Sommario del corso
The course, for students who should already be at a B1+/2 level of English according to the Common European Framework, will be divided into three parts.
Part 1 will focus on revsing/consolidating English grammar, syntax, and general and specific (legal English) lexical items.
Part 2 will deal with reading/writing and speaking/listening skills and strategies.
In the third and main part, students will make practical applications of their language skills using a range of general and specific legal texts.
The primary aim of this part is to concentrate on aspects of the language of legal English by dealing, in particular, with the English legal system, its courts and the legal profession. Specific laws and cases will also be discussed.
Special attention will also be placed on language used in international legal contexts and some of the difficulties involved in translating legal documents.
Students will be required to present an extended essay in English on a particular aspect of the English legal system to be discussed at the exam.
The course will be in English. Full participation is expected and a certain amount of self-study is also required (assignments and preparation of the extended essay).
