Does the completion of the accelerated LLM program enable the graduate to sit for the bar exam?
The accelerated LLM program is not intended to qualify foreign lawyers to take the bar examination or to practice law in the United States; in many states, including Illinois, these degrees are not sufficient to take the exam. Because bar exam qualification is subject to individual state regulation and may change year to year, it is up to the applicant and student to assess bar eligibility.
Can I complete the program in two summers?
In addition to completing the program in one summer, students also have the option of completing the program in two summers. Students, however, must begin the program in May of the starting year.
