Course Description

This is a course designed to develop the conversational, writing and reading skills in French to permit an American lawyer to communicate effectively with French-speaking clients, and to understand references to the French legal system and to the European Union likely to arise in the course of an international law practice in the United States or an American law practice conducted in France. The course will differ from that of a typical college French class in that it will be oriented towards the law in the areas of vocabulary, composition topics, readings, dictations and in-class conversation.
