America is known as the ‘land of the free’, but as John Locke once observed, “Where there is no law, there is no freedom.” This course will familiarize international lawyers and law students with the laws (and liberties) of American society.  Students will improve their ability to write effectively in English while engaging in an overview of the American legal system, instruction on how to read legal cases, and strategies for legal writing, research and analysis. Suitable for intermediate through advanced ESL students, this course is of special interest to business and legal professionals and students, including LL.M. students who wish to prepare for the fall semester at U.S. law schools.

Please note, students enrolling in Colwrit/ESL 9O course must take an online placement exam.
