Think like a lawyer


Tagged: , , , ,

Hi Learners and Lovers

We´re talking about Law today. Let me ask you this: do we really need lawyers?

There is a great video I got straight off YouTube from the Texas A&M School of Law Media. To find out more about them, click HERE

Listening/Speaking

Don´t worry if you aren´t a lawyer. You will watch a video which shows a case. Pause the video and discuss with your teacher what the officer should do. Continue watching the video to see if you were right.

Please don´t feel bad if you´re a lawyer and get it wrong. We´re only here to improve our English.

 

Here is a fun song for lawyers. Pause the video after every line and check your listening comprehension.

 

This is the end of our lesson. If you have suggestions or recommendations for our next topic, please let us know in the comment box below.
