About this course
The University of Delaware’s American Law and Legal English Institute (ALLEI) was established in 1994 to offer international legal professionals training in the American legal system and legal English communication.
This program benefits uniquely from the experience of the legal community of the State, particularly from the legal activity of the state’s Court of Chancery, an international center for corporate and commercial legal processes. Much of US corporate litigation takes place in Delaware, and the Delaware Bar Association includes some of the most highly regarded attorneys and judges in the United States, many of whom have served as ALLEI faculty over the years.
- ALLEI participants must be legal professionals (lawyers, judges, paralegal, etc.) or law students with at least one year of law school completed.
- ALLEI participants must have at least a high intermediate level of English. No TOEFL or placement test is necessary; instead, if an ALLEI participant does not have sufficiently strong English skills to participate in this program, the ELI reserves the right to place the participant in the Intensive English Program, instead, where he/she can improve his/her English skills.
