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.

Why Distant Learning of Legal English and Law?
Distance Learning allows people to access courses and studies that are not available in the place where they live or at the times they are free to study. Today a good working knowledge of Legal English together with a strong base of basic Western Law skills is essential for all International lawyers. A lawyer’s legal knowledge may be excellent but, unfortunately, the initial impression they will create upon others when speaking or writing in English will be governed by how correct and precise their legal English actually is. This is very unfair but it is how people react to the incorrect use of English You may be the best lawyer in the whole country but, if you don’t speak or write in perfect English, people’s perception will be that you will not be able to undertake a legal task which requires a knowledge of the English language.
Distance Learning allows lawyers and law students to develop their Legal English ability and also increase their practical law knowledge, no matter where they are in the world. The online courses come to them, rather than them having to travel to the classroom. This allows lawyers to study without having to leave their offices or take time away from work.
