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.

Our Residential Spring, Summer and Autumn Schools


Our residential schools are based on the principle of bringing practising British lawyers to train the lawyer/participants. These schools run in the UK, Ireland and also in other countries outside the EU. The courses cover a range of different professional legal skillsas well as covering preparation for the TOLES Legal English  exam. 

We are particularly pleased to run the Summer School courses in association with our business English partners in Ireland, Language Link, at their premises in Limerick in the beautiful West of Ireland. The relaxed Visa regime in Ireland means that there is no problem for our students in obtaining reasonably priced visas very easilly.

There are many lawyers who cannot, attend courses away from their home Countries. By flying our trainers to the participant’s Countries there is no need for our students to worry about visas, flights, long periods away from home
 
There are a variety of seminars and courses at each residential school. These can be as short as one week, or can last up to 4 weeks, depending upon the participants' needs. The results give us a very clear picture of what topics are of interest, the depth of knowledge requested, the numbers of attendees and the amount of time they have to study. This allows us to tailor courses to the participant’s requirements, rather than making participants fit in with our schedule and course content.
 
We arrange a variety of excursions for the participants and their families so that partners and children do not feel neglected.
