Legal English







International Legal English (ILE) is an upper-intermediate to advanced level course for learners who need to be able to use English in the legal profession. The course is intended for law students and practicing lawyers alike. Since the vast majority of practicing lawyers in the world deal with commercial law, ILE focuses on the use of English for this purpose. Within the field of commercial law, a number of important topics (corporate law, contract law, intellectual property, real property law, employment law and sale of goods) have been selected as the legal subject matter of the units. Particular emphasis is placed on the areas of corporate law and contracts – with three units dedicated to each – as the majority of commercial lawyers practice in these areas.
