Language training for the legal profession
Cactus has been designing and implementing language training programmes to a wide range of industries since 2000. From corporations and SMEs to individuals, our range of clients has grown significantly since our inception. Here, we look at our experience working with legal organisations in Europe and worldwide in delivering tailored language training to the legal profession.
Legal Profession – Industry Specific Training
Cactus has organised language courses for individuals and groups all over the world, catering to all needs and interests. One of our great strengths is designing courses that cater to specific industries, delivering business-specific course content to firms in sectors as diverse as marketing, fashion, technology, mining and relocation. We understand that each of these industries requires language training in order to communicate more efficiently with colleagues and clients. We also understand that the vocabulary, etiquette and business environment that go with this may be vastly different for each different sector.
It is here that our clients reap the benefit of our extensive network of qualified, native speaker trainers. Our portfolio of teachers and trainers cover a multitude of skills and experience. This gives us the ability to match a trainer to a specific training request, no matter how niche the industry. In other words, we can always find the right person for the job.
Language of Law
One area in which we have had particular success with language training is Law. Our courses have covered sectors of the legal profession from corporate law through to intellectual property law. These courses equip employees with the precise skills they need to meet the demands of their legal roles head on – from articulating complex ideas to high level audiences to understanding the nuances of written and verbal communication within their industry.
The implementation of a training programme for the legal profession
Whether training is to take place on an individual or group basis, the first step will always be for Cactus to take time to find out more about the exact role, current legal projects and language ambitions of the individual(s) involved. A training programme is then devised with course participants contributing ideas as to what they would like to cover. This inclusion is such that they are involved in their own course design from the outset and remain motivated throughout. The resulting course may be 1:1, group, in-company, online, full immersion or blended learning.
First-hand experience with law firms
A long-standing client for us in the UK is international law firm Olswang, for whom we have provided tuition in French, Spanish and German. While in the US, we have provided Mandarin language tuition for San Francisco-based Cooley LLP. Our team has also provided language training to the legal counsels of some of the UK’s top financial institutions including Lloyds TSB, Barclays and Standard Chartered.
Having spoken more in depth with the Training Coordinator at Olswang, it is clear that delegates at their London office have enjoyed benefits from their language training both inside and outside the work place. Not only have classes been an ideal opportunity to network within the firm and meet people they wouldn’t have otherwise, they also provide valuable skills to enhance communication with overseas offices and international clients.
