English is an essential tool for any lawyer working with international matters. It is the lingua franca of the legal profession, of business and of international affairs.
Legal employers need a tool to assess whether their legal staff and prospective employees have a sufficient level of English to be able to communicate efficiently with clients, colleagues and professionals in other countries, and to handle information written in English. At the same time, law students and newly-qualified lawyers need to be able to prove that they have these skills.
The Cambridge ILEC - International Legal English Certificate - meets these needs.
This course, comprising of Block I and Block II, teaches lawyers and law students how to use English in a commercial law environment focusing on a variety of legal topics including contracts, company formation, debtor-creditor relationships and intellectual property rights. Using authentic texts to present and practise legal language, the course develops the four key skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking. The course provides the necessary exam preparation for the Cambridge International Legal English Certificate (ILEC) which can be taken at the end of Block II (May 2010).
