COURSE TERMINOLOGY Show more

A 15-unit, video-conferencing, interactive course which deals with the essential Legal English words and phrases lawyers need to work effectively in the area of Oil and Gas law. This includes the legal principles of oil and gas law law and deals with breaches, remedies, estoppel, part-performance, land ownership, leases, guaranties, taxation, covenants, and other essential Oil and Gas law.

COURSE DURATION

The course is delivered by 15 lessons of 45 minutes duration with a further 15 -20 hours of online interactive self-study and also includes the option of a further 3.75 hours of private instruction by a B L C lawyer-linguist instructor who is assigned as your personal tutor. This private instruction is delivered by a weekly 15 minute video-conference using our advanced technology. These calls are scheduled at times convenient for you, to train speaking as well as legal understanding of technical terms and also to deal with specific writing exercises through which the learner practices legal drafting skills. Students can study at their own pace and, although it is recommended that participants limit their study to one unit per week, a faster pace of study is available to those who feel capable of covering more than one unit a week. As some of the other students will almost certainly be in other cities, and even different Countries, we try to agree a mutually convenient time for all the students in the group. We are happy to time the lessons for the weekends or public holidays if this is what the students want.
