Two-Year J.D. Program for Foreign Law Graduates

 
This program offers foreign law graduates the opportunity to earn a J.D. degree in two years. This program is ideal for those who desire a comprehensive understanding of the American Legal principals and who want to have access to the bar exam not just in New York State but in all 50 U.S. States.
 
Admission to the Two-Year J.D. Program requires:
 
  • Successful completion of a degree from an accredited law school in a country other than the United States
  • Submission of a Touro Law Center Application for Admission
  • Completion of the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) and subscription through LSAC to the Credential Assembly Service (CAS)*
 
*The LSAT is given each year in February, June, September/October, and December. Students may register for any test date and still be considered for the upcoming class, as long as their applications can be completed in time to be considered for the desired date of law school entry.
 
Qualifications for Admission to the Bar
 
In addition to a bar examination, there are character, fitness, and other qualifications for admission to the bar in every U.S. jurisdiction.  Applicants are encouraged to determine the requirements for any jurisdiction in which they intend to seek admission by contacting the jurisdiction.  Addresses for all relevant agencies are available through the National Conference of Bar Examiners.
