Success Stories: Intensive Legal English for Lawyers (Group Class)
Client: Lawyer's Bar Association of Almeria, Spain
Location: Various locations around London
Course Title: Intensive Legal English Training for Lawyers
Duration: 10 Days
An association of solicitors in Almeria, Spain came to us to request that we help several of their members improve their Legal English language skills and increase their knowledge of English Law.
What We Did:
We separated each lesson into a different area of law, so one day the students would focus on contract law and the next day on criminal law. We wished to provide them with an introduction to the language of law as succintly and as comprehensive as possible.
In addition to academic classes, we also organised activities linked around legal London. These included a walking tour, a private visit to The Supreme Court of the United Kingdom, visits to law firms, discussions with leading barristers and solicitors and guest speakers from international law.
The lawyers also wished to know more about London, so we held each class in a different location tied to the subject of each lesson. The English Legal System was covered in Westminster, IP Law in Shoreditch, Media Law in Soho, etc.
How We Did It:
The class was taught by one of our senior Legal English language teachers who is a native British English speaker with assistance from a lawyer/tutor who speaks Spanish and English.
Materials were gathered from a range of sources; including in-house worksheets and exercises as well as Legal English books, newspaper articles and law reports.
How Successful was the Course?
The course was incredibly succesful with all of the students praising the variety of activities, the tutor and the depth of the course programme.
"I have enjoyed a lot and learnt enough in two weeks about different things in English, the legal system in the UK, and all the experiencies have made me grow in a few days, so now I fell more confident on my own and when my husband met me in London he was very proud of me. Your classes have been brilliant, even the locations chosen have been fantastic. Congratulations!"
