About this publication
The first year of legal studies can be daunting. In addition, many first-year students entering university find studying in English, which is their second-language, very difficult. Studies have proved that some L2 students come to university ill-prepared to deal with the complex academic language required to access their content areas.
Thus the aim of this book is to provide first-year, law students with practical opportunities of gaining the communicative skills needed in the academy. The text focuses on academic reading, writing, speaking and listening, with an emphasis on reading.
