Here’s What You’ll Get When You Sign Up

The course is composed of 12 modules. Each module is designed for 1 week of study - a semester length course. Of course, since it is online, you are free to learn at your own pace.  

The online content is over 50 hours of material. There are over 200 individual lessons!

Each module includes:

Flashcard Review

One of the difficult aspects of improving your Legal English skills is learning the vocabulary - the lawyer's lexicon. Each module includes a review of these words by using flashcards. This is a great way to practice. By quickly discarding the words you know well, you will be able to identify and then concentrate on the words you find challenging. You can review these flash cards unlimited times.

Video Lessons & Quizzes

Each module has several short video lessons that discuss new material. After the lessons, there are interactive quizzes to test your knowledge. This is a great way to identify your weak points and learn where you need to review. If a lesson, or one part of a lesson, is challenging for you, simply go back and review it and then re-take the quiz. You can take the quizzes as many times as you like.

Legal English Vocabulary pdf

The course includes a Legal English Lexicon Workbook. You can download this pdf and print it out for ease of use.

This Lexicon lists the important words (and their definitions) from the course. This is a great resource to review and study from.

Assessment after each Module

After each module there is an assessment that tests your knowledge and comprehension of the concepts discussed. Of course few people love to take tests, but this is an effective method to test your success in this module. This will help you identify the lessons that are weak points and that should be reviewed once more before moving on to the next module. By taking the time to review the results, you will greatly improve your Legal English Skills.

Why This Course 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. It includes 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 learn this material, it could be prohibitively expensively. Private tutors who teach advanced topics such as Legal English usually charge at least €20,  often €30 or more, some charge even €50 (or more!) per hour. This would mean €1,000, €1500, or even €2,500 or more for a similar training course!

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.
