Washington University School of Law First to Offer Online Legal English Class for Foreign Lawyers

by Paul Joseph on April 25, 2013 · 0 comments

Washington University School of Law in St. Louis, Missouri, has begun offering a ground-breaking course in Legal English to help international legal practitioners develop the skills needed to conduct law-related business matters. The law school is the first top-tier U.S. law school to offer such a course in an online format, allowing legal practitioners to develop related skills without having to travel to the United States for an extended stay. Legal English is recognized as the predominant language used around the world for conducting legal business matters. This legal language comprises unique terminology and words and phrases from the American common law system. This makes learning Legal English a daunting task for lawyers from countries where English is not the primary language. A firm understanding of Legal English is an essential skill for any student studying U.S. Law and for conducting legal transactions and business negotiations around the world.
