General Course Description:

This course, required for any LL.M. student who has not previously studied law in the United States, is designed to prepare the foreign lawyer for American legal study. The course provides information on the workings of the U.S. legal system, discusses the common law method, and covers introductory constitutional principles. Students will learn what to anticipate in the law school classroom, how to brief a case, and how to conduct legal research. The majority of class sessions are held prior to the start of fall semester, with a few sessions on proper citation methods and exam preparation held late in the fall.
