The curriculum is designed to help candidates achieve bar passage and meets all the requirements to sit for the bar exam in New York and Washington, DC. Our LLM in American Legal Studies students receive training in case briefing, legal writing, and US bar exam preparation, and take all classes together with JD students.|
