Legal English Course


The terminology of the law constitutes the central focus of this course, which explores a wide range of legal vocabulary, from contract and tort to company law and human rights. Participants are asked to work collaboratively on language tasks, enabling them to pool resources and making the learning process more rewarding and enjoyable.
This ‘combined skills’ course aims to allow participants to practise and improve their speaking and writing skills. Participants are encouraged to discover for themselves how to write in a way that is clear, accurate and easy to understand using the 'plain English' style that has become the professional standard.

This course also aims to develop participants’ speaking skills in English by allowing them to explore and practise the language used to express opinions, give advice and negotiate a deal. The emphasis is on communicating ideas in a clear, effective, modern style.

Course Objectives

The principal objectives are:
  • to expand participants' knowledge of legal English terminology
  • to encourage participants to speak and write in a clear, effective style; and
  • to enable participants to learn more about the way English is used – and misused – in the institutions of the EU
Participants will also be encouraged to explore the difference between the English used in the EU institutions and the language used by native speakers.

Who should attend?

This course is designed for speakers of English at an intermediate level or above who have a particular interest in the language of the law.
