St. John&rsquo,s University School of Law offers a non-degree program, American Law: Discourse and Analysis Program (ALDA), which can be combined with the TLP LLM program at St. John&rsquo,s.
The program offers foreign-trained lawyers the opportunity to:
* master the core principles and concepts of American law while
* achieving proficiency in technical legal English.
The ALDA pathway enables students to begin their core LLM coursework with a professional level of proficiency in the language, cultural and analytical skills used in American law. The program teaches the key aspects of U.S. law (in particular constitutional structure, rights, and civil procedure) and the legal analysis skills (spoken and written) required for success in the LLM program.
