Introduction to International Legal English is an intermediate level course for law students or newly-qualified lawyers who need to use English in their legal work or studies. Suitable for classroom use or self-study, the course prepares learners for using English in a commercial law environment, focusing on a variety of legal topics including company, criminal and comparative law. Using authentic legal texts and case studies supplied by TransLegal®, Europe's leading firm of lawyer-linguists, the course develops learners' understanding of the law while simultaneously consolidating their language skills. Featuring both academic and professional contexts, Introduction to International Legal English develops the four key skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking. Introduction to International Legal English is suitable for learners who may not have extensive knowledge of the law, taking them to the point where they can begin using the International Legal English coursebook and start preparation for the Cambridge ILEC examination.
