Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The course will develop your competence to work confidently in English in a legal context by improving skills in the four language areas - reading and writing, speaking and listening.
Core of the course is Cambridge University's syllabus in international legal English; the main (obligatory) textbook is Cambridge`s "International Legal English"; with additional material drawn from online sources such as The Guardian law pages, law reports, professional websites etc. Video and audio are also used.
Although based on Common Law and Commercial law, the concepts are found in many legal systems. Texts and topics include: company law, contract, sale of goods, employment, real and intellectual property, and competition law. However, it should be emphasised that this is not a course in substantive law - simply that these subject areas provide a realistic context for language training.
Teaching is in a participative, tutorial format offering opportunities to use the skills that you have learned in teaching sessions. Many classes begin with a small group discussion of a current legal issue. Weekly preparation and exercises, lasting 90 mins. are an integral part of the course. Programme leader is David Goulden, a Cambridge-qualified barrister, and an experienced ILEC trainer.
