The Contract Law course covers the law of contract and the vocabulary needed by lawyers working in this area of law. The course uses video-conference technology to deliver brief online speaking, reading and listening exercises and tasks. The exercises following each lesson include a variety of different multiple choice tasks. These are designed to help participants understand and learn the correct use of the vocabulary through its use in simulated work scenarios that occur in the daily working lives of lawyers in practice. All of your results are retained in our on-line archive which the participants can visit to check the rate of improvement.

Frustration of Contracts
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 contract law. This includes the legal principles of contract law and deals with breaches, remedies, estoppel, part-performance, restraint of trade, guaranties, indemnities, warranties, conditions and other essential contract law.
The course is provided by 15 lessons of 45 minutes duration, with a further 7 hours of online interactive self-study.
Students can study at their own pace and, although it is recommended that participants limit their study to two units 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.
