English for Lawyers

You can choose between a range of English for lawyers courses either in London or online. The courses are aimed at lawyers, legal professionals, law graduates and law students. They include preparation for International Legal English Exam, TOLES, which has replaced the now discontinued ILEC exam.

Our trainers are specialist English language trainers with particular expertise in English for law. There is important input from the legal world: sessions led by practising lawyers provide an authentic and practical contribution and the participants usually also visit a law firm and the courts.


Legal English 20-30

This 3-week course is for newly qualified lawyers and law students to give them the legal language skills they will need for their careers. The course includes input from practising lawyers, visits to law firms and to the courts.

TOLES (Test of Legal English Skills)

This course is designed to prepare candidates for the TOLES (Test of Legal English Skills) examination. It is available as an optional 4th week after the 3-week Legal English 20-30 course.

Legal English 30+

This 1-week course is for qualified, experienced commercial lawyers from law firms or the corporate sector who have a reasonably confident command of English and want to work effectively in an international setting.

Legal English Online

This 6-month Legal English course online covers 400 words and legal terms commonly used by legal professionals. Practice exercises help you learn the meaning, spelling and pronunciation.

Taking the Legal English course was an incredible experience. The teachers are very good and helpful and the material is excellent. I strongly recommend it! 10/10.
