Program description

Legal English for Business

Students and professionals who are studying or working in the business or law fields and are interested in improving their English through the study of business law topics would benefit from this program. This course will focus on developing skills for various business law scenarios and mastering legal and business vocabulary for effective oral and written communication. Students with a high-intermediate or advanced level of English proficiency are welcome to take this course. English proficiency is determined during orientation at the time the student arrives at UC San Diego English Language Institute (ELI). Students who do not obtain the required English level for this program will take Conversation and Fluency (beginner, low-intermediate, and intermediate levels).

If you plan to come to the U.S. mainly for tourism, but you also want to improve your English, you can apply to this 4-week program with reduced weekly hours. Instead of 20 hours of instruction per week, you will have 15 hours per week.
