Flex-LLM in U.S. Law
The Flex-LLM in U.S. Law is designed for students who hold a non-U.S. law degree and want to meet the high standards required to sit for the D.C. Bar. It covers the structure of the U.S. government and legal system and includes substantive areas of law that meet the subject credit requirements of the D.C. Bar examination. The full-time study from January or May will prepare you to sit for the Bar exam in the following year, in February or July.
The goal of the Flex-LLM in U.S. Law program is to prepare you for the D.C. Bar exam. Courses are limited to those subjects tested on the exam. The curriculum interweaves practice questions and exam preparation. A complete Bar preparation course is included at no additional cost.
