    Legal English (British English, English Law)

    I practised as a lawyer in England, in private practice, as a partner in a firm in South London, and in the "3rd sector". I managed cases of a various kinds and at all levels of the legal system. I taught law as a Senior Lecturer at 2 Universities in London; I wrote 2 legal dictionaries, one of which is still available for students.

    I am currently teaching law (comparative and international) to students at a leading private Paris Business School. This has required the creation of the course, the materials, including presentations, examinations and assessments.

    I have been teaching Legal English in Paris to (French) qualified legal professionals one-on-one in their office. The sessions are prepared to suit the needs and requirements and levels of the student. Written material may be provided for preparation and written work and oral work is undertaken in class.

    Each session is timed to last one hour.

    I am willing to teach on an individual one-to-one (one-on-one) basis or in groups.

    My fees are negotiable in appropriate circumstances.

    Extra information

    You should have a laptop available to enable written work to be done in the class when required, (using MS Word) and TeamViewer is suggested to enable real-time supervision if tuition is via the internet.

    About Me

    Former practising lawyer in England, and former Senior Lecturer in Law at university in England, and recently employed as a teacher of law at an école de commerce in central Paris and in private lessons at a firm of avocats with a French and international commercial clientèle, providing lessons at their office in the 7th arrondissement.<p>
    <p>
    As a practising lawyer I worked in private practice as partner in South London with various kinds of cases, and in law centres, doing social and community law. The work ranged all levels of the legal system, and included appeals to the House of Lords (Supreme Court), the Privy Council, from certain foreign countries, and that including but not only death-row cases.<p>
    <p>
    As a lecturer I was responsible for courses for undergraduates on law degree courses (LL.B). post graduate students preparing diplomas and research papers, and professional vocational qualifications, particularly the LPC (Legal Practice Course).<p><p>
    I have written 2 legal dictionaries, one of which is available to students now, called Plain Latin for Lawyers and Law Students. <p>
    <p>
    I have a particular interest in the English language and culture, and founded (in England, before moving to Paris) the George Orwell Festival. I have also established the The George Orwell in Paris walks. Orwell is famous not just for the quality of his own writing, and its significance well beyond his own time, but also for the quality of his advice and criticism about the use of English. He also had strong personal links with France which I am exploring.<p>
    <p>
    Many years ago I followed a Cours de Vacances en Littérature Française at the Université de Lausanne, Vaud, Switzerland.

    English/Turkish/Romanian lessons for second language learners
    English is a worldwide language that is very important to know. We will learn together! Not only with theory but also with a lot of practice! Learning the language consists of 3 important elements: reading, speaking, and listening. Wihout having all of them, learning will never be completed fully. In my lessons, I will use the International Cambridge system of teaching English as a second language.
