Legal English Program (TOLES)

Law firms, legal consultancy offices and corporate legal departments demand professionals who can demonstrate their knowledge of legal English with a high-quality training program.

Furthermore, the ability to communicate professionally in English has become essential for success in the international workplace. To be able to compete effectively in today’s global economy, businesses must hire and invest in people whose command of English is commensurate with their particular profession.

In order to provide lawyers and future legal professionals with in-depth knowledge of legal English, and drawing on its experience in recent years as an ILEC exam preparation center, Centro de Estudios Garrigues has designed a specialized Legal English Program involving preparation for TOLES (Test of Legal English Skills) exam that will allow students to improve their all-round English communication skills.

To round out training in legal English and ensure that students receive an introduction to the fundamentals of common law, Centro de Estudios Garrigues offers the chance to obtain a Certificate in Anglo-American Law by completing a specialized module.
