Other Information

The ETC course of English for Law / Legal English is significantly different from our standard General English course as it uses specialised legal English vocabulary and structure.

Lawyers and legal professionals employed by international corporations and legal firms need to be able to understand documents written in legal English and to communicate effectively with professional colleagues in English.

The ETC English for Law / Legal English course uses a modern communicative approach designed to develop the student's ability to understand and express concepts in legal contexts and situations which the student is likely to encounter in their everyday professional life.

The ETC English for Law / Legal English course uses task-based learning including group exercises, supervised discussion, role play and presentations to develop the student's ability in the key skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing and to widen their understanding of essential legal English, language structures, vocabulary, appropriate common expressions and grammar.
