Lawyers educated in other countries must hold a law degree from an accredited university or be admitted to practice before the highest court in their jurisdiction.
Applicants must demonstrate their ability to perform satisfactory graduate work by presenting evidence of either a high grade-point average or superior class standing at the school where they earned their law degree.
University of Houston Law Center (UHLC) along with the Language and Culture Center (LCC) offers English as an Additional Language (EAL) class with a focus on legal English. This 4-week intensive online course can help you satisfy English language requirements for the US Law LLM (master of laws) program. We strongly encourage our foreign applicants, from non-English speaking countries, to take this certificate course to better prepare for potential study at UHLC.
