English is the dominant language of international business relations, and a good working knowledge of the language is essential for today’s legal or business professional.

This course provides a highly practical approach to the use of English in commercial legal contexts, and covers crucial law terminology and legal concepts. The book is written with the needs of both students and practitioners in mind, this book is particularly suitable for readers whose first language is not English but need to use English on a regular basis in legal contexts.

The course covers both written and verbal legal communication in typical legal situations in a straightforward manner. In addition to chapters on the grammar and punctuation utilised in legal writing, the book features sections on contract-drafting and the language used in negotiations, meetings, and telephone conversations. It features a companion website which contains exercises covering the majority of the topics covered in the book’s chapters.

This edition thoroughly revises and expands the content of the companion website and contains updated examples, more detailed explanations of problematic areas, and an expanded section on writing law essays.

Private Sessions are Also Available.
