What’s Been Going On?

Posted by:

It has been a while since I’ve posted. And before I was so religious about it. I’ve been busy with lots of activities, hence the lull of silence.

First, I launched my online legal English school, The Global Legal Institute. I offer language courses and lessons aimed specifically at lawyers and legal professionals abroad who need English for their job. I teach technical legal English. With my backgroun in teaching and law, it is perfect. All the courses are done in an online, virtual classroom so I bring the comfort and ease of technology to language learning.

I’ve also been working a lot for Law Linguists. They are the only translation agency in the world that does just legal translations, done only by licensed attorneys. I do Italian to English translations. Fun stuff, especially learning about the Italian legal system and civil procedure as many of the translations are technical and discuss the rules of civil procedure and the civil code.

Finally, I accepted just yesterday a position with the University of Minnesota law school. I will be teaching in the school’s LLM program, which is specifically aimed at foreign lawyers who want to come to the States to improve their English, get an advanced degree and learn about the US legal system. I will be teaching a course on legal writing and reading. A perfect match and way to bring together my love of teaching, writing, languages and language learning.
