londonLawyers use language with particular care and need to be certain that a language course will enable them to communicate accurately and that they will understand precisely what they read and hear.
Our trainers are specialist English language trainers with particular expertise in the law. There is important input from the legal world: sessions led by practising lawyers provide an authentic and practical contribution and the participants usually also visit a law firm and the courts.

Legal English: Commercial Lawyers

Helping commercial lawyers to work effectively in an international setting.  This course is for qualified, experienced lawyers from law firms or the corporate sector who have a reasonably confident command of English.

Legal English: Public Sector Lawyers

This is a highly specialised programme designed for lawyers working in the state or public sector, either in central government departments, ministries and authorities, or for regional or local government.

Legal English: Young Lawyers

This three-week course is for newly qualified lawyers and law students to give them the specialised language skills they will need for their careers.  The content is varied and includes input from practising lawyers, visits to law firms and to the courts when in session to ensure that participants experience the language in action.

TOLES (Test of Legal English Skills)

This course is designed to prepare candidates for the TOLES (Test of Legal English Skills) examination.  It is available as an optional 4th week after the 3-week Young Lawyers course.

ILEC (International Legal English Certificate)

This 3-week course is designed to prepare candidates for the ILEC (International Legal English Certificate) examination, which is offered by Cambridge ESOL.  The course is recognised by several international law associations.

TOLES or ILEC?

The International Legal English Certificate (Ilec)

cambridgeCambridge Academy of English
65, High St,  Girton
Cambridge, UK, CB3 OQD
www.cambridgeacademy.co.uk

 

This certificate provides what law firms around the world have long requested – an internationally-accredited test of spoken and written English for lawyers and students of law whose first language is not English. ILEC is already acquiring a status similar to that of other internationally-important Cambridge ESOL examinations such as FCE and CPE.

Students wishing to prepare for ILEC can follow a course leading up to the ILEC examination. Preparation at The Cambridge Academy of English has two main goals:

1. Development of the student’s general English skills to the level required to pass ILEC

The level of general English required to pass ILEC is high (Common European Framework level C1) and clients preparing for the exam will therefore be helped to develop the same level of general English language as is needed for the Cambridge Advanced Certificate or Certificate of Proficiency in English.
Students sitting the ILEC examination will benefit from working on a broad range of skills: oral fluency, listening comprehension, reading comprehension and writing.(15 hours per week – morning classes)

2. Preparation of the student in the specific language of legal English.
This is divided into three main areas:

  • contract law
  • civil (including commercial) law
  • legal systems

cambridgeThe preparation will include topics such as: different types of lawyer and court, lawyering skills, competition law, employment law, European Law, intellectual property and administrative law. Students will also be introduced to all parts of the ILEC exam and be given exam practice tasks.
(10 hours per week – afternoon classes)

We usually recommend that clients needing training in legal English should follow our 50:50 formula English for Lawyers 50:50 Combination Course.

The “50:50” course comprises 12.5 hours of 1:1 training with 12.5 hours of training in an international small group. The course therefore provides ample opportunity for the study ofspecialist legal language, but at the same time gives clients the chance to practise the all-important general communication skills in English needed by any modern professional.

The 1:1 element will allow you to:

  • Concentrate on special topics of skills eg. intellectual property law, company law, employment law, taxation
  • Prepare for specific events such as where English will be the medium of communication, and when negotiating an important contract
  • Concentrate on writing practice, eg drafting commercial contracts, writing letters Prepare for the new International Legal English Certificate (ILEC

The small group element will enable you to:

  • Practise taking part in meetings and discussions
  • Learn how to argue persuasively without appearing rude or aggressive
  • Participate easily at informal events such as parties and dinners
  • Practise making presentations to an audience
  • Develop your skills in asking and answering questions on legal and other issues.

English for Law students

cambridgeWHO ARE THE COURSES FOR?

For advanced students of law and young practising lawyers who already have an 'intermediate' knowledge of English but wish to improve their ability to understand English and communicate in English in the context of law.

WHEN DO THE COURSES TAKE PLACE?
There are currently five courses per year: four 3-week courses in the period from June to September and one 3 to 4-week courses in January.

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT TO LEARN IN THREE WEEKS?

  • Activate and make more fluent the knowledge that you already have
  • develop your communication skills, both oral and written
  • expand your knowledge of vocabulary, legal and general
  • compare your jurisdiction with those of other course participants
  • learn how to keep up your English when you return home
  • and, above all, gain confidence in your own use of English!

HOW WILL THE COURSE BE STRUCTURED?

The course content is always partially negotiated on the first day of the course.

Each week consists of 21 hours of tuition in international groups with a maximum of 12 participants. The emphasis at all times is on communication and language skills within a legal context.

  • Communication skills, e.g. negotiating, eliciting facts, presenting data
  • Reading skills: understanding the language and analysing the structure of typical legal sources (e.g. legislation, English and European case law)
  • Writing skills, e.g. drafting legal documents (e.g. contracts) and letters
  • Systematic expansion of legal and general English vocabulary

The course will also include:

  • Meetings with members of the legal profession
  • A visit to a local law court
  • A full-day visit to legal institutions in London
  • An optional ‘mock’ trial.

WHERE WILL I STAY?

Staying with a CAE host family is an integral part of the course and not just an extra: your host family provides a valuable opportunity to continue to practise and develop your English in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. All host families are within easy reach of CAE, normally within walking distance. Accommodation with a host family costs GBP120 per week and includes breakfast and a hot evening meal. You will be required to pay an Accommodation Placement Fee of GBP60. Hot and cold lunches are available in the CAE canteen for about GBP4.00 – GBP5.00.

WHAT ABOUT SOCIAL ACTIVITIES AND SPORTS?

There is a full and varied programme of social activities and sports, which are included in the course fees. CAE also organises full-day excursions for an additional charge and as an optional extra on Saturdays. CAE is open on Sundays for study or for social activities from lunch-time onwards.
