Master Class: Legal English offers cutting-edge and innovative courses to provide business and legal professionals with the knowledge and skills that are indispensable for working across cultures in the global marketplace.
Traditional Legal English courses have taken an academic approach to training. Classrooms and lectures are the primary teaching methods. We take a much different approach – one that is far more effective.
While our curriculum and training methods have been developed with state-of-the art literature, we emphasize the practical application of core skills and strategies. We recreate a real-world learning experience.
Using our signature training method, we use role-play simulations that enable legal professionals to integrate theory with practice. And we believe that innovation in training is essential to prepare legal professionals for the challenges of the new paradigm of the global marketplace. In all Master Class: Legal English courses, students interact directly with American and British lawyers.
