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.

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.

Constance
Cours particulier en anglais
Il est vital de nos jours de maitriser la langue anglaise, que ce soit pour les études, pour le travail ou même pour un voyage. Il est donc important de travailler votre anglais aussi bien à l'écrit (grammaire, orthographe, conjugaison) qu'à l'oral (conversations, mises en situation). Pour cela, je vous propose une pédagogie individualisée, répondant à vos besoins. Ayant étudié en Angleterre et aux Etats Unis et ayant fait des séjours linguistiques en Irlande et en Australie, je pourrai vous transmettre de solides connaissances et des aspects culturels ayant trait à ces pays.

Anglais pour tous! English for all : children, teenagers, adult, retired or working professionals!
English is the most commonly spoken language in the world which means that you will meet a lot of people you would want to or have to converse in English. If you are an adult, and searching for a job, learning English can increase your chances of getting hired in your country or abroad. If you love travelling, speaking English will make your life much easier. If you are retired, develop a new passion of learning a foreign language. I am an Indian by origin, and I speak four different languages including French. English is not my mother-tongue but I speak almost as good as a native speaker. The classes would be adapted to your needs and expectations. There is no age limit to join my classes. Contact me for more information (availability, location, etc)

Apprendre la culture et la langue anglaise simplement
L'anglais est un outil de communication incontournable. Le cours insiste sur la pratique orale afin que les participants puissent développer leur capacité à s'exprimer dans des situations, familières ou dans des domaines d'intérêt personnel. Vous allez élargir votre vocabulaire, acquérir des principes de la prononciation et de structures grammaticales de base, parfaire votre conversation autour de sujets simples ainsi que votre compréhension à travers la lecture de cours textes et la discussion de sujets d'actualité dans le monde anglophone.

Practice makes perfect! Cours d'anglais à domicile
Etant bilingue, ayant fait toute ma scolarité dans un pays anglophone, et diplômé de l'Université de Cambridge, je vous propose des cours d'anglais quelque soit votre niveau (débutant à avancé). Ce serait avant tout un cours de soutien adapté à vos besoins tant rédactionnels qu'oraux. Le déroulement et le contenu du cours seront donc établis en fonction de vos aptitudes qu'on tentera ensemble de faire évoluer. Je recherche avant tout des personnes à caractère sérieux avec qui on se lancerait dans la découverte et la maîtrise de la langue de Shakespeare!

Cynthia
Cours d'anglais
L'Anglais est une langue merveilleuse en plus d'avoir la qualité d'être parlée partout dans le monde. L'apprendre n'est pas chose facile lorsque qu'on ne sent pas suffisamment apte à maîtriser une nouvelle langue. Or, il suffit d'une bonne préparation auditive et linguistique pour s'habituer très rapidement au listening, la base de la compréhension d'un nouveau langage. Devenue bilingue grâce à une méthode non contraignante, je peux vous partager les clés de ma réussite. Particulièrement adapté pour le (très) jeune public. Don't hesitate, Speak it!
