ContentThe need to train experts in the field of application of the Law who are fluent in the English language is given by the increasing relevance that this language has professionally in the different areas of the exercise of Law, both at the level of international trade, and in the treatment with foreign residents, especially due to the fact that English has become the new lingua franca. This requires that the professional to be efficient and competitive, especially in certain tourist areas, must have sufficient knowledge of technical language (legal English) to be able to interpret documents written in that language and to be able to communicate with their clients. nationals, as well as their fellow practitioners in other territories of the European Union. In addition to these linguistic competences, as an added value for the next edition, and given the incorporation in the direction of the course of the Illustrious College of Lawyers of Malaga, new matters of special relevance in legal practice, as well as comparative law, are integrated that address the legal issues that legal professionals encounter most frequently, between Spanish law and different legal systems of the countries whose nationals visit us or reside here to a greater extent. It should also be noted that this course is carried out with the collaboration of the General Council of the Judiciary, which contributes ten participants to the course. In short, this new approach, which seeks to specialize legal professionals who practice with foreign clients by providing them with comprehensive training that includes technical and substantive comparative law knowledge, makes this a new and necessary course for legal practice in Spain.
