Hi Everyone.
I am trying to improve my English skills especially writing and reading in legal term.
Could you please suggest any materials such as textbooks?
For your information, my English level is in the intermediate level.
Some told me to start with "Professional English in Use Law". Is it good for the beginner in legal English learner?
Actually my short goal is to be able to understand some legal agreement and draft agreement in English.
Any advice are welcome. Thank you ^____^

When I arrived to Canada I decided to acquaint myself with the law and I read this book:

https://www.amazon.ca/Every-Canadians-Guide-Law-4th/dp/1554688825

I must say it was interesting reading. I do not remember if there's something about 'habeas corpus' or 'bill of attainder' but 'subpoena' and 'summons' I learned from this book. :)

And at the time I was at level C1.

Dear angjoe,

I am a lawyer with considerable standing. I advise you to read, study, understand and analyze the judgements of the famous judges and pleadings of legal luminaries for a vocabulary of legal terms written English.

For spoken English, try to speak English with your friends, teachers and family.
