Our tutors are always on hand to offer advice as to what we consider to be the achievable outcomes of the courses we are asked to develop and we work with our clients to ensure that we achieve their targets for knowledge acquisition.
Our experience has taught us that knowledge of the law is not enough to be a successful lawyer in today’s legal sector. We also seek to provide training and coaching in a range of essential professional skills that lawyers need in order to provide a full service to their clients. We have courses covering topics such as, public speaking and presentation skills, court-room advocacy, case preparation and presentation, ethics.
Our successful tailor-made legal English intensive courses require the full involvement and participation of all those involved in the development, preparation and delivery of the course, from those deciding what skills and knowledge are needed, through the course writers to the teacher and the students. This is a co-operative undertaking and it requires full participation by everyone involved in the process to achieve truly successful outcomes. We will do our part and hopefully you will too.
