Test of English Legal Skills (TOLES) Foundation

General English and legal English are two different languages.  English lawyers write in a separate language than other people in their country, just as lawyers in any other country do.  Legal English frequently uses unusual sentence structures. Lawyers frequently utilize terminology that have been out of regular usage for centuries.  It’s necessary to study and practice new prepositions.  Every page of a business contract or letter contains a new technical term that must be understood. The goal of this course is to examine real legal setting, not made-up ones.  Due to this, there is a high emphasis on real-world tasks and jobs that require practical application, as well as on candidates’ ability to understand terminology right once.
