Language being a crucial tool in the work and success of the lawyer, the importance and growing relevance of legal English is becoming ever more internationally recognised, as the ubiquitous demands of globalisation make no exception of the sphere of law.

Typical Course Content:

Drawing on studentsā€™ own needs for the direction of the course, the programme typically includes using as many realistic work scenarios as possible to structure the lesson, while integrating all four language skills as relevant to each activity. There is therefore heavy reliance on the active involvement of students who are expected to contribute their own experience to the class in order to create effective and highly engaging simulations of the office and the courtroom. Such activities include:

  • formal and informal debate to hone the skills of expression of opinion, argumentation, persuasion and negotiation;
  • preparation and delivery of interesting presentations;
  • active participation in meetings;
  • confident networking in multicultural business environments with a view to making contacts;
  • agreement and contract drafting;
  • report-writing;
  • discussion of legislative proposals;
  • interpretation of various legal documents.

For confident operation within such frameworks, students are provided with a solid lexical basis that includes the necessary terminology related to a range of different areas, such as:

  • real property law;
  • intellectual law;
  • employment law;
  • contract law;
  • corporate law;
  • secured transactions law;
  • judicial review
  • public liability;
