Northwestern to offer new Accelerated LLM programme
Northwestern University School of Law in Chicago has announced the launch of its Accelerated LLM (ALLM) programme. This is a 15-week degree programme that will bring together law graduates from diverse non-US jurisdictions and give them the opportunity to study at the Chicago-based School of Law.
ALLM students will spend the summer, from May until the middle of August, studying the legal issues relating to business law, with particular focus on transnational matters.
Northwestern University is hoping to attract candidates with experience in practice or other settings, who bring an appreciation of their home country’s legal system, as well as an interest in learning in a truly global setting. Potential candidates include law graduates working in law firms, the judiciary, business organizations, government, non-profit organizations and NGOs, and others interested in the governance of business organizations.
The Accelerated LLM programme is ideal for candidates who are unable to spend a whole year studying in the United States - as is the case in a traditional LLM programme.
