Program Description

Legal English

London Meridian College

At London Meridian College we have several Legal English programs available.

London Meridian College is proud to offer full-time and intensive courses for students who need extra guidance in their preparation for the Legal English leading to the International Legal English Certificate (ILEC).

The language of lawyers is very specific and our aim is to ensure are students are able to comprehend the spoken and written English used in the legal world.

The courses include:

  • A structured course covering the main aspects of Legal English.
  • Visits to see the London courts in action.
  • Guidance in preparing for the Cambridge ILEC Certificate Exam.
  • Exam registration service.

Our tutors have long experience in teaching English and in addition have a legal background. From time to time we have guest lecturers and all classes visit the court.

LMC offers professional courses like the Legal English Course. The main advantage for me is that it is taught by an experienced professional, which means practical information is given and this is really useful.

Similarly to any other courses leading to exams your chances of success depend on the amount of self study you do on your after school hours.
