New York university launches new LLM programme
Fordham University School of Law in New York City has just announce its newest LLM specialty programme, the Master of Laws in US and Comparative Law. This programme, which will start in Autumn 2010, is designed for students who have received their primary legal education in a civil law country and who are interested in an introduction to the fundamental principles of the US legal system and basic concepts of US law.
This programme is geared toward lawyers who plan to return to their home countries within a few years of receiving the LLM degree and is most suitable for civil-trained lawyers who work in government service, general practice law firms, or academia.
Students taking part in this programme are required to enrol in Introduction to the US Legal System. They must also enrol in Legal Research and Writing for LLM Students, unless they are a member of the bar of any US jurisdiction. In addition to this they must enrol in courses designed especially for them that will give them an overview of various fields of US public and private law. Students may select the remainder of their courses from among the wide range of courses open to LLM students.
