the opportunity to broaden professional goals through the study of U.S. laws and the American legal process.
Study American Law at a World-Renowned Research Institution
Students will take two foundational courses, one introducing students to the basics of the American legal system, and a second in American legal writing. The remainder of the program allows students to tailor their experience based on their own unique goals and interests from an array of advanced course offerings such as International and Comparative Disability Law, Corporations and National Security Law. The College of Law offers personalized academic advisors to assist with course selection and academic advising.
Enhance your “Legal English” skills before arriving on campus
Syracuse University College of Law, in partnership with SU's English Language Institute, will be offering a “Legal English” course during the 2013 Summer session. The “Legal English” course provides a foundation in legal terminology and language usage in various areas (listening, speaking, reading, legal research, and writing) for nonnative speakers of English. All components include group and pair work as well as individual assignments. The course provides 25 instructional hours per week. The College of Law encourages its LL.M. students to enroll in the Legal English summer session in order to enhance their immersion in the classroom setting and to better facilitate contributions to legal discourse within the College of Law community.
 
We invite you to learn more about our LL.M. program and how it is specifically designed to prepare foreign lawyers for the challenges of global practice. 
 
Please forward information about this program on to colleagues and prospective students who may be interested in our LL.M. in American Law.
 
Unfortunately, SU scholarships are not currently available for students in the LLM Program although funding may be available from the student’s home country.
