    About the course
     
    The terminology of the law constitutes the central focus of this course, which explores a wide range of legal vocabulary, from contract and tort to company law and human rights. Participants are asked to work collaboratively on language tasks, enabling them to pool resources and making the learning process more rewarding and enjoyable.
     
    Participants will also be encouraged to explore the difference between the English which is used in the EU institutions and the language used by native speakers.
