Foreign-Trained Lawyers Info Session at UM Law


The University of Miami School of Law is hosting an information session for foreign lawyers on April 4 at 6:30 p.m. on the Coral Gables campus.

Miami Law offers paths to practice for foreign-trained lawyers in the United States through LL.M. and J.D. programs, including a semester of studying in intensive legal English. The session will delve into the requirements to practice in the U.S. and more information about the offerings.

The U.S. and Transnational Law for Foreign Lawyers specialization within the International Law LL.M. program is specifically designed for the foreign law graduate. The program welcomes attorneys from all over the world to continue the study of law in a context that emphasizes American common law and its impact in the global economy. This one-year program is ideal for international attorneys who want to learn about the U.S. legal system, individuals wanting to explore the field of international law outside of his or her own country, those looking for the possibility of practicing law in the U.S., and foreign attorneys who want to do an LL.M. and first need to improve English skills

For more information, contact Yasmina Assis, at 305-284-5402; the event is free and open to the public, with registration.
