Legal English with professional British lawyers

Most of our legal trainers are practicing British barristers, or Solicitors. This gives our training a huge advantage over other providers. Our teachers have a deep understanding of our students’ professional needs and requirements and maintain the highest level of legal ethics and teaching standards. We understand that small details, such as legal etiquette, are as important as knowledge of the law and legal language. We also understand that our students need these for their professional development and growth, and we provide both to ensure their career development.

The British Legal Center also provides helpful resources and law articles: comments on new laws and acts, best practice guides for young lawyers, speaking in public, writing successful CV's, letter writing skills, and legal document drafting. You can also attend online free Legal English lessons.

"Hello! My name is Olena and I’m from Ukraine. I am a master graduate of international law and currently working as a Junior Associate in one of Ukraine's big law firms. “When you really want something, the whole universe conspires in helping you to achieve it” - this is what Paulo Coelho wrote in his book, The Alchemist. I believe that this is true. I’ve studied English since first grade and now I have an advanced level. But ever since I started working as a lawyer, I wanted to learn more legal English. Just a few days ago I said it out loud, while talking with my friend. Then, I woke up this morning and saw an ad of your online course in Facebook. So, perhaps, the universe itself has conspired in helping me achieve my wishes :)"


Olena Shumalo, Ukraine, 4th April 2020

"The feedback that I can give about the pre-recorded Contract and Legal Document Drafting Course is that it was great, it was what I was looking for. I had a lot of insights and I loved the English way of writing contracts that you've taught: Plain English, parallelism, active voice, short sentences, avoid nominalisation, etc. As a Latin speaker, Portuguese and Italian tend to be redundant and use long sentences. Finally, congratulations for all the hard work you put in this course!"


Vanelle Stabilito Mesquita, Brazil, 29th January 2020

"I would like to express my gratitude for the course – I think that I could find everything in the course that I would need to pay attention to when creating a contract. I am lucky that I managed to take a Contract drafting course with you. Before the course, I could not even imagine that I would be able to draft an agreement in a foreign language – it is a huge step forward. Thank you! "


Marina Pisareva, Russia, 14th January 2020

"It was my pleasure to join your class and your Legal English course has been very useful. I will follow you via LinkedIn in order to be updated about your initiatives/courses. I thank you again for your kindness, your time and your availability and I hope to be part, during this new year, of another team always "driven" by you in discovering the peculiarities of English law and language."


Ylenia Martarello, Italy, 7th January 2020

"First of all, I would like to express my gratitude for this valuable experience and knowledge that I have earned through your online course. Being a law graduate from Lebanon, kindly note that I have completed my bachelor’s degree in Lebanese and French law. Taking into consideration that I am willing to pursue my master’s studies in London, the Legal English course provided by Mr. Richard Brady, contributed to expanding my knowledge in common law and clarified the Anglo-Saxon System. Moreover, the course helped in enhancing my legal writing and contract drafting skills and contributed as well to developing my legal vocabulary. When I took this course I wasn’t sure if an online course would be beneficial to me but due to your professionalism, it was an interesting experience that challenged me to improve my English language."


Mira Chedid, Lebanon, 25th November 2019

"Excellent! I had a great, truly beneficial experience. I recommend Legal English courses even to native speakers! I've learnt here how to write better, more persuasively, using "tips & tricks" that no other school would teach! Thank you Mr. Brady."


Ana Maria Ranete, Lawyer in Bucharest, Romania

"You are great teachers! I found the Contract Law Course extremely interesting. The home-tasks put me in front of real legal issues and I have been very stimulated trying to settle them."


Claudia Borghini, Singapore, July 2019

"I have taken some formal legal studies in the past few years but I am not fully confident with my writing skills. As such, I was searching for a suitable writing course for over a year but most writing courses in Australia are fairly short (one or two day courses) and costly. I enrolled in the Legal Writing Course with the British Legal Centre in January 2019. It took me close to two months outside of my work to complete it. The 60 sessions are comprehensive, I've learnt so much from how to choose and use precise words, understanding the power of persuasive writing and drafting good legal letters and the like. Also, Richard is an amazing legal English teacher. He speaks clear and slow so non-native lawyers or law students should not have a problem understanding the sessions. I strongly recommend this course to law students, support staff who work in the legal industry and new lawyers and conveyancers. "


Venus Chow, Australia, March 2019

"Let me begin by thanking you for the Contract and Legal Document Drafting course. It was extremely clear and useful, especially for a "civil law" user, given that our remedies are slightly different. What I appreciated the most were the lectures re representations, warranties, indemnities. I have already recommended my colleagues to also join this course."
