According to Neil J. Dilloff “Perhaps the most important skill for a young lawyer to develop is effective communication. From the initial job interview to the courtroom or conference room, almost everything an associate does involves some form of communication. Even when you’re not speaking, you’re still communicating through body language. To communicate effectively and create a positive impression on your listeners, whether they are partners, judges, clients, opposing counsel, or assistants” is essential for your job.

The course on Communication Skills for Legal Professionals is organised by the University Institute of European Studies (Istituto Universitario di Studi Europei – IUSE) and it is primarily intended for a small group of lawyers from the corporate sector or law firms and paralegals. The course is also open to law researchers, academics, young lawyers and law graduates.

The course is designed to develop participants’ language and communication skills in a legal context. The programme focuses on active speaking, writing skills and communication strategies.

Differently from other Legal English courses, the focus is on achieving an effective legal communications style that is correct, clear, concise and concrete.
