June 5, 2020 – International students admitted to the University of Houston Law Center or prospective law students can brush up on legal language, oral communications and other skills as part of a custom-created online course being conducted by the UH Language and Culture Center. The English as an Additional Language Certificate course will be held online and runs from June 24-July 27.
"We are excited to offer this EAL certificate course to foreign trained lawyers who are preparing to study law in the USA,” said Executive Director of Global and Graduate Programs Karen Jones. “Even those who have done well on the TOEFL, IELTS or other English proficiency exams, will benefit greatly from this course. It not only allows students to improve their English proficiency, but also helps prepare them for legal study at the University of Houston Law Center or anywhere in the United States by covering the legal language necessary in the study of U.S. law.
"We appreciate the challenges foreign lawyers encounter with English proficiency and the study of law in the USA. We are happy to offer this resource in a four-week intensive course, available to them this summer fully online."
