The course is aimed at law students and professionals who are non-native English speakers with the focus on the fundamentals of international legal English of Anglo-Saxon and Anglo-American jurisdictions in practice.
The required level of general English proficiency is intermediate to upper intermediate. Course will be held 100% in English.
The main objectives of the course are:
to increase law practitioners’ range of vocabulary of legal English,
to practise and increase comprehension of legal texts in various areas of law with a hands-on approach,
to gain confidence in communicating in applied legal English language, both in speaking and writing
to extend the knowledge of international legal English practice.
A broadly communicative methodology and a text and task-based approach is used. Pair and group work is an important part of the learning process. The reading texts are authentic or semi-authentic and provide context for international English legal vocabulary.
