It’s Graduation Day at ELC!

In October 2018, 11 brave men and women arrived at the Maison de l’Avocat with a sense of trepidation and embarked on a marathon 18 months of legal English training with ELC. Some were lawyers, some were in-house lawyers, and one member of the team worked for an expert witness. Each member embarked on a voyage of discovery of the common law, visiting company law, contracts, damages, sale of goods law, intellectual property law, real estate law, tort, white-collar criminal law, debtors and creditors and even the dreaded litigation process.

Each topic was approached with flair and finesse, leading to some memorable debates, some hilarious role plays, a lot of chocolate biscuits and a legendary tax law/pancake evening.
At the end of the course, 9 of the brave men and women took the TOLES (Test of Legal English Skills) exam and did brilliantly! In fact, they did so brilliantly that we had to celebrate in style (finally … after a year juggling covid restrictions) with a picnic and a game of pétanque.

 

They are the class of 2020: Nathalie, Pierre, Justine, Ali, Chloé, Anne, Agathe, Bastien and Jennifer. They are beautiful. We salute them!
