Many legal professionals find themselves with a need to communicate legal concepts in English, but find it difficult to do this. Without knowing the proper words and vocabulary that lawyers use, it is challenging to discuss legal issues.

A Lawyer needs to communicate

In the 21st Century, many attorneys need to know not just their own language but also English, so that they can both communicate and negotiate with Clients, Foreign companies, International organizations, Opposing counsel, and International tribunals. 

Become a Better Lawyer

Many law firms require their attorneys (especially new attorneys) to know English. Indeed, if your understanding of Legal English is limited, then your career prospects may be limited as well. 

Legal English Terms

The course will teach many Legal English terms that lawyers need to understand. Examples of sentences using these terms and collocations are throughout the course - so that you not only learn the meaning of the terms, you can see it being used in different contexts.

Why Elemental Legal English 

is so Valuable

Elemental Legal English is based on a semester length course taught at a university and also to practicing attorneys, judges, and other legal professionals. There is over 50 hours of online content.

If you were to take a similar course at a university, it would be much more expensive. And it would be time restricted. One of the great advantages to E-Courses is that you can work on them on your schedule, not the instructors. Perhaps you have extra free time and want to get the course done quickly? Or perhaps you start taking the course, but then something comes up and you cannot work on it for a few weeks? Either way it is not a problem: the course is there when you are ready for it.

If you were to hire a private instructor to teach this material, it could be prohibitively expensively. Private tutors who teach advanced topics such as Legal English usually charge at least €20 per hour, often €30+, some charge even €50 or more. This would mean €1,000, €1500, or even €2,500 or more for similar training!

Additionally, this is a course that has been the result of teaching over 1,000 students! Over the past several years, Timothy Barrett has taught Legal English in many venues with many different students; each time, improving and honing the course. The Elemental Legal English course that is offered to you is the result of this process. You get to benefit from the material developed for and included in this e-course.

    Importance of Legal English


    Legal English is almost its own language. With many words or terms having an 'everyday English' meaning and a different 'Legal English' meaning.

    To competently discuss important legal matters, it is paramount to understand the vocabulary that lawyers use.

    It can be frustrating to not understand what the terms or phrases being used mean. Or even worse: to misunderstand.

    The course will teach many Legal English terms that lawyers need to understand. We will also discuss common collocations - so that you will be familiar with how lawyers frequently use these words. Examples of sentences using these terms and collocations are throughout the course - so that you not only learn the meaning of the terms, you can see it being used in different contexts.

    This course is designed to help you improve your Legal English skills.
