Welcome to LegalEnglish online consultancy, offering content-language integrated training (CLIL), specially designed for busy lawyers and executives whose demanding schedules make it difficult or nearly impossible to participate in live courses, but still wish to improve their English as well as knowledge and command of legal English terminology.
LegalEnglish online consultancy is an approved TOLES Examination and Training Centre.
English is today the dominant language in both the world of leisure and international business. Thus it is not surprising that a sound knowledge of English has also become essential for non-native English speaking legal professionals.
Legal English and ordinary everyday English are not identical. Legal English is the language used by Anglo-American lawyers. It is a specialised language. As such it has certain characteristics that make it difficult and obscure even for native English speakers. Recognising and overcoming these linguistic difficulties is essential in order to be able to understand legal documents drafted in English.
As a language service provider with legal background (lawyer-linguist) and experience in in-company training LegalEnglish online consultancy covers a wide range of areas: Law (namely, International Law, European Law, Conflicts of Laws, World Trade Law, International Trade Law, Law of Treaties, and International Human Rights) Legal English, Business English, English for Insurances, Financial English, Human Rights Education, Conflict Management, Mediation, Intercultural Awareness and Oral Communication Skills. The aim is to offer all those involved with the practice of law assistance in using English legal terminology.
Misconceptions and terminology errors could end up in costly lawsuits.
The purpose of LegalEnglish online consultancy's courses is to teach legal English, not English law. The courses focus, in particular, on explaining German law in English using thereby the correct legal terminology.
