Legal English Institute Testimonials

Pedro Almeida (Brazil)

LEI Testimonial My semester at Fordham was not only an academic experience, but also a fantastic life experience. I had the chance to broaden my horizons, and rethink the next steps of my career. The course provides a thoughtful immersion into the common law system, and explores how the legal profession is managed in the United States. Furthermore, the class is composed of students from all over the world, with whom I learned a lot. We had graduate students, recently formed lawyers, people who were preparing for LL.M. programs, and established professionals. Finally, living in New York City
is really fun and a great place to welcome family and friends, and offers
unlimited options for leisure.

LEI TestimonialDuring my time in the Fordham Legal English Institute, I found that one of the most important aspects of the program was the relationships I built. I developed close friendships with other LEI students, who are now LL.M. classmates. Thanks to this rich and fulfilling LEI experience I am now enrolled in the LL.M. program and have recently been hired at a law firm. Thank you LEI and the Fordham Law Family!
