Welcome to the Linguistics Projects section!
“Mastering a foreign language and its legal terminology is important and should form part of the continuous training of legal practitioners. It is a precondition to effective contacts across Member States, which are in turn the cornerstone for judicial cooperation. It is essential that all stakeholders pay attention to training on legal terminology of foreign languages”.
– European Commission – Communication of 13 September 2011 on Building trust in EU-Wide Justice, A new dimension to European judicial training (COM (2011) 551)
