Improve Your Legal English Skills

Our Courses and Blog are a great way to improve your Legal English skills. Take advantage of the site to enhance your professional skills and increase your knowledge. 

International Communication

In the Twenty-First Century, the world is inter-connected and communication is key. For legal professionals (lawyers, judges, legal translators, and others in the field), everyday English skills are not sufficient. Legal English skills are paramount when negotiating international contracts, treaties, and countless other agreements.

You control the Learning

Our courses are designed for you to improve your Legal English skills at your own pace, from the comfort of your home, office, favorite coffee-shop, or wherever you may be. 


You will learn Legal English terms, concepts of Common Law legal systems – used in England, the United States, and other countries – and also improve your reading comprehension and listening skills.

Why Study Legal English?

Many law firms today need lawyers who can speak both the local language and an international language – usually that is English. To be competitive, a modern lawyer needs the ability to communicate in English.

Important Skills

You will learn these important skills by studying with us. After the completion of each course, you will receive an official Certificate.

Terms of Art & Common Collocations

However, knowing general English is not sufficient. You need to understand Legal English terms and collocations if you are going to: 1) give legal advice to a client; 2) negotiate with another attorney; 3) make legal arguments in front of an international tribunal (a court, arbitration panel, etc.); or 4) simply meet and network with colleagues at an international conference.

Instructor is very friendly, he helps students to understand better each issue, speaks slowly and concentrates to the substantive parts of the class. His experience comes from the various parts of legal environment, so he can share his working and academic experience to students.

I would recommend this instructor to others for several reasons. He is a native speaker and has highly organized teaching methods. Also, if you are lost or confused that something is unclear, he is always ready to help you. Last but not least, you will find a friendly environment in his class.
