English Language Skills for Lawyers

This programme has been designed for personnel who not only speak and write English at a good intermediate level but wish to improve their expertise for business: communicating in English in various ways from e-mail to personal appointments and group meetings. Emphasis will be on speaking, understanding and writing legal English (vocabulary building, sentence structure, and Dutch-English differences in presentation of legal material and general writing tips). Each programme is tailor-made; therefore some points may be emphasised to a greater extent than others.
They may include legal terminology, discussing information with clients, writing correctly in legal English, and sending comments/opinions by letter and fax.
