********************************************************** A NOTE ABOUT THE AMERICAN BAR (INFORMATION FOR FOREIGN-TRAINED LL.M. STUDENTS)

The LL.M. in International Legal Studies (ILSP) is a specialist degree and is designed to prepare lawyers to practice law in an international arena. Consequently, LL.M. students may take only those courses from the approved ILSP curriculum, which contains approximately forty-five courses/ seminars each semester. The LL.M. program is not intended to prepare students for admission to the American legal profession.

Students interested in sitting for a bar exam should note that the rules for the various state bar exams are subject to change. Students interested in taking a bar exam are advised to consult with the relevant bar organizations or authorities to determine their requirements. For more information about bar passage, please use the following link: www.abanet.org/legaledu.

Any prospective student whose career objective is to practice law in the U.S. should consider enrolling in WCL's J.D. program, which is designed for this purpose.
