Legal and Business English

The initial reason why Deusto Alumni has decided to organize this specialized course is the express request of the attendants to the course entitled “Introduction to Legal English” that finished by the end of February, having a large attendance and a great success.

Nevertheless, we have also taken this step due to two additional reasons. On the one hand our awareness that this new course is an invaluable opportunity to acquire and be familiarized with the legal-business terminology required to understand the important topics in which it will apply, and on the other hand that it will undoubtedly be an important asset for the Curriculum Vitae of students, trainees, and employees in both the legal and the business sectors.
