WashULaw’s Intensive Legal English Program (ILEP) prepares incoming LLM students by focusing on the skills and fundamental legal knowledge they will need to be successful in a US law program. Students who successfully complete the program earn a Certificate of Legal English from Washington University in St. Louis School of Law.

Fall 2021 – ILEP Online Experience – Attend from Anywhere in the World

For Fall 2021, we are again offering an 8-week online course that features live academic instruction focusing on legal practice and classroom comprehension and communication. Robust English-language immersion and an introduction to the U.S. legal process will provide a valuable framework for your LLM coursework in 2022.

  • Real-time virtual classroom instruction via live video, including participation in classroom discussion and working on projects with professors and other students.
  • Small class sizes working with experienced legal-English professors.
  • Opportunities for informal discussion, cultural exploration, and relationship building with other students entering the LLM program at WashULaw.
  • Classes held 3 days per week in addition to significant work outside of class.

FREE FOR WASHULAW LLM STUDENTS: Although the cost for ILEP for Fall 2021 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).

OPEN TO PROFESSIONALS AND STUDENTS WHO ARE NOT WASHULAW STUDENTS: This Fall 2021 we are pleased to again offer ILEP to students who are not part of our LLM programs.  Some partial scholarships are available for the Fall 2021 term. For information and to register for ILEP, please contact Mark Bass.
