This Workshop will be structured around a number of case studies in English, each drawn from a different area of legal practice. The participants will have the opportunity to apply their skills, in each case, to finding practical solutions for a client’s legal issue. They will receive constructive feedback on their use of Legal English (in both oral and written form) and concrete recommendations on potential areas for improvement. The focus of Day 1 of the Workshop will largely be on developing the participants’ oral communication skills in context, while Day 2 will focus mainly on developing the participants’ written communication skills. There is no formal assessment at the end of this Workshop, but the participants will have the opportunity to submit (on a voluntary basis) a short piece of legal writing relating to one of the case studies, on which they will receive detailed feedback.

    Day 2: Sa.21.10.2017, start: 10.00, end: 15.00
