Braving the sub-zero temperatures brought on by the arctic “deep freeze,” Penn State Law’s new class of LL.M. and S.J.D. students arrived this week. Orientation started for students joining the international graduate programs from Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Iran, Norway, Brazil, Iraq and the Kurdistan region of Iraq, and China. In addition to IDs and Angel access, the students got an introduction to U.S. law and an overview of reading and briefing cases.
This first-of-its-kind online program is designed to give busy legal professionals around the world a flexible method for learning about the U.S. common law system.
From pre-trial motions to sentence hearings, nine Penn State Law LL.M. students from around the world are experiencing the American legal system firsthand as interns in Penn State Law’s LL.M. Judicial Observation Internship program.
