English for Lawyers (EFL)

About the Course

This training program simply aims to improve your ability to act in a legal environment. It enriches your awareness of the legal use of English language. It mainly focuses on two sides, the first is the 'legal terminoogy' that is commonly used in various branches of law (e.g. commercial, corporate, arbitration, etc.) as outlined below, and the second is the 'language aspect' which includes, among other things, how to understand legal phrases and sentences, how to realize the interconnections among different words, how to use punctuation, capitalization, etc. in legal contexts. In order to make sure that learners have absorbed the legal terminology of each branch of law, they are asked to do different types of exercises so that they use the legal terminology correctly and professionally in different legal contexts. Moreover, every learner is asked to make a Power Point presentation in a legal issue of his/her choice, so that he/she can improve search and presentation/speaking skills.
