Abstract

Law schools have an obligation to provide academic support to international students in LL.M. programs. Even students who are attorneys with practice experience abroad are likely to be novices in the study of American law. Like their first-year J.D. counterparts, they can benefit from instruction in the basics of the American legal system, assistance with communication in written and spoken English, and frank discussion of the best practices for success in the classroom. This article provides four suggestions for assisting international students studying in US LL.M. programs.

Keywords: international, LL.M., academic support, cultural support
