Upcoming Seminars:
July 9-20, 2012

The Legal English seminar exposes foreign legal practitioners and law students to English legal terminology and usage through an overview of the U.S. legal system, contract law, and commercial law. In addition to learning a broad range of legal terminology, participants benefit from an introduction to the legal reasoning process in the U.S. legal system, helping them to apply the terms and concepts as they learn them. Participants in this seminar will develop the advanced skills they need to succeed in a multi-jurisdictional legal practice. The language and reasoning skills that they develop are useful not only for working with clients, firms and organizations in the United States, but also for understanding the logic behind U.S. legal practice and applying U.S. legal reasoning in their own practice.
