An updated pull-out glossary is included in the Student's Book. International Legal English Second edition is ideal preparation for the Cambridge English: Legal (ILEC) certificate and contains exam practice tasks, exam tips and a practice ILEC test.

Introduction to International Legal English is the intermediate level course, suitable for law students or newly-qualified lawyers who need to use English in their legal work or studies. The course prepares learners for using English in a commercial law environment, focusing on a variety of legal topics including company, criminal and comparative law. It is suitable for learners who may not have extensive knowledge of the law, taking them to the point where they can begin using the International Legal English course and start preparation for the Cambridge English: Legal (ILEC) examination.
