Most recently, a new LL.M. Program was introduced in an effort to attract international attorneys and give them the chance to study American law and see how the various courts function within our legal system. Not only that, but the program includes intricate and specific efforts to ensure the legalese is accurate in both the written and spoken word for those who may not be native English speakers. Currently, the program focuses on intellectual property law, refugee and immigration law and intellectual property law. When these participants are ready, the program will then help prepare them for the New York state bar examination. All enrolled are extended housing and other guaranteed accommodations.
The faculty is comprised of some of the most brilliant legal minds found anywhere. Brooklyn Law School Professor Michael Gerber currently serves as the Interim Dean and uses his vast experience to guide the student body into their respective futures.
