Fluency in legal English requires two critical competencies:
1) knowledge of the distinct words, phrases and methods of communication, and
2) the skills to communicate in this language effectively.
Students will improve essential skills for communicating with international clients, colleagues, opposing counsel and/or audiences, whether it be speaking, writing, presenting or negotiating. The Master Class: Legal English Foundational course is designed to improve both student skills and confidence across a broad array of essential legal communication needs.
Students will also acquire greater depth of intermediate-advanced English language skills essential to the legal profession: expanded legal vocabulary, higher reading and listening comprehension capabilities, more familiarity with unique features of American and British legal English.
