How our Legal English Courses work
First, you will discuss with us your needs from our teachers. Are you looking to improve your legal writing skills, your general legal English and business English skills or are you preparing for the TOLES exam? Are you looking to increase your commercial awareness? Do you need to focus on a particular area of law such as contract drafting?
We will then prepare a plan for you and talk to you about your options.
If you agree, you will officially join Legal English UK as a student. It is an exclusive club that includes some of the most ambitious international lawyers in the world.
