PRACTICAL LEGAL ENGLISH ONLINE COURSE

A modern way to master Legal English

A one of a kind online course in Legal English for non-native speaking lawyers, law students and legal support staff

" ... I did not expect this course to be so effective and practical."
– Mikhail, Russian, attorney-at-law
Data-driven and technology-driven learning

You will work with real legal texts from day one. We fed our teaching engine with tens of thousands of actual legal texts - contracts, statutes, law articles and emails on legal topics - to create authentic reading material and exercises.

We make use of the best available technology to deliver the most advanced learning experience through modern tools such as Anki cards, chatbots and peer-to-peer review.

How will I study?

You will attend weekly live webinars with native speaking tutors. You will be able to see how your peers progress and directly ask your tutor questions.

You will study our online material, which includes reading annotated texts focused on active vocabulary and completing interactive exercises (multiple choice or free writing). Some tasks will involve you in peer-to-peer review to help memorise new things.

You will then perfect your new vocabulary by working with bespoke Anki cards and chatting with our skilled Telegram-bot.
How long is the course?
3 months.

You will study 10 to 20 hours per week


What level of English is required to start?
Intermediate or higher*

* - A2 or higher on the Common European Framework of Reference
Do you teach speaking?
No. For every call or meeting in English, you are likely to read and write tens of pages of legal text. The course is therefore focused on reading and writing - core skills for any lawyer
Do you teach grammar?
A little, but the focus is primarily on vocabulary, collocations, correct use of prepositions and tenses. You do not need to possess advanced grammar skills to read or write in Legal English, but you do need to be precise with your vocabulary.
