The course aims to provide those attending with the opportunity to develop their legal skills by acquiring knowledge of legal terminology and concepts within the context of legal systems. The course shall take a practical approach to the acquisition of legal terminology and concepts by using legal documents and cases to allow the students to see the language in context and apply them in role-plays, discussion and the preparation of legal material themselves.
