Legal English and Communication Skills

Lawyers are communicators. Penn State Law’s LL.M. program is designed to help our students build the writing and common law analysis skills needed to communicate effectively in English to clients, judges and other lawyers. We offer specific resources especially tailored for the LL.M. students' needs.

To prepare for the LL.M. year, many students enroll in the three-week optional summer course Intensive Introduction to U.S. Law.
