This is what our students say about our Legal English Courses.


Bernardo Gehlen, Brazil, 1st July 2020

Actually, I would like to express my gratitude for all the information and material available in the course. I have learned a large number of interesting tips on contract drafting and I feel much more comfortable on expressing my ideas clearly and efficiently. I could understand more about the common law basis on contract drafting. This has been useful for a better understanding of comparative law and it has been allowing me to find equivalent legal terms or clauses for contract translation (english-portuguese-italian). Thank you!

Oksana Pirogova, Russian Federation, 29th June 2020

Thanks so much to Richard Brady for the excellent comprehensive course on Company and Corporate Law. The lessons present the information in a very clear manner. After this course it will be much easier to study other common law courses.

Jane Kochanski, France, 30st May 2020

I can recommend British Legal Centre to all legal translators and lawyers wishing to deepen their legal English (contract law, intellectual property law, arbitration and conversion with a view to becoming a Solicitor). A big thank you to Richard Brady, Director, Lawyer and Trainer for this excellent training!


Prokopios Krikris, Greece, 18th May 2020

The Legal Writing course offered me a lot of knowledge and assisted me to understand the many mistakes in my writing (especially legal writing). I will keep practicing, in order to increase my legal writing skills, something that will benefit me in my career. Further, you stressed during the course, the importance of clear drafting and writing. Contractual construction and interpretation could be limited or avoided when the parties express clearly their intentions and agree on the terms in the contract. Less ambiguity results in less Litigation that will expose the parties to costs/ expenses/ risks, and bitter feelings. Thank you for sharing the knowledge.

Mr Mifraz, lawyer in Male', Maldives, 12th May 2020

Let me begin by thanking British Legal Centre for providing the course 'Contract and Legal Document Drafting' which is truly beneficial. The course is designed to enhance the knowledge and skills required to draft contracts and general legal drafting in an extremely clear and precise manner. I really enjoyed taking part in the course because of the fact that its flexible, intriguing, informative, and I gained valuable insights into legal and contract drafting. Thank you Mr Brady.

Ylenia Marcucci Faure, Italy, 18th April 2020

Dear Mr. Brady, I have just watched the first recorded lesson of the Free General Legal English Course. Later today I will watch the other ones. I would also like to attend your next live lesson on 21st April (code Lesson GLEC-1.5). I am an Italian-English translator and I specialise in legal English. I have to say that the lesson was very informative, easy to follow and extremely well explained – a pleasure to listen! Probably one of the most interesting courses I have attended/watched. Thank you very much for sharing your experience with us in such a pleasant and entertaining way.

Olena Shumalo, Ukraine, 4th April 2020

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 :)

Vanelle Stabilito Mesquita, Brazil, 29th January 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!


Ylenia Martarello, Italy, 7th 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.

Mira Chedid, Lebanon, 25th November 2019

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.

Marina Pisareva, Russia, 14th 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!


Juliana Martínez, Senior Associate, Costa Rica, June 2019

Thank you for an excellent course!

Claudia Borghini, Singapore, July 2019

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.

Anita Govind, UK, March 2019

It has been such a great course Richard; I've learnt much in making my writing tighter. Your presentation style is so articulate and easy to understand. Your success is well-deserved.


Kei Ikuta, Japan, March 2019

I have now completed the Contract and Legal Document Drafting Course, which was very informative and useful for my practice.

Venus Chow, Australia, March 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.

Azhar Bashir, Pakistan, Feb. 2019

I would like to thank BLC team, specially Mr. Adnan for conducting a successful Contracts and Legal Document Drafting training class. The training was very helpful in gaining legal know how regarding the drafting of the contracts. As an engineer and without any legal background, I was a bit apprehensive in the beginning to attend a legal class. However, the training was structured in a very easy-to-follow manner, even for an engineer to understand complex legal terms.


Nina Schmuecker, Germany

Thank you very much for the recordings of Legal writing course! I really enjoyed them. They helped me a lot in understanding legal writing. I took great pleasure in listening to real Queen's English. It is great to have someone explaining legal terms who is an experienced practitioner. Thanks a lot!

Wagner Osti Pedro, Embraco, Joinville, Brazil

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

Rafael Mechi Nunes, Sr. Contract Lawyer, Sao Paulo, Brazil

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.


Jorge José Lawand, Sao Paulo, Brazil

The training material will be very valuable. I really enjoyed the course, and I hope receive in the future about the next courses, here or elsewhere.

Dr Shalakany, Senior and Managing Partner Shalakany Law Office, Cairo

I write to thank you for the excellent training program/workshop you conducted for us a few weeks ago in Cairo on 'Contract Drafting'. I have now had an opportunity to review the evaluation forms in detail and they all confirm the very positive feedback we got verbally. The grading across the board was between '4' and '5', i.e. very good and excellent. Participants used words such as 'lively and well structured', ' very beneficial', and 'perfect refreshment on basic legal information'. We look forward to more programmes in Cairo.

Nuran Kerimov, Partner, Tax & Legal Services, Deloitte & Touche LLC, Azerbaijan

It’s with pleasure that I can recommend BLC to any interested party. I can confirm the session that BLC and Deloitte Baku ran together on legal writing for lawyers in the beginning of November 2012 was well delivered and we received great feedback from the students. Thank you and look forward to working together in the future.


Botagoz Arystanbekova, Akbulak Club Resort LLP, Kazakhstan

I especially appreciate the information and advice you have provided during the seminar. I have gained valuable insight into the Anglo-Saxon legislation system over the seminar. I’m sure it will be very useful in relations with foreign companies. Also I’m very interested in the International Legal English certificate course and will be glad to participate.

Riza Zulkarnayev, Senior legal adviser, NCOC, Kazakhsatn

Thank you again for your useful seminar!

Alessandro Chiarenza, Malta. Jan 2018

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.


Ana Maria Ranete, Lawyer in Bucharest, Romania

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.
