The Indiana University Maurer School of Law has launched a new program offering an LLM with additional English-language instruction.
The two-year LLM with English for law program is a two-step program for applicants who do not yet meet the English proficiency requirements for direct admission to the standard LLM degree program. Successful applicants are admitted first to the LLM Pathway program, a year-long program similar to conditional admission.
In the Pathway, students will learn about the US legal system and master legal English while earning 12 English for law credits and four credits toward the LLM degree. Much like conditional admission, upon satisfactory completion of the Pathway year, students then continue to the LLM degree program, where they will select courses to complete the remaining 20 credit hours needed to earn the degree. Two-year LLM students also have the option to specialize in one of six areas of the law.
The Maurer School of Law's LLM program is one of the oldest in the nation, having been founded over a century ago. More details about the two-year LLM and the school's other graduate programs can be found on the school's website.
