1 The Kline School of Law LLM: Set yourself apart. AMERICAN LEGAL PRACTICE

2 Distinguish yourself from the competition with the Kline School of Law s LLM program in American Legal Practice. Our unique approach offers LLM students an opportunity to learn from unusually talented faculty with a unique commitment to teaching the distinct skills of American legal practice. U.S. News has recognized Drexel University as one of the Top 7 Up-and-Coming Universities in the United States. The Kline School of Law has earned similar acclaim from U.S. News, which ranks its legal writing, clinics, and health law programs among the best in the United States. The Kline School of Law stands apart from other law schools by offering small classes and personalized education in a close and supportive community. And most importantly, the program gives LLM students an opportunity to gain firsthand legal experience by working side by side with American lawyers. Our Coop Externship allows highly qualified LLM students to earn credit by working in corporate offices, law firms, government agencies and the courts for 15 weeks.

3 Expand your education. AMERICAN LEGAL PRACTICE The LLM is a 24-credit program for individuals who hold law degrees from accredited institutions outside of the U.S. LLM students can focus on one of four specially designed LLM course tracks or work with faculty to develop an individualized plan of study suited to their own professional goals.

4 A practical approach and a personal focus. AMERICAN LEGAL PRACTICE Drexel University is an undisputed national leader in experiential education, and the law school puts hands-on learning at the center of its curriculum through externship, clinical and community-based programs. The LLM program builds on relationships the law school has established with hundreds of externship partners in the Philadelphia area that include major corporations, global law firms, a variety of government agencies and federal and state courts. Our unique LLM Co-op Externship allows students who have a strong facility in English and have demonstrated success in the classroom to work inside a corporation, a law firm, a judicial office or a government agency. Participating students spend up to two days each week gaining hands-on exposure to the practice of law, receiving one-on-one guidance from accomplished attorneys. Every LLM student works with a faculty advisor to design a curriculum unique to his or her own interests and then gets matched with a JD student partner to navigate both the law school community and Philadelphia. LLM students take part in the life of the law school, which hosts a wide variety of speakers, panels and conferences every semester. The events are often sponsored by student organizations focused on business law, intellectual property law, international law and other areas of practice. They provide an additional opportunity to learn more about U.S. law, professional practice and career strategies, while enabling students to socialize with other members of the law school community. Our Co-op Externship Program gives students a chance to learn how American lawyers do business and to meet prominent professionals in the field. Professor Reena Parambath

7 A flexible curriculum. CURRICULUM LLM students can build a personalized curriculum taking advantage of the Kline School of Law s diverse and dynamic course offerings. The law school has also designed four specialized LLM tracks for those who have a particular interest in business and commercial law, intellectual property law, international law, or U.S. bar exam preparation. FOUR SPECIALLY DESIGNED LLM TRACKS Our four LLM tracks incorporate foundation courses that include: Introduction to U.S. Legal Systems Legal Methods Contract Law Legal English Drexel HOW WILL YOU SET YOURSELF APART?

8 BUSINESS & COMMERCIAL LAW Business and commercial law. Business and trade are cornerstones of many legal practice groups around the world. This track provides students with crucial insights into American business law that will enable them to serve a broad clientele more effectively. CORE COURSES: Business Organizations Contract Drafting International Business Transactions RELATED ELECTIVES: Bankruptcy Law Co-op Externship Insurance Law Patent Law Private Equity and Venture Capital Law Sales Secured Transactions Securities Regulation

9

10 BUSINESS & COMMERCIAL LAW Given the significant role of the United States in the technology, pharmaceutical and media sectors, intellectual property law is an essential part of American legal practice. This track gives students invaluable tools for navigating this important arena. Intellectual property law. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY LAW CORE COURSES: Copyright Law Patent Law Trademark Law RELATED ELECTIVES: Contract Drafting Co-op Externship Intellectual Property Licensing Internet Law Patent Litigation Patent Prosecution Privacy Law Private Equity and Venture Capital

11

12 International law. BUSINESS & COMMERCIAL LAW INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY LAW For many lawyers, it s no longer enough to understand the framework of law in their home countries. This track enables students to understand the complex matrix of international laws that will give them a competitive edge in professional practice. CORE COURSES: European Union Law International Business Transactions International Human Rights International Law RELATED ELECTIVES: Admiralty and Law of the Sea Contract Drafting Co-op Externship Immigration Law Refugee and Asylum Law INTERNATIONAL LAW

13

14 U.S. BAR EXAM PREPARATION Selected U.S. states permit foreign-trained attorneys with an LLM to sit for their bar examinations. This track is designed to provide students both the substantive knowledge, and the minimum curricular requirements, to sit for the bar in those states. Students seeking admission in this way should check with the individual states to determine their admission requirements. Your faculty advisor will assist you in creating a plan of study that meets those requirements. Like JD students, LLM students intending to sit for a U.S. bar exam should plan to enroll in a commercial bar preparation class after obtaining their degree. COURSES MAY INCLUDE: Civil Procedure Constitutional Law Criminal Law Criminal Procedure: Investigations Evidence Federal Income Tax Professional Responsibility Property Torts

15 U.S. bar exam preparation. Details of this track and the number of required credits may vary, based on the state bar the student seeks to join.

16 Legal English Drexel LEGAL ENGLISH One of the key benefits of the LLM program is that non-native English speakers build proficiency in legal English they need to succeed in professional practice. English language courses will give students a solid foundation for understanding language and terminology distinct to American law and the U.S. legal system. Students will hone these skills, as well as their conversational English, by actively participating in their standard coursework, as well as by joining the broader community of students at the Kline School of Law. Students can supplement their training by taking an introductory course the summer prior to the program or at any time during the program, through Drexel s renowned English Language Center. The introductory course will enhance students participation in classroom discussions, their understanding of written legal materials and their ability to write about legal topics clearly and accurately.

The neighborhood feels like a small college town that features 7,500 international students within 2 square kilometers, an active intellectual community, restaurants that serve diverse international cuisines, and book stores, clothing retailers and other shops.

21 Philadelphia: No better location in the United States PHILADELPHIA Drexel University The campus is located close to the airport and just blocks from 30th Street Train Station, putting it within easy reach of other major cities.
