Legal Language Institute

The Legal Language Institute offers a four-week summer program designed specifically for foreign lawyers and law students seeking intensive Legal English training. This course has proven extremely beneficial for incoming international students – whether enrolled in Brooklyn Law School’s LL.M. program for foreign-trained lawyers or elsewhere – before they start law school studies in the United States.

The Institute is now expanding its activities to include intensive courses on the legal systems and terminology of other languages, thereby helping American lawyers improve communication skills with foreign clients and colleagues. The Institute is affiliated with the Law School’s Center for the Study of Law, Language and Cognition, renowned for its studies on how the cognitive sciences affect law at both the theoretical and practical level.
