- Upcoming Bucharest seminar signifies important milestone for linguistics training seminars – with over 200 EU magistrates trained within legal English and legal French.
- Seminar boasts wide European representation – with more than 50 participants from 12 EU countries.
The next linguistics training seminar is set to be held May 7th-11th, 2012 in Bucharest at the National Institute of Magistracy of Romania.
The multi-year linguistics programme, referred to as the Linguistics seminars, consists of seminars addressing the theoretical and practical sessions of the four basic language skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening within a legal terminology context.
The project’s seminars each see approximately 50 participants, whom are divided into three English groups and one French group. Each group is trained by two experts: a legal expert and a linguist. The experts, selected from national training institutions, understand the concrete work demands imposed on the judiciary.
May’s upcoming Bucharest seminar will mark an important milestone: over 200 EU magistrates will have been trained in legal English and legal French. July 2012 will mark the very final linguistics seminar set of this multi-year programme, when over 300 EU magistrates will have be trained within legal English and legal French.
Prior to the upcoming Bucharest seminar, the Krakow seminars, held March 5th-9th, 2012, gathered together an impressive 52 magistrates along with 8 expert trainers – with 22 magistrates from Poland attending. Feedback from the Krakow seminars was outstanding. The seminar’s participant evaluation forms revealed, on a scale of 1 to 10, a very high 9.2 average satisfaction rate with the training.
Interactivity and dynamism continue to be hallmarks of these highly-acclaimed linguistics seminars.
