As a lawyer working in the international community, practical language skills are crucial. A course based on common law legal systems won’t help you negotiate a contract in English. You need to be able to describe and work within your own and other jurisdictions using English as a lingua franca. You need to be able to explain legal concepts in English to lawyers and clients that have English as a second language. You need to be able to understand the nuances of English as used in the international legal and business communities. Matt Firth can help you do this.
