Legal English is becoming an essential field of study for professionals that seek to communicate effectively in judicial spheres in law, not just in Brazil, but in different countries. The major challenge in this area is finding technical terms that make sense in a Brazilian law context, which is fundamentally based on the civil law tradition. By way of contrast, in the majority of countries which has English as its official language, their adopted judicial system is that of the common law.
As the two systems are complex and different to each other, both in relation to their overarching concepts and their terminology, the task of translating and interpreting texts has become a challenging endeavor for professionals that have dedicated themselves to this area.

In addition to practicing legal English, students are placed in practical situations to evaluate their performance in real situations, such as negotiations, customer interviews, and writing in English.
