How to Find Out About Legal English Events
Why are Legal English events important?
I’m always eager to find out about Legal English conferences and workshops happening around the world. Why?
Reason #1 Skills
These events are an excellent way to update your professional skills and get the latest info about teaching Legal English. Often I come away from events feeling inspired to try something new in my Legal English classes, having learnt about a new resource or teaching method from a fellow ‘Legal Englisher’.
Reason #2 Travel
I love to travel and these events often give you the chance to see a new city, experience a new culture and sample some tasty authentic local cuisine. I always try to stop a day or two longer after a conference or workshop for a working holiday and often combine a city tour with meeting someone to interview for the Study Legal English Podcast.
Reason #3 Connect
They’re a great way to make new connections and aside from networking at the conference or workshop itself, there are often chances to socialise in a more relaxed environment and make some long lasting friendships as well as connections who you can call on when you have a Legal English question.
How to find out about Legal English events
The problem is, it can be a pain to find out about Legal English events – and if you’re not careful you can spend hours trawling the internet searching for your next conference hit. Many independent Legal English teachers lack the colleague interaction that our fellow Legal English university professors get, and therefore we might miss some events which are otherwise spread by word of mouth.
Worry, you need not, my Legal English friend – there are indeed a number of ways to stay informed about Legal English events, previously I’ve mentioned a few ways in this blog post about ‘How Legal English Teachers can Stay Up To Date‘. Here I just want to highlight some ways you can use the Study Legal English events page to stay informed.
#1 Add Study Legal English Events Page to Your Bookmarks
On the Study Legal English event page you can find upcoming Legal English events which are happening around the world. These events are not organised by Study Legal English, they are external events. I try to keep this up-to-date and welcome you to send me information about forthcoming events to add to this page.
Adding this page to your bookmarks can be a helpful way to not forget it exists and allow you to easily access it whenever you want. If you use Google Chrome follow these steps to add the events page to your Bookmarks:
