The course

English Plus Law at Kings combines General English with specialist law-related topics and the option to prepare for the Cambridge ILEC exam.

The Cambridge ILEC qualification

English is essential for anyone intent on a career in the law as it is the common language of the legal profession and international affairs.

The Cambridge ILEC , International Legal English Certificate, is a high-level language qualification for lawyers which assesses English language ability at Levels B2 and C1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

It is suitable for law students intending to follow courses which include a significant English language content — either in their own country or abroad.

For more information about the ILEC exam, see the Cambridge website.
