Lo scopo di questo blog è quello di interpretare le esigenze degli studenti di giurisprudenza che si avviano allo studio del "Legal English".
Nello specifico, familiarizzare con le diverse tipologie di documenti legali, nonchè analizzare le peculiarità del linguaggio giuridico inglese.
Ci saranno attività di ascolto, lettura e comprensione, progetti di glossari per area di studio, batterie di esercizi per rinforzare il lessico specialistico e migliorare le strutture grammaticali.

ADR: Alternative Dispute Resolution:
negotiation: participation is voluntary and there is no third party who facilitates the resolution process or imposes a resolution
arbitration:participation is typically voluntary, and there is a third party who, as a private judge, imposes a resolution. Arbitrations often occur because parties to contracts agree that any future dispute concerning the agreement will be resolved by arbitration.
mediation:there is a third party, a mediator, who facilitates the resolution process (and may even suggest a resolution, typically known as a "mediator's proposal"), but does not impose a resolution on the parties
