Certificate in Legal German - Goethe Institute and Law Society of Ireland

This course will offer a practical introduction to legal German and the German legal system. The course programme was designed in conjunction with Irish legal professionals advising on the areas which are of specific importance to Irish participants and a German legal consultant providing expert advice on German legal matters. The course is divided into a number of modules dealing with relevant subjects, such as the German legal system, Courts and Court Procedures, Company Law, Property Law, Contracts, among others. Each module provides an overview of the background to the topic, followed by reading of relevant text materials and consideration of the linguistic aspects of such texts with appropriate exercises. Special emphasis is placed on verbal skills, eg discussion of implications for the current legal position in Germany and Ireland. This course is also designed to provide the necessary skills to deal competently with German lawyers, clients and business people.
