These examinations have been specifically designed for international lawyers, law students and legal translators who wish to work in the area of English law.

The examination is recognised by some of the UK’s leading law and accountancy firms together with international companies and organisations such as Sony Ericsson, Siemens, the European Court of Justice, the International Criminal Court and the European Central Bank.

The examination can be taken at three levels:

1.  Foundation

This focuses on practical legal vocabulary in real life situations and consolidates basic grammar.  A course of study leads to a 90 minute exam testing the student’s legal reading and writing skills.

2.  Higher

Here the focus is on the further development of practical reading, writing and listening skills in authentic legal situations.  There is a 90 minute legal reading and writing paper and a 30-45 minute listening paper.

3.  Advanced

This exam measures a student’s legal English skills against the standards required of a native English speaker working within a legal environment.  At this level there is a 120 minute exam which tests practical reading, writing and drafting skills together with knowledge of register and business idioms.

There are five set exam dates each year and the current fees range from £60 for the Foundation exam, £75 for the Higher exam and £95 for the Advanced.

For all classes at ISE there is a maximum class size of up to 18 students. ISE offers a flexible timetable with classes running in the morning, afternoon and evening. We always try to create the best timetable to fit in with your time in Brighton.
