Legal Language Institute
The Legal Language Institute offers one- or three-week summer program designed specifically for foreign lawyers and law students seeking intensive Legal English training. This new Institute will welcome students beginning in July 2014, and it will prove beneficial for incoming international students – whether enrolled in Brooklyn Law School’s LL.M. program for foreign-trained lawyers or elsewhere – before they start their law school studies in the United States.
As the Institute expands, it will include intensive courses on legal terminology in other languages, thereby helping American lawyers improve communication skills with foreign clients and colleagues. The Institute will be 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.
