At WashULaw, we are committed to your success in our law programs and have designed the Intensive Legal English Program (ILEP) with the needs of international LLM students specifically in mind.

Fall 2020 – ILEP Online Experience

For Fall 2020, we are offering an 8-week online course that features live academic instruction focusing on legal practice and classroom comprehension and communication.  The robust language immersion, plus an introduction to the U.S. legal process, is a valuable framework for your coursework in 2021.

  • Real-time virtual classroom instruction with all students participating via video and participating in classroom discussion and projects.
  • Small sections size working with experienced legal-English professors.
  • Opportunities for informal discussion, cultural exploration, and relationship building.
  • Classes held 3 sessions a week with significant work outside of class.

Although the cost for ILEP for Fall 2020 is $7,700 USD, all admitted full-time WashULaw LLM students have the opportunity to participate in the program FREE OF CHARGE (space is limited).

This Fall 2020 we are pleased to offer ILEP to students who are not part of our LLM programs.  Some partial scholarships are available for the Fall 2020 term.  For information and to register for ILEP, please contact Prof. Pam Dzunu at
