Legal English

English is a difficult language.

Legal English is more difficult, even for native English speakers.

Washburn has an Intensive English program that will help you become proficient in English and to help you develop your Legal English before starting the LL.M. We know that you need to succeed in your LL.M. and we want you to have all the tools to do so.

There are 3 general levels in the Intensive English program:

  1. Basic
  2. Intermediate
  3. Advanced

You will take a placement test to determine your current level, and you will begin your studies at the appropriate level. Once you have completed the Advanced Level, you may then take Legal English. Legal English will give you exposure through classroom vocabulary buildup, as well as practical experience by sitting in actual law school classes.
