Course Description

Chinese for Lawyers is a course in Mandarin Chinese in a legal context, offered through the Center for International Legal Education. Chinese for Lawyers acquaints students with grammatical structures necessary for effective communication in Chinese, introduces basic legal and business vocabulary in Chinese and strives to give a sense of the cultural, legal and business environments in China. The course materials are organized as a series of dialogues written in Chinese characters, the Pinyin romanization equivalent and English translation. The materials are tied together as a story of an American lawyer who travels to the People’s Republic of China to negotiate business deals and establish operations on behalf of an American company. Real life transactional contracts/agreements with China are also included in the course.
No prior instruction in Chinese is required for Chinese for Lawyers I.
