If you work as a lawyer in an international environment,
your English skills should be advanced.
You need to be able to understand "legalese" and the formal structures used in law,
as well as be able to communicate with clients of all backgrounds.
You need to know how to speak, write and understand English
with a high degree of fluency in order to accomplish
your customers' objectives and meet their needs.

This is a unique, intensive course for belarusian lawyers
that enables participants to broaden their Legal English vocabulary
and acquire confidence in explaining points of law and
discussing current topical issues in a business context.

This is going to be the sixth session of our Lawyers Talk Shop. And the previous five were great! I'm really proud of the work we did! I met wonderful people that did their best to get the most out of this course. And we got incredible feedback from them. All of this indicates that we are on the right track.

This autumn I'll try to gather law experts and lawyers interested in professional development in one place one more time. And here again it is a great challenge. But I can promise you one thing: we'll do our best!
Let's discuss law in English and acquire new knowledge both in law and language!
