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.

ILEP is a 4-week summer experience with daily live academic instruction focusing on legal practice and classroom comprehension and communication.  You will also gain an introduction to U.S. legal and judicial systems.  The robust language immersion, plus an introduction to the U.S. legal process, is a valuable framework for your coursework this fall.

The online ILEP experience (Summer 2020) will consist of real-time virtual classroom instruction with small sections of students working with experienced legal-English professors.  You will participate via video and participate daily in the classroom discussion and projects.  All students will have opportunities for informal discussion, cultural exploration, and relationship building.

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

TO REGISTER for ILEP: To reserve your place in ILEP 2020, log-in to your LLM or MLS application and pay the non-refundable ILEP and LLM (or MLS) program deposits.  Your ILEP deposit will be credited to your fall full-time tuition.

We recommend that you submit your deposits as soon as possible, as space in this program is limited. Students have found this program to be an extremely valuable preparation for the LLM program and we hope you choose to take advantage of it.
