Provides the necessary tools to build on language skills in a professional context through familiarisation with realistic legal scenarios and materials prepared by a qualified lawyer. This book is intended for those studying law within an English language jurisdiction, both students and teachers of legal English, and others.
More and more law students seeking a legal qualification find that their English language skills let them down.
