Fordham Law launches Legal English Institute

Fordham LawThis coming August, Fordham Law in New York, will welcome its first group of students to study at the School’s Legal English Institute.

The Legal English Institute (LEI), which is open to international law students and graduates, will offer both credit and non-credit courses of study. LEI classes will include Introduction to the US Legal System and Law Study, Foundations of Private Law, Lawyering Skills, Working with Contracts, Communication Pragmatics for Lawyers, and Legal Professional Identity.

Students at the LEI students will develop their legal English and lawyering skills in just one semester, as well as learn about the foundations of the US legal system. Participants in the program are eligible for an F-1 student visa.

Institute co-director the School’s Assistant Dean of International and Non-JD programs, John Terry Dundon, explains, “We are extremely excited about this project. The Legal English Institute is a great foundation for students pursuing a Master of Laws degree and is also a unique stand-alone program for law students and graduates who want a one-semester course of study.”

Students who wish to study an LLM at Fordham Law can use the Legal English Institute as a cornerstone of their LLM studies by completing two semesters of graduate-level coursework after the LEI. This will enable them to gain a Master of Laws in US Law and one of the other seven specialisations on offer.

Students can begin their program at the LEI in either August 2017 or January 2018, email lei@fordham.edu or call 001-212-636-7702 for more information.
