Save time and money
TransLegal's training materials are designed to optimize results and save time.
The cost of the Legal English training program for the lawyers in your firm is more than what you pay to the company providing the training. The time your lawyers must spend away from the office or away from their work is a cost. The ineffective time spent training in a group and working on problems not specific to each member of the group is a cost. The time spent booking lessons and cancelling and rescheduling them is a cost.
TransLegal has taken its 20 years of experience in training lawyers around the world and produced the most time-efficient training materials for Legal English. Our self-study materials allow your lawyers to work through a program of study designed specifically for them and at times they choose themselves.

Start with the Legal English Audit
The best way to start is to have the lawyers in your firm undergo a diagnostic test of their language skills:
reading, writing, speaking, listening, and legal English vocabulary.
Our on-demand diagnostic test is a test of Legal English in a commercial law context based on the
Council of Europe’s Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) scale. The audit tests reading, listening,
writing and speaking and is based on tasks legal practitioners actually face. Once completed, we provide a full report of the results.
