I must say that I had a wonderful time at the training and I learnt a lot. Lawyers in Anglo-Saxon countries say that the English language is a tool of their trade,yet so many don't use it effectively. The training equipped me with the necessary skills to use English legal writing to communicate more effectively.

For sure, everybody enjoyed the training. It was very nice to hear a native speaker, specially one with such high legal drafting techniques

Excellent course. I recommend the training 'Contract Drafting and Legal Writing'. It gave to me the chance to understand the need of Plain Legal English in contracts as a way to mitigate ambiguity or misinterpretation of a clause. Also the training clarified the context in which Anglo-Saxon Legal System is inserted, since the Brazilian Legal System is in a different one.

Any misgivings that learning Legal English online results in a less rigorous knowledge and understanding of Legal English vocabulary should be immediately disregarded. Learning Legal English online is a highly flexible and modern approach. Taking online classes at a Legal English school does not mean that the standard of Legal English vocabulary learnt is lower than any other course or school. The challenging Legal English school exercises have to be undertaken and result in an exceptional understanding of Legal English vocabulary by participants that will be of huge benefit to any international law firm.
Although knowledge of the language is a valuable skill in itself, without knowledge of Legal English vocabulary professional lawyers will be unable to understand the terminology and phrasing as Legal English is very different to the traditional English language. It could even be described as a “language within a language” and thus is an entirely separate skill for a professional lawyer to acquire.
A knowledge and understanding of Legal English vocabulary is therefore something that every professional working within a law firm must have. Many law firms now have offices throughout the European Union and there is a greater need for law professionals with a working knowledge of different legal terminology. Therefore learning Legal English online will ensure that a law professional is a huge asset to any international law firm.
It goes without saying that British barristers are experts in law terminology and anyone learning at a Legal English school with British barristers can expect to finish the course with a thorough knowledge and understanding of Legal English.
As the above demonstrates, Legal English is an invaluable skill for professionals to acquire. Learning Legal English online with British barristers is a fantastic way to ensure a thorough knowledge and understanding of Legal English vocabulary which will result in the course participant being a real asset to any international law company.
Legal English SchoolTo learn all the aspects of lawyers’ language you need to attend a special Legal English school. It does not have to be a Law School.
