The American Legal Studies program should appeal to foreign law graduates who are encouraged to obtain legal training in U.S. law and practice in order to compete more effectively with U.S. law firms operating in foreign countries.

The program helps to qualify a candidate for eligibility to sit for the New York State Bar Examination and to be admitted to practice law in New York. Foreign law graduates who seek U.S. law training in order to make themselves more attractive to U.S. law firms and corporations will also benefit from this degree program. The Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University has a package of courses in American Litigation and Advocacy that are of particular interest to foreign law graduates who want comprehensive exposure to American approaches to litigation theory and techniques in a variety of lecture, simulation, and practice settings. Hofstra Law is the Northeast region's base for the National Institute of Trial Advocacy, and the Hofstra faculty has extensive expertise in American litigation and advocacy.... [-]

Touro’s LL.M. program for foreign law graduates is the third oldest such program in the New York City metropolitan area, after those of Columbia and New York University. It is a 27-credit program designed to provide grounding in the United States jurisprudence, law, and procedure. The program is intended to serve the needs of two distinct groups:

foreign-qualified lawyers living in the U.S. who hope to resume here the legal careers they began abroad. attorneys coming from abroad who seek familiarity with U.S. law and legal institutions, so they may use that knowledge in their foreign legal careers.

The program, which emphasizes the development of analytical skills, was the first in the country to offer a research and writing course designed exclusively for foreign lawyers as well as a course devoted specifically to the U.S. legal system. Distinctive features of the program include:... [-]

Both tracks require successfully completing a minimum of 24 credit hours from the Indian law curriculum.

Students are encouraged to make a preliminary choice of which track they intend to pursue when they enter the program. That preliminary choice, however, is not binding on the student. The faculty is committed to working individually with each student to meet particular academic needs.... [-]

The one-year LL.M. (Master of Laws) degree is for foreign lawyers who have already earned primary law degrees from universities in their home countries. The program offers international lawyers the opportunity to develop mastery of key areas of American law at one of the nation’s top law schools, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH). LL.M. students receive legal training in American law through UNC School of Law’s nationally recognized centers and areas of academic strength in legal fields that are in high demand throughout the world (e.g., banking and finance law, energy/natural resources law, and IP law). LL.M. students take most of their classes together with J.D. students, enabling them to share their international perspectives while learning American law. LL.M. students may focus on a specified track of expertise offered within a few select areas of law, or LL.M. students can pursue a more general United States legal system coverage. There is not an official limit to the size of the LL.M. cohort each year. However, we are a newer program and thus, are smaller in size than many other LL.M. degree programs. Due to this smaller size of the program, LL.M. students receive strong individual attention and assistance from the LL.M. program administration, LL.M. faculty director, and the law school faculty. LL.M. students are provided the additional resources of two Dean’s Fellows and an Honors Writing Scholar serving as peer mentors and student advisers to the LL.M. students. ... [-]

Individualized attention, integration with US law students, an extensive and flexible program of study, reasonable costs, and an outstanding faculty and location: these are just a few aspects of the LL.M. Program in U.S. Legal Studies that foreign law graduates can expect from the UConn Law.

The U.S. Legal Studies LL.M. Program at UConn Law accepts only a small number of highly qualified foreign law graduates each year—normally a class of between (20) and (30) students. This ensures that all admitted candidates receive individualized attention from both the faculty and staff throughout their stay. Virtually all classes are taken with J.D. students and the Law School offers among the best student-faculty ratios of any law school in the United States (11:1) as well as a dedicated staff focusing specifically on the needs of international students....
