ELI/LAW awarded one of the first-ever Pitt SEED Awards

The US Law and Legal English Program (LLEP), a partnership between the English Language Institute (ELI) and the Center for International Legal Education (CILE) in the School of Law, has been honored by the Office of the Chancellor as a “Pitt Seed Project” 2018.  Twenty seven projects at the University received this distinction and will receive funding for directly and actively:

Advancing educational excellence
Engaging in research of impact
Strengthening communities
Promoting diversity and inclusion
Embracing the world
Building foundational strength

LLEP will serve as a model of cooperation between departments at the University for the development of educational programs that are entrepreneurial in nature and enhance Pitt’s reputation around the globe. The Program will also establish a foundation for similar programs that can be used to draw a global student body to other units of the University of Pittsburgh.

Rob Mucklo, Instructor and Special Programs and Activities Supervisor at the ELI, worked with representatives of CILE to develop the curriculum for the LLEP program, which will be offered for the first time this summer.
