MHS is pleased to announce its collaboration with Enlite Training Institute in Dubai to provide legal English and skills training courses in UAE.
Together we have designed a new course:
This is a 5 day intensive course aimed at legal professionals who work within these two systems of law to communicate effectively in drafting, interpreting and negotiating commercial contracts and legal documents in different jurisdictions.
This is a 5 day intensive legal english course in which you will practice to draft, interpret and negotiate commercial contracts and legal documents in different jurisdictions. This course addresses some of the key differences between the common and civil systems of law and examines the consequences of those differences for commercial and corporate legal practice, in particular drafting, negotiating and interpreting commercial contracts and corporate documents. It is aimed at legal professionals who regularly have to make the leap between two systems of law – either because they are trained in the civil law system but conduct business and legal transactions based on common law principles, or because they have a background in common law and operate in a civil law environment. Our objective is to provide the background knowledge and the practical tools to make that transition easier and to enable delegates to move confidently between the two legal traditions, allowing them to work with agreements and instruments from different jurisdictions.
