The Legal English Program is an intensive program designed for international students who plan on attending law school in the U.S. as well as for practicing international lawyers seeking to refine their English language skills. Students on an F-1 or J-1 visa take the full program, while students on a tourist visa can enroll in individual courses. Students have the opportunity to attend CU Law School events, lectures, and activities. Students who have been conditionally admitted to the CU Law School and who choose to enroll in the Legal English Program must successfully complete all requirements of the Legal English Program prior to beginning their LLM program at the university.  

Practicing International lawyers who are not conditionally admitted to the CU Law School must have a minimum B2 CEFR proficiency level or a 72 TOEFL score to register for the program.
